See also ‘adventures‘, and ‘no growth‘.Today’s reading – where the disciples leave what they are doing and follow Jesus is always a big challenge – how much are we caught up in what we are doing and therefore not ‘living life to the full’, have the ‘adventures’ that God wants us to have – are we so worn down by doing, that we’re not listening/following? (Challenge to self!)… Meantime, I have set aside today/tomorrow to work on my book, and this is my last task before I go quiet for (most of) the day…


Another challenge from A Rocha to think about the earth that we live in, and how we care for it – and that maybe we can’t solve the biggest problems (ourselves), but we can make an individual stand – and if enough of us make a small stand… Today’s is to think about our use of plastic – reuse bags, beware packaging, careful with plastic cups, etc… I am getting much better at remembering to take bags in for my shopping (and using all the charity bags that come through the door as rubbish bags … I don’t really have anything left to give away – everything I’ve kept I have a use for.. or I take them to the shop itself!)

and at some point take that 10 mins out from my books to be #notbusy! Although taking time out to read my books from the deluge of online information is inspired by #notbusy itself…
