Convener Ramblings, May 2019

by Rich Gierak, Nor Cal MALEs Convener

Greetings Brothers,

I pray this note finds you well and in good spirits.  I find myself over-busy (again) these past weeks with Easter, family visiting from Texas, our NorCal Illuman leadership retreat and my first participation in the Illuman leadership retreat in Missouri.  What continues to remain steady is my meditation practice that helps me keep the outer busyness in perspective by ensuring I make time to continue my inner journey.

I look forward to catching my breath and allowing my soul to catch up with me over the next couple of weeks. For me, the calendar seems to be overbooked from March into early May and this year was no exception.

Do you ever experience periods of such business that your prayer practice is disrupted?
How do you manage through these times and how do you get yourself back on track?
