Our retreat guide for this weeks asks us to compile something of a “Who’s Who?” of people who have influence in our lives, specifically from the perspective that we’ve been exploring the past few weeks. As we’ve seen God working in the events that come to our memory (the photo album or slide show of our past, brought in some way into the present in our imagination), and as we thank God for both the details and the big picture, now we look at those people through whom God has worked in us. Who are the people who have gotten the right balance in their lives, and in some ways have inspired me? They could be saints or others whom we know only through biography or reputation. They can also be people who were a significant part of our past, or of our present. The Grace we pray for this week says it all: To have a growing gallery of images of inspiring people who live in praise, reverence and service for God. For my own reflections as the week progresses, go my “Fourth Week” post on the blog.
