Ron Rolheiser writes about our hurried lives

Haste is our enemy. It puts us under stress, raises our blood pressure, makes us impatient, renders us more vulnerable to accidents and, most seriously of all, blinds us to the needs of others. Haste is normally not a virtue, irrespective of the goodness of the thing toward which we are hurrying.

This morning’s Prairie Messenger included a wonderful article by Ron Rolheiser about the pros and cons of living our hurried lives. It’s titled Always in a hurry means stepping over the important people in our lives.

I’m posting it with more than a tad of irony and twinge of guilt. Anyone note the lack of posts lately? Hubby has a great saying in his arsenal of wisdom, “the hurrier I get, the behinder I am”. Sigh…

  1. Hi Kurt! It’s good to hear from you, as always. When I first learned about acedia it was a groaner moment. Dang! I have that! But I was too lazy to do anything about it. 😉
