St. Nicholas Episcopal Church of Kapolei Hawaii has held "Covenant Group" meetings for about 10 years. These groups meet weekly for fellowship, prayer and reflection on the readings and the sermon from the previous week. This blog is an attempt to offer the prayer and reflection as an on-going basis. The challenges of schedules and more prevent many members from participating in our groups, perhaps this will allow for additional participation. I will post readings and questions - please answer the questions and contribute as you're comfortable in the comment sections. Blessings

Look - Margins

There is a saying:  “nature abhors a vacuum” – which means if there’s empty space (or “margin”), somehow it’s going to get filled up.  An empty room in the house seems to magically collect items until it’s filled to the brim.  The free hour you have in the morning gets sucked up by watching the morning news – and so on!

1.         Can you recall a time when you consciously felt you had extra margin in your life?  What caused that space in your schedule? 
2.         How long did it take for that space in your schedule to get filled up – or did it actually stay free space?

3.         Do you consciously try to keep some free time (or “margin”) in your daily schedule?  Why?
