Without a doubt, we are living through a strange, uncertain, and fearful time in history. Perhaps we did not create the COVID virus, but if we are being honest, humanity is certainly responsible for its rapid-fire spread. As a result, this fluctuating, alien virus has forced us all to confront the way we have been living our lives. We have had no choice but to slow down, contemplate, listen, revise, and simplify. Simplify. The people of Nineveh cast off their worldly goods and dressed themselves in simple sack cloth. For many people today the loss of income, inability to travel, social restrictions and forced seclusion have created a “sack cloth” of necessary simplicity around us. Spirituality in all forms asks us to reexamine our values and beliefs, to recommit to those things we know intrinsically to be right and good, and I know that I can no longer excuse myself from this task by saying I have too many things on my plate—my life has been simplified without my direct permission. I have the time—I am wearing the sack-cloth—‘tis the season for reflection.
