Christian mystics of our time - and of past times - understand that they are called to live simply. We have so much capacity to live more simply - and to share our abundance with others. Technology alllows us to see the hurt and suffering in far away places - and to do something meaningful about it. We can give to a cause this very minute - and do so by living more simply in the moment. When we do, we follow the great mystics of the past that loved life not for the things it provided but for the people they could serve. If our Triune Lord is in all and of all, then most certainly we can serve our Lord by humble simplicity and service.
