WHERE THE EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS
There is not an exclusive place where the extraordinary happens. It may happen anywhere. Still, it seems to me, some places offer more opportunity than others. As in the beauty of the forest, the sea, the desert, the garden, the flowers, the trees, out among cows and horses, an afternoon with a lazy dog, or sitting by a river.
We also know that we may be in these places and nothing extraordinary happens. Time spent habitually in early prayer, meditation, solitude, silence and brokenness offers as good an opportunity for the extraordinary as experiencing a double waterfall or an autumn spectacle of Aspens. But nothing may happen there either. Place, position and environment are not always the agents for the extraordinary.
The extraordinary becomes simply hearing, seeing, and knowing the voice of God, the way of God, the why of God. We become partakers of mutual understanding of the way of the kingdom. That is extraordinary. It may happen anywhere, anytime.
