Be still and know

Ruben Chupp retired from full-time pastoral ministry after 28 years and now serves as an on-call chaplain at Goshen Health. He offers spiritual direction and works at two local funeral homes, as needed. He attends Sunnyside Mennonite Church in Dunlap, Indiana


I breathe in and out, on each two word line:

Be still

and know

that I

am God.

(Psalm 46:10)


As I think about that, one thought leads to another, until there is this:


Right here

Right now:

God is present,

Jesus is present,

the Holy Spirit is present.


All shall be well.  Eventually.  Somehow.
