Seek God Where He May be Found

25th Sunday of Ordinary Time (A)

The first reading for this Sunday’s Mass begins, “Seek God while he may be found” (Is 55:6). When I first glanced at this reading in preparation for my Sunday reflection, I misread it as, “Seek God where he may be found.” I quickly noticed my mistake, but thought my initial misread offered an interesting consideration. If we are to seek God, where should we look for him?

In this week’s reflection, I explore both questions: where and when should we seek God?
