Fellowship of Heretics Daily Devotional: August 11-Solitude



Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

As we close out our summer of focus on “being,” as we end our time of solitude to engage with a broken world, the challenge is maintaining the sweetness of that time in the midst of the crowd.

Today’s Action: Today, when you find yourself with others — in the midst of a crowd, in a meeting, waiting in line — close your eyes, focus your breath and for just a few seconds, go to your place of solitude.
