Help CleanUp > Big Stone Lake Pander UKese The Jesus Prayer has become a marvelous way for me to experi- ence the love of Jesus in my life. Each of us has our own way of re- lating to the Lord and our own favorite prayers or way to pray. As much as we like what we do, we shouldn't make absolutes. Youknow, "You have to pray like this," or "Jesus only loves us." This attitude usually gets us into trouble and we miss the mark. Here is a story from Russia that you might like. A Russian Orthodox bishop was on his way to visit a.monastery. He had to travel by ship. Along the route was an island. He heard ru- mor of three holy hermits living there and decided to pay them a visit. The sight was not pretty. The three men were dressed in rags and had beards down to their knees. But they seemed humble and even bowed before the bishop. "What are you doing to serve God and save your souls?" the bishop asked. "We don't know. We serve and support each other. This is all we know." The bishop noticed that they didn't even know how to pray. All they knew how to do was to lift their arms to the sky and say, "Three are ye, three are we. Have mercy on us." The bishop thought it his duty to at least teach them the Lord's Prayer. The hermits turned out to be slow learners. After.spending i most of the day trying to teach them the prayer, he decided he must leave and continue his journey. He entrusted the hermits to the care of God. As the sun was Setting and the ship was getting underway, the t bishop and all the passengers saw a sight that filled them with awe: ! three men running to catch up to the ship. They were running on the water! "Can you teach us that prayer again? We forgot it," they I shouted. The bishop bowed before the men and crossed himself in awe. "Continue your own prayers. You have no need for further instruc- tion. Go back home and pray for me." With that, the hermits n.odded and smiled and returned to their little island. It is said that until day- break, a light continued to shine on the spot where they were lost to sight. This is a good story for our times and our culture. The Russian bishop taught truth but was wise enough to see something greater. Many in our culture claim to have the "truth." But how wise are they? Can they so much as describe to me the scent of a rose so precisely that I could not confuse it with any other scent? Describe God's love so precisely that I could not confuse it with anything else. Describe God. Can you do it? If you use words, you will fail. I will get confused. This is the value of praying without words and using meditation and listening to your heart. Prayers like the Jesus Prayer cah bring you to your heart so you can experience Jesus in a new and deeper way. Of course, it may not be for you. But, you 11 never know ntil you try. Richard Rohr puts it nicely, "Faith is a journey into darkness, into not knowing." If it concerns God or religion, we can prove nothing. This is the na- ture of faith. "God cannot be grasped with the mind, only embraced with the heart," says the Cloud of Unknowing, a classic on praying ,vithout words from the 14th Century. It is one of my favorite book J / i Stop by for more about praye  'Until next'week, may the peace of the Lord be with you f : Prairie Five menu Reservations may be made by call- ing the Senior Center.
