I have no idea where all these wires go to in my church office! One of these days I should trace them all to their source, but for now I’m content to know that my computer works and the phone rings. When did life get so complex? However did our ancestors survive without multiple cords? I’m sure there’s a metaphor here for connection to others and how it’s important to be in touch, but I wonder if we need to do this all the time. Perhaps that day of rest thing is more important than we know. Disconnecting once a week lets our spirit refresh and calm down from the multitasking world. It forces us to connect with people face to face and that’s a good thing. Thanks, God.
