Finding God in everyday life…

Our daily lives are often very full. Full of projects and deadlines. Full of household chores and to-do lists. Full of people to meet and places to be. Full of messages awaiting replies and last-minute messages: “Can I have a lift please?”

Our daily lives might feel full of too much time on our hands, full of hopes we would like to fulfil or full of things we don’t want to face. Where is God in our daily lives? In this fullness can we see God’s hand? Can we see how God is working through us?

In the Church Year, the period between Pentecost, at the end of Easter, and the Feast of Christ the King, in November, is known as Ordinary Time. At this time, we explore the question: Where is God in our ordinary, everyday life?

We will be journeying with Victoria, a hairdresser, Mike, a police officer, and, on the buses, a couple called the Trenemans. These stories feature in a new booklet from LICC: The one about… 8 stories about God in our everyday – just with a few names changed.

Each week, we will gain an insight into how Victoria, Mike, Gary and Amahle have discovered more of God in their lives. Through the stories and reflections, and by starting and ending each day with prayers of invitation and reflection, our journey will be to find and share our own One about… to consider where God is in our everyday life.

Visit the #EverydayFaith website to use the two prayers written to help start and end the day, seeking to meet God in everyday life.

“He [Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in Him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He himself is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:15-17 (NRSV)
