THE GOD OF ALL DIRECTIONS – Reflection for May 2009.
Where do you go to look for God? To a Church? To a quiet place? To your own inner room? Easter tells us that the Risen Jesus is no longer confined! There is no place in the world where we cannot find God! Here is a story from Islam which illustrates this:
“The old Sufi stirred a bit, opened one eye, looked at the man, and smiled, “I thank you, sir, for your concern”, the Sufi said, “So before I go back to sleep”, he went on, a grin playing at the corner of his mouth, “would you be so kind as to turn my feet in some direction where they are not pointing at God?”
