30 Days of Touching

Day 24: Juggling

Have you ever tried to juggle? I have—without success. I just don’t have the coordination to keep multiple balls in the air. I would imagine if I did, I would learn that juggling requires a very special touch—a light touch, as you catch one ball and throw it up before you catch another.

Though I don’t juggle balls, I do feel like I often juggle many other things. Today I felt that way. It was my first day as the part-time Spiritual Formation Director at White River Christian Church in Noblesville. In addition, I am also a consultant with The Indianapolis Center for Congregations and juggle the balls of writing and speaking.

Questions to ponder: How can I keep my touch light? How can I stay focused on the ball in my hand? How can I let go when I need to? Those are the questions on my mind tonight. Do you find yourself doing a lot of juggling? Maybe those are questions for you, too.
