Daily Poll: Are you present?

The Daily Catch - published on 12/12/16

Todd Worner writes in today about being present in day to day life. We’ve all seen the crowds of people who would rather view an event through the little screen on their phone, to enjoy the experience later rather than in person.

During this season of renewal, this season Advent, be quiet. Turn off the TV, put away the iPhone, silence the radio, find a place alone… and just be in the presence of God. At first, it will be daunting, overwhelming, even deafening in its silence. But before long, you will feel the stillness. And it will give you comfort. You will sense the opening of a broad and sacred fertile ground where you and God can just talk. Talk about your day. Talk about your family. Voice your fears. Confess your shortcomings. Shake your fist. Give him your thanks. Tell him you’ll try harder. Just talk. And He will answer, but you must pay attention… close attention. In minutes or years, in ways simple and ways unimaginable, He will answer.

With this in mind we would like to ask…
