Merton’s Voice: It is God’s love that speaks to me in the birds and streams but also behind the clamor of the city God speaks to me in His judgments, and all these things are seeds sent to me from His will.

Merton, Thomas. Seeds of Contemplation. (Norfolk, CT: New Directions Books, 1949) 18.

Psalm: 50: 10-11

For every wild animal of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the air, and all that moves in the field is mine.

“Hear the word of the Lord…’Wash, make yourselves clean…cease to do evil, learn to do good, search for justice, help the oppressed, be just to the orphan, plead for the widow.'” (Isaiah 1)

Nouwen’s Voice: Discipline follows from being a disciple. It is our effort to do as our Master does. Jesus gave space for the Father to give him what he needed. When you and I are fearful and anxious, we want to take control of our lives…When we follow Jesus we practice a discipline that gives space to let the Father touch us, forgive us and receive us.
