The intersection

There are many places where my vocation as a creative artist and my vocation as clergy intersect but I think the place where they are closest (where the veil is thinnest, if you will) is in taking the time.

Taking the time to reflect.
Taking the time to craft.
Taking the time to study.
Taking the time to just sit and wait.

If you don't allow yourself the time, if you let yourself get caught up in the "busy-ness," you will never find the place where you can create.  If you let yourself get caught up in the "busy-ness" of  "doing" religion, you will not find the place where God is. 

(Sorry about the cross-sermonizing but it's what you get from bi-vocational people)
