Lent

Rev. Rory Swenson (check him out from my list of favorites) is posting some daily devotions/thoughts for Lent. Pretty cool idea, so I thought I'd try to post a quote or two that I find pretty interesting. It's not likely that they'll all be theologically/religious based, but more along the lines of mysticism, nature, and how we fit into God's world.
Here's todays:
A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or, he may be in Church and be aware of God; but, if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him. He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.
Meister Eckhart
Peace,
Jeff

Likewise. It's interesting to see what people have to say. I'm going to try to be "earthy" in my approach. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the plug!
