Time-lapse videos capture my attention with their unique take on viewing the passage of the seasons. This one from Norway shows one year of a woodland in two minutes.
Those in catechetical ministry must look at their years with a time-lapse mentality in certain ways. Leaders must attend to daily details while never losing sight of the long-term goals for the year or even further out future. But through all the hustle and bustle, sometimes it’s lovely to sit down and review the long scope, what progress has been made and what the cyclical nature of the liturgical year brings to a given set of program participants. And just rest in the presence of God and time.
