I’m reading this book about prayer and it’s eery how much it resonates with my thoughts earlier today about flow and God as a glacier upstream https://t.co/b6rcVMQLdQ
“Streams of mercy flow. I begin with God, who bears primary responsibility for what happens on earth, and ask what part I can play in God’s work on earth. ‘Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!’”
“I plead with God, as if hoping to change God’s mind and overcome divine reluctance. Instead, I should start upstream where the flow begins.”
