Passing the Digital Peace

I'm generally not a fan of social media. I don't usually post much on Facebook—it's much too easy to make folks mad, and I don't have the emotional constitution to deal with that. In my experience, social media platforms seem to facilitate talking past each other rather than fostering real conversations. I often feel like everybody has a soapbox and microphone, and we just shout back and forth. I do, however, love cat videos. Strangely, over the last couple of weeks, I have found more peace, comfort, and encouragement from online video meetings, YouTube chats, Facebook posts, and emails than I could have ever imagined.

Prayers of Love

My dear church family, let me share some news and some thoughts. You may have heard that I have been in the hospital. I was in the coronavirus testing, rule out, and other isolation since Monday night. Spoiler alert - it’s Thursday and I’m home now! I do have some health issues that probably contributed to the symptoms that, along with my compromised immune system, led them to take these measures. Hopefully, things are on a better path now. The Covid-19 test was negative, and assuming it continues to be, I am hopefully on the mend and working on dealing the other health issues that this incident brought to light.

Everything Belongs - Chapter 6

As we close out our reading of Everything Belongs, Rohr kindly brings us back to the beginning.  He uses several images in this chapter to describe this movement back to the Sacred, from thresholds to shadows.  All of his metaphors seem to lead us back to where we started—God's presence in all things.
