Tilting Towards God:

We had the longest day of the year yesterday. The biggest tilt towards the sun is at this time of year and it is possible to get 17 hours of sunshine in Cork today.

From a spiritual point of view we are always invited to tilt towards God and everything that is good and life giving. We are equally invited to tilt away from negativity, bitterness and darkness. Nature has worked out that balance over millions of years.

The invitation on the longest days of the year is to tilt even a little, to something good and worthwhile in our lives. We remember the words of Jesus: "Come to me all who are weary and overburdened and I will give you rest."
