The Chaplain's Corner

The Chaplain's Corner

Ubiquity–the state of being everywhere at the same time–was once an attribute predicated only of God (and old episodes of "Law and Order").

Cell phones, pagers, beepers, Blackberries, texts and tweets may not make us mere mortals ubiquitous, but they have conspired to make us ubiquitously available: people can reach us anywhere at any time.

Solitude, therefore–already a rare and precious thing–has become yet more elusive.

Even when physically alone, we are surrounded by a buzzing, chirping digital swarm.

"For God alone my soul in silence waits," sang the psalmist.

All of those digital devices have on-off switches.

Use them to create some soulful silence and know the presence of the genuinely ubiquitous One.
