CAN I BE INTERRUPTED?

Dietrich Bonhoeffer calls us to consider the place of interruptions in our life

“We must be ready to allow ourselves
to be interrupted by God. God will be
constantly crossing our paths and
canceling our plans by sending us
people with claims and petitions.
We may pass them by, preoccupied
with our more important tasks…
When we do that we pass by the
visible sign of the Cross raised
across our path to show us that,
not our way, but God’s way must
be done. We must not assume that
our schedule is our own to manage,
but allow it to be arranged by God.”
-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Life Together
