Not Available to Me

November 16, 2019

Yes, the language is outdated and sexist; but given that, what do you say about the message that’s conveyed here? —

“How would it sound when the question, ‘Can I speak to the minister?’ is not answered by ‘I am sorry, he has someone in his office’ but by ‘I am sorry, he is praying.’

“It says that the minister is unavailable to me, not because he is more available to others, but because he is with God, and God alone — the God who is our God.”

— That’s Henri Nouwen, writing in The Living Reminder. 

I like to know your response.

Thanks in advance, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
