I want to know why!!!

The disciples in our passage this week want a few more details.  Jesus makes clear that no one knows about the day or the hour…not even angels!  The only thing they can do is stay awake. The reality is that sometimes the time and energy we spend contemplating ‘why’ draws us away from other life-giving things.  Where else could your energy, attention and care be offered?  This is not just redirection, it can wake us up to all kinds of things that God is doing, right here, right now!
