Where is God? Finding God in the moment

 
Friday of 34th week, based on Luke 21:29-33

Then Jesus told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

About Maryanne Thacker, OPL

I am a lay Dominican and member of the St. Mary Magdalene Chapter community in Tempe, AZ. At the present, I am serving as the Formation Director and also enjoy being the Promoter of Formation for the Western Province.

I have meen married to my husband Lee for 44 years. He is retired calling himself a “recovering attorney” I substitute teach at Seton Catholic H.S. on a regular basis. It keeps me busy, thinking and generally out of trouble. Also, makes it possible for me to visit children and grandchildren.

Lee and I visit as often as possible our children, family and friends in Grand Junction, CO, Boston, MA and my home town, Kankakee, IL.

I have an undergraduate degree in education and a masters degree in pastoral theology from Loyola University in Chicago.

I am an avid animal lover, some days liking dogs better than people. Reading, walking and sharing a glass of wine and good conversation with my Dominican sisters and brothers are favorite pastimes.

My good friend and Dominican sister, Karen Woods, convinced me to do this as a way to promote lay Dominicans.

Catherine of Siena, I hope you are listening and willing to assist your lay Dominican sister!!! Thank you.
