Today’s “Walk in the Light” Theme: “I am not in control.”

I am not in control.

I am not in a hurry. 

I walk in faith and hope.

I greet everyone I meet with peace.

I bring home only what God gives me.

The five lines above are from “The Pilgrim’s Credo” by Father Murray Bodo. I know! We don’t do credos! But as Friend Geoffrey Durham says in The Spirit of the Quakers, instead of creeds, “what Quakers offer is a journey: a voyage of spiritual discovery undertaken with friends.” In that spirit, what Father Bodo offers is a lovely roadmap.

For the next five days, we will encourage a ‘pilgrimage in place’ as part of our IMYM gathering. Coming to IMYM, even by Zoom, is a pilgrimage – a journey of sacred intent to a space and time made holy by the intention of those who gather “here”– including you, your spiritual ancestors, the Children of Light still waiting to join us, and the Spirit that gathers us all. We’ll also be encouraging a bit of physical pilgrimage, a time to get up and away from our screens and “Walk in the Light, wherever you may be.”

Each day’s theme is one line from Father Bodo. “I am not in control,” is a fine place to start our journey together. In a culture obsessed with self, control, and self-control… isn’t this the ultimate statement of faith?

Today’s practice, should you choose to accept it, is to go for a walk.* Picture yourself as a pilgrim on your way to IMYM, this sacred space, ready to let go of some control and many of your daily distractions. What are your intentions? As you walk, try saying Father Bodo’s five lines aloud. What does it mean to say: “I am not in control?”

*    By “walk,” we mean move with intent as we are each differently abled. The point is getting away from the screen, setting aside this moment to move deliberately into sacred space. See you there!
