Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks
Our peace in your will.
These lines from T.S. Elliot's poem Ash Wednesday have helped me enormously since I first studied him in the seminary. I don't want to be indifferent. I pray that I will care mightily. At the same time I don't want to be always upset about something beyond me. So I pray to care and not to care and find peace in God's will.
