|A Prayer Diary
“What is your favorite project?” was today’s question posed by Br. Curtis Almquist from the Society of St. John the Evangelist’s Lenten on-line series. Fine, I think, I have projects, in fact I’m a project person. But Br. Curtis went on to express the value of projects with closure, such as bread making, versus on-going projects such as relationships. This idea of projects with closure startled me because one of the things I like to do, one of my projects shall I say, is to visit the elderly and the dying. I find deep satisfaction when I sit with someone during their last days of life. Our relationship has unique, immediate closure.
