Reading: Psalm 104: 24-34, 35b (Click to read text)
I’ve recently heard more about meditation and how it can help individuals lead a more balanced life. Dan Harris, an ABC News person, recently wrote about a book called “10 Percent Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head” about meditation helped him overcome some anxiety problems after he had an on-air panic attack. He claims that meditation can make you happier.
But how can we make meditation meaningful? I think meditation works well when you think of it theologically. For instance, time spent in meditation could be time spent reflecting on three things:
I admit I’m not one who often takes time to stop, be quiet, and meditate. But the more I read about it and hear how it changes lives, the more I think there is value in that practice. Maybe Dan Harris is right- meditation can make you ten percent happier! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
