Here is another reflection from Anthony de Mello
 For some background, check the posting in this Blog for Nov 25, 2011 One Minute Wisdom
Before reading it take a moment and list, 
either on paper or in your mind, 
all the Biblical references to “rivers”.
 In Genesis we start with the rivers in Eden, we end in Revelation with the River of Life and between .... .
“Recognition”  p100
As the Master grew old and infirm 
the disciples begged him not to die. 
Said the Master, “If I did not go how would you ever see?”
“What is it we fail to see when you are with us?” they asked.
But the Master would not say.
When the moment of his death was near 
they said, “What is it we will see when you are gone?”
With a twinkle in his eye the Master said,
 “All I did was sit on the riverbank 
handing out river water. 
After I’m gone I trust you will notice the river.”
For your personal reflection I’d suggest holding your list of rivers prayerfully.
Might you see any of them in today's events? 
What might you do today to drink from the River of Life we find in Christ?
