March 15th, Week 1 Meditation: "Cast away from me the spirit of laziness, idle curiosity."
If you have not read the introduction, please read it first before continuing with Week 1.
Let us begin our first week by intentionally NOT doing certain things...laziness and idle curiosity. As we begin each day this week, may our meditation be to avoid laziness and curiosity on things that do not benefit us. I will not fill in the blanks for you regarding what constitutes laziness and idle curiosity as we each will find a dozen things to fill our blanks. Prayerfully, the above throughout the week and intentionally avoiding them, God will open opportunities we may not have considered before. Where are we being 'lazy' throughout the week and where do we find ourselves enticed by 'idle curiosity' (also translated as 'meddling').
I look forward to worshiping with you during tonight's 6pm Compline service, Wednesday's 6pm Pre-Sanctified Liturgy and Friday's 6:30pm Salutations to the Panagia.
Peace and blessings,
