Recently a student of mine signed up to go on an exchange program trip in which he would spend two weeks attending school in a different part of the country, thousands of miles away. His request raised some eyebrows among his teachers because, to put it politely, he is extremely laid back and uninvolved. But I sent him anyway.
As I was reflecting on my uninvolved student I suddenly thought “What does God think of my approach to living the gospel and to prayer?” Does God the Father sometimes say to his Son, “Can you suggest ways that we might try to get Albert more involved? He seems very distant and unconnected.”
