Be Still and Listen

Raise your hand if you like discomfort.

No one?

Raise your hand if you like boredom.

Still no one?

While we can’t see the show of hands, it’s pretty safe to assume that most people aren’t eagerly lining up to learn about three easy steps to bring more discomfort into their lives. We live in a time when it’s all too easy to hear news about violence and tragedy, and that alone is a big source of discomfort, sadness or rage. It’s also all too easy to avoid the resulting despair with a comfortable alternative—books, television, calling a friend.

However, the uncomfortable truth is that our discomfort and even our boredom have value. If we can sit with those less than desirable feelings for just a bit, we might find ourselves on the path to feeling a little better, being more caring, finding a deeper connection to God and discovering ways we can share God’s love with the world.

In this issue, writers and artists will invite you to stillness and authentic listening. May this issue inspire you and equip you with the tools to look forward to stillness. May it brace you for pushing through discomfort and boredom. And may it strengthen you, a beloved part of Presbyterian Women’s community who witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
