2-Minute Multiplier: In-Person
Tomorrow is our annual Property Owners Association meeting. POA for short.
I’m the secretary. It’s my job to ensure people can participate virtually.
Zoom account set up. Microphone and stand ready. Extra computer for whoever’s speaking. Proper pass-through settings on H6 recorder turned on so those not present can hear.
Correct sign-on link emailed to all voters. Instructions on how to log on and troubleshoot. And a request that people log on early so that we can start on time.
When we add distance but still want to hear and see, two-way communication takes work. It’s exhausting to make it easy.
Many people I talk with think communicating with God is difficult. They’re not sure where to begin. Uncertain what to say. Or not say.
Is it ok to share anger? Disappointment? What about worries? Can I tell God I’m worried?
Won’t He be disappointed I don’t have more faith or think He’s not handling things like I think He should? Does He really want to hear about my little gripes? Or first-world problems? Or tiny celebrations that brought a ton of joy to my day?
Answer the question by pretending you’re the parent. How and when would you like to hear from your child? Only when things are going well? Only when they’re happy and rocking along?
The parent’s heart loves the whole child. Challenges and achievements. Beautiful and ugly. Victories and failures.
It aches when they ache. Laughs when they laugh. And counts it joy to be included in their life.
To be allowed in.
It’s not hard to communicate with your Father. Just start talking. Whatever you feel the need to share. Whatever you need. Whatever.
He’s always listening. No need for technology.
