let it bePosted: August 9, 2011
Following up on yesterday's reflection, it occurred to me that one way to practice looking for God’s presence is to "let it be."
A few years ago I mentioned here how Anne Lamott wrote that she would wear a pendant of the Virgin Mary, even though she is a Protestant who attends a predominately African-American Presbyterian church. Doing so reminds her to "let it be."
If you know the music of the Beatles you understand how she gets from point A to point B. (Yes, I know Paul McCartney was really referring to his own mother who was named Mary, but that's not the association that's made in popular culture.)
I'm glad I saw Rose is Rose on Sunday to remind me of this. Something I can really use right now. Remembering to let it be.
