Praying the Creed: 5

How important is a name?  It is our identity.  In a roomful of chattering teachers we will hear and pick out our name mentioned above other words.  When people we admire call us by name it gives us a lift.  When we receive letters or e-mails or cards even notes addressed to us it makes us feel wanted, special.  It builds up a relationship between ourselves and the one addressing us.

Praying the creed 3

We are made of aware of the passage of time in the media and just within our own bodies.    The flashing light on the screen indicates how long I’ve spent being constructive or wasting time on solitaire games.  My body tells me that it has been too long since I ate, or exercised or slept.  The grey hairs and wrinkles indicate the passage of time however much I may want to deny them.
