Patience is that reminder that we are not in control, that our lives do not always happen according to our schedule. The experiences of the prophets, Mary, Joseph, shepherds and Magi remind us that we exist in God’s time. Living in kairos time requires our prayer, our attention and most certainly our patience as we recognize God’s presence, as we allow the Holy Spirit to guide our lives.
All eyes on Canon Mark! This is Canon Mark Stevenson, canon to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry – and very well-deserving of a special gold medal in the Patience department! In charge of all the arrangements for Bishop Lennon Y. R. Chang’s consecration service on February 22, 2020 in St. John’s Cathedral, Taipei, this is him leading the rehearsal the day before. To get to this point we had corresponded in 99 emails (yes 99 – and counting!) and he always answered our questions promptly, kindly and wisely…. Thanks Canon Mark!
