Show Notes  

It was probably couple of years ago that my good friend Terry Hershey brought up an idea that continues to leave me in a state of Wonder. He talked about Loitering in the Moment 

In fact, just a few weeks ago I wrote a blog on the subject and when I was chatting with Terry about doing a new podcast he suggested that be our topic. So here we are, Loitering in the Moment, that is resting in the present moment of a friend-to-friend recorded chat. 

I am happy that you choose to join us today. Happy loitering!

Vocation does not come from willfulness. It comes from listening.” Parker Palmer

Just a couple weekends ago Pam and I attended a 4-day retreat at Richards Rohr’s Center of Action and Contemplation (The CAC). A smaller retreat of 35 attendees were drawn deeply into times of personal reflection, complemented by community transparency and vulnerability.

Yes, we had opportunity to meet Richard and his remarkable leadership staff who now lead and manage the entire ministry of several hundreds of thousands of followers.

I, with most every attendee, walked away sensing a call from the Divine to participate ever more intensely in our own calling, or vocation.

So, with that, I wish to offer you a reading from Parker Palmer that we used for personal contemplation, journaling, and deep group discussion.

Loitering in the Moment

Loitering laws prohibit lingering in a public area without a purpose.” From some legal document somewhere

Once on a podcast, my friend Terry Hershey suggested an antidote to our hectic and demanding days is to spend a bit of time “Loitering in the Moment.” No agenda or objectives; no one with demands on our time; no to-do lists; no place we “have to be.” In other words, “No purpose other than to just loiter.”
