Jesus said to his parents, “[Know] ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?" - Luke 2:49 (KJV)
While reading about the prophet Anna in Luke’s Gospel, I felt guilty. A widow, Anna “did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” I’m also a widow but have never spent a whole day praying, let alone fasting. Was I failing God?...
How am I going about the Father’s business today?

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
