More on "Intention".
Food for Thought this month is from an Instagram post from the Amazon Rainforest Workshop (posted 10/2/17 at 12:46 p.m.) It continues the theme of "intention" from our last post, written by our friend, Rev. Tom Gerstenlauer, the pastor at South Congregational Church in Springfield, MA.
"Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So, go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you."
Another quote about intention is familiar to all of us: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."
Apparently, intention is not enough, but paired with action, it is unstoppable!
Another famous quote we like is from Mahatma Gandhi: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
This is the way we think about prayer at Prayer Soup: be the prayer you say, don't just say it. What would your prayer look like if you added action to your prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving, or to your request for forgiveness or intervention?
Ah, food for thought.......
