Like I told you before I don’t follow sports. Basketball is one I don’t follow simply because I do not play. It isn’t that I don’t like it, it frustrates me cause I cannot make a basket. I had blamed it on coordination but it is that I do not have good depth perception. Thats my story and I am sticking to it.Yet this year I like Loyola. The fact their chaplain is with them is amazing.
Ninety eight years old and sitting on a basketball court in support of her team. Faithfulness and dedication. They have made it to the place they are because to those two things. Her presence is a reminder of that. Sometimes we need that physical presence. But Jesus is more than that.
In a recent crisis I have realized that my presence isn’t about me. It isn’t about how I feel. It is about demonstrating the presence of God. Mouth shut and just there.
