I’ve been trying to live more intentionally. Partially this is coming from a Spirituality for Ministry paper I’m doing, and partly is simply the fruit of the journey and spiritual adventure that I’m on, especially as I head toward my ordination as Deacon in November.
Part of my discipline is to be observant of the passing of time in my own life. My calendar tells me that today I am 12,237 days old. The act of watching the numbers clock onward helps me to examine (and examen) each day.
Perhaps that’s why I found this video so evocative. The guy counts from one to 100,000. It takes him 77 hours. (To be honest, I’m pretty jealous of his initiative and sticking power.)
