Hymns of Glory

“In the immense cathedral which is the universe of God, each man, whether scholar or manual laborer, is called to act as the priest of his whole life–to take all that is human, and to turn it into an offering and a hymn of glory.”

Paul Evdokimov

It’s hard to imagine that even the most boring aspects of my life can be turned into something that would bring glory to the Divine. But then I wonder: why are those parts of my life boring? Because they were inherently and irrevocably so, or because I’m not using them properly?

Maybe life isn’t boring at all sometimes.

Maybe it’s me who’s bored with the incredible gift I’ve received.

Maybe it’s time to stop writing (and for you, to stop reading) and go do something about that.

    That’s the amazing concept of the gospel. That in every moment God desires relationship with us. If we can hand over those moments in obedience, imagine what kind of life we’d lead. It would be all but boring 🙂 Now it’s time for me to stop reading and start praying he’d do that for me.
