“When was the last time you did something for the first time?” This quote was on the wall of a restaurant where I recently ate lunch with two of my sisters in community. It prompted an interesting and sometimes funny conversation!
Later, as I pondered this conversation, it led me into a deeper recollection of “first times” … as well as “last times” in my life. The first time I drove a car; the first time I visited Assisi, Italy...The last time I visited my grade school before it closed; the last time I spoke with my Mother… and so on. It was a wonderful way to contemplate a life review.
So, I ask you…When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Give yourself a few minutes to think about this. You may be happy or even surprised by your answers. Use it as a prompt the next time you’re with family or friends. You may learn something new about them.
That is how we sometimes look at the programs we offer at Tau Center. Many of our participants may be learning something for the first time, or trying a new form of prayer or practice that deepens their spiritual lives.
As we approach our Fall season, our program guide offers you a variety of spiritual offerings by new presenters, along with some returning friends and familiar practices.
Whether you come to try something new or join us again to deepen and enrich a practice you’ve already begun – We Welcome You and invite you to ponder the holy, the new, and the Divine.
May the Lord Give You Peace,
Sr. Glenna Czachor
Tau Center Director

Let us endeavor to integrate the contemplative life and the active life, so that the active life is nourished and strengthened and supported through the contemplative and thus itself becomes rich in blessings.– Mother Clara Pfaender, foundress of the Franciscan Sisters Daughters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary (Congregation of the Wheaton Franciscans)
