Do the good that God sets in front of you. Give a co-worker a lift… help with the dishes… yes… little things like that are more important than “witnessing”. As the late Fr Vladimir at J’ville (the last real elder there… he died in the 80s, I think) used to say, “Dear one, your life is a sermon. Whether it’s good or bad is up to you”. I think that sums it all up. It IS in your hands (it’s NOT just a political slogan)… you can choose to do the actual good in front of you, or you can choose to chase notional will o’ the wisps that you’ll never catch or never really apprehend. I’ve chosen to do what’s in front of me. We’re Christians; that’s what we do…
