Whose Time is it Anyway?
3954

"We all experience time, and we all get to the future, but when we're only focused on the future as something that needs to be attained, then we're failing to live in this present moment." That's an episode quote from Sister Natalia. This week we're talking about time, the poverty of time in the monastic life, and watching the way we spend our time. We're joined this week by Talka (Natalia).
