HOW DO YOU TALK TO GOD?
Sit in silence
You can skype with your aunt in the USA, whatsapp your cousin in Australia, and watch your sister in Germany go live on Facebook… all in the same day. You can share what you’re eating, studying, drinking, reading or whether you are on a date, with the entire world. And yet, while you can be in digital contact with 1,000 people at the same time, it can still happen for you not to have one single friend, companion or partner. Jesus said: When you pray, when you speak with your heavenly father, go into your room, lock the door, and sit with him. He was saying, escape the crowd, the loneliness of publicity. Stop. Breathe. You don’t need social media to reach him, or elaborate rituals for him to be impressed and come to hear you. Just talk. Escape the crowd.
