"There is no limit, no boundaries to when and where you can commune with God. It doesn't have to be in church all the time." Sister Madonna Buder

I saw this story on the ABC Nightly News and loved Sister Madonna's quote. This is a 78 year old nun doing triathalons. A priest suggested she try running for spiritual enrichment and she was a natural runner. She was 47 at the time and now also swims and bikes.

I tried to explain to a non-biking friend how spiritual a solo bike ride can be for me; admiring the beauty of God's creation, reflecting on all the blessings that have been given to me, and letting worries slip away while spinning the pedals. She didn't get it, but Sister Madonna would understand completely.

Church of the Bicycle. Some people get it, some never will.
