With multi-tasking on my mind and it’s supposed usefulness, I found this post written by Father David Ousley, a rector in Philadelphia. Here he reflects on how the practice of multi-tasking in everyday life affects our prayer life - and life in general. He writes:
I have definitely subscribed to the notion that multi-tasking is a good thing, and in my stubborn-ness it will be hard for me to pull myself out of that thinking. But I do acknowledge that I need to work towards single-tasking so I can give my best to any one thing at a time — God, my family, my work, or myself.
Matthew 6:6 The Message
Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simple and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.
In His Name, Janet

So true. I usually have at least 4 programs open, email open, and cell phone all the time. Gulity

Guilty as well! I have read that it actually is impossible to actually multi-task since the brain can only do one thing at a time. But that doesn't stop me from trying. Good reminder, Janet.
