Kelly proposes that any act of kindness, no matter how small, is a "holy moment". He says that whenever we reach out to another person, we make that moment holy.
Definition of holy
a: having a divine quality holy love
b: venerated as or as if sacred holy scripture; a holy relic
This where you come in.
Did someone in the drive-thru pay for your morning coffee?
Has a co-worker stayed late to help you finish a project?
Perhaps you've taken a meal to a new mom.
Or maybe you mowed the senior neighbor's grass after mowing your own.
Those are holy moments!
Now for the experiment: what if we seek the opportunities that hide all around us to INTENTIONALLY show kindness to others in our worlds?
May I share an example?
Tom and I are starting the process of downsizing. I've been making weekly donation trips to Goodwill. It's easy to see that it can be hot, dirty work. And yet, the young men working there have always been helpful and gracious.
They've kicked off our Holy Moment Experiment. This week, along with the donation, I included bakery-fresh cookies. Now I'm seeking someone else to share a holy moment with.
Dear Reader, will you join me in the experiment? I would love it if you would take a few minutes each week to share your favorite holy moment(s) here at Hide & Seek Holy Moments each Wednesday. Accountability and accolades among friends is great, but not the purpose.
Wouldn't it be great if while we're seeking holy moments we had a cache of ideas of how to fulfill them? What do you say, Dear Reader, are you up to turning your random acts of kindness into holy moments?
