‘God is always calling’

‘In faith we believe that every event, from the birth of a child to the death of a parent, is meaningful. Every encounter, from a passing meeting with a friend to an exhange of marriage vows, gives form to our existence. Every experience, from dressing for work in the morning to writing a position paper, blends together harmoniously in the story of our life. … This divine formation of each life is an enigma. We can only rest in the faith that God is always calling. He never ceases to whisper his direction through the filter of seemingly unrelated incidents, choices and events — the claptrap of daily life that constitutes the harassed existence of lay Christians in the world.’

Susan Muto and Adrian van Kaam, Commitment: Key to Christian Maturity, New York: Paulist Press, 1989, 9.
