1Thing4Me

1ThingMeIf I could only share one thing with myself (over and over and over),  it would be this:

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Being willing is not enough, we must do.

Leonardo da da Vinci

To quote another wisdom figure, Yoda instructed “Do, or do not. There is no ‘try.’” 

I relish small moments of not doing, embrace them actually!  But, my life is constructed of lists, each item with an urgency of doing.  I can’t contemplate a book or blog post; a film or show, a moment captured in art or memory without attempting to grasp the meaning and implications upon which action must be taken (another item for the to do list)

Faith is not about knowing or willingness or even trying… but about doing.

What would be your one thing that you remind yourself about on a consistent basis?

D. Scott Miller

D. Scott Miller is the dean of Catholic Youth Ministry bloggers which is a polite way of either saying that he is just plain old or has been blogging for a long time (since 2004.)

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.

He has previously served on the parish, regional, diocesan, and national levels as well as having taught within a catholic high school. He is one of the founders of RebuildMyChurch and has returned to posting regularly (keeping regular is important to old guys) at ProjectYM.
