o taste and see that the Lord is Good
“I will bless the Lord at all times, His name shall be continually in my mouth” (Psalm 34:1)
“Man is a hungry being. But he is hungry for God.
Behind all of the hunger of our life is God.
All desire is finally a desire of our life for Him.
To be sure, man is not the only hungry being.
All that exists lives by “eating”.
The whole creation depends on food.
But the unique position of man in the universe is that he alone is to “bless” God for the food and the life he receives from Him.
He alone is to respond to God’s blessing with his blessing.”
Father Alexander Schmemman
Friends, o taste and see that the Lord is good!
We nourish the very depth of our being when we praise God and give thanks for the day, our family and friends, our trials and every success and inviting Christ as the very foundation of our lives!
