I also enjoy a regular dose--in moderation--of change around me and within me. But, when the sea salt canister has been moved from where I usually find it on our lazy susan and I cannot find it, all sense of normalcy vanishes. It doesn't take much to create a mini-crisis of change.
Yet, I find it comforting to know whatever change and transformation occurs within me as I follow Jesus and pray for others is prompted, inspired and shaped by the Master himself in community with the Spirit.
