Take time to center

Query for eleventh month, 2014

The silence gives me time to center, sometimes using a few simple words, sometimes watching the play of sunlight on the floor.  In the silence, I may simply go over what needs to be done for the week, or focus on concerns for friends, or worry through a problem.  In the silent worship, space is there to hold these all up to God.

When sitting in worship, what topics do you think about?  Pray about? And hold up to God?
