Rest

In a market culture we commodify everything: including time. The risk of losing this fundamental rhythm is a-rhythmia.. inability to rest, loss of an essential center, and an increasing drive to find self in our acts rather than in the gift of God. But if we lose the ability to rest, we lose the ability to offer a restful place for others. We lose a listening and attentive heart. As Bonhoeffer put it, “let him who cannot be alone beware of being in community.”
