The Slow Work of God

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.  We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.  We would like to skip the intermediate stages.  We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.  And yet, it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability - and that it may take a very long time.  Above all, trust in the slow work of God, our loving vine-dresser.

- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Thanks for this, Mary Beth. It fits very well with what I posted on my blog today.
