I have a Challenge and a Riddle for you today. BUT,.. it’s going to take some work on your part. So,…stop reading right now if you don’t want to do the work – unless of course you’re a curious soul like me and don’t want to stop until you find out what the challenge involves.

•  Read Fr. Richard Rohr’s meditation, Embracing Enoughness. My Cliff Notes version for those who don’t want to even read 496 words is:
   I have just 3 things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. (Lao Tzu)
   We can’t discover the truth until we remove the clutter, (Rohr)
•  Decide at least one action to take to implement Enoughness.
This counts as simplicity.
•  Do it during the next two weeks.
It can involve physical clutter (food, clothing, shelter, and the money to pay for these)
OR intellectual clutter (meetings, information overload, work space),
OR emotional clutter (worries, self-esteem, annoyances)
This counts as removing clutter.
•  Read the “reveal” in two weeks. I’ve already done this challenge.
Waiting to read my experiences counts as patience.

•  What does coping with Covid-19 have in common with liturgy (ritual prayer)?
For extra credit ponder (and share) what the coronavirus is teaching you.
