Thanks for stopping in. Pour yourself a cup o' jo, take a load off your feet, and check out what's here. You are looking at my ramblings about issues of faith, life and culture—they are my own and are not necessarily shared by those with whom I work, live or otherwise engage.

My journey has led my family and me across the country where I have been introduced to a lot of people and a lot of different ways of doing things. One passion, though, runs through all these experiences: building beloved and sustainable community. "Sustainable" community is kind of a strange notion, as communities (people) change constantly, and things are always in motion. So, the latest chapter of my life has led me to the notion of "impermanence"—not an idea that comes naturally in a culture that likes to build monuments to our greatness for future generations to view and admire. But, I'm trying to practice my awareness of impermanence—the idea that nothing is permanent, nothing is forever, and things are always in flux.

Feel free to share your comments and engage in any conversation that may be happening here, but just know that I do reserve the right to delete any spam or anything I deem inappropriate or offensive. I look forward to dialoguing with anyone who cares to dialogue!

Peace and blessings,

The of Love Over Ego and Sin

If you don’t subscribe to Fr. Richard Rohr’s daily meditation email, I highly recommend it. I don’t get to read it every day, but it is a a wonderful resource drawn from his decades of studying and practicing the more contemplative side of Christian life and action. He is the founder and director of the Center for Contemplative Action in New Mexico—the idea that the contemplative life draws us to behave, live, and act in certains ways in harmony with God’s vision for humanity and creation.

I woke up early Saturday morning, fed the dogs, re-heated a cup of coffee, and sat down to read the news and some of my subscription emails. He writes a lot about love. I was told not too long ago by a member of my congregation that they noticed I seem to preach about love a lot—I took it as a compliment. Love seems to be the most written about topic in both our Hebrew and Christian scriptures. I think that means it’s something we should be paying closer attention to. It probably also means it is the hardest thing for we humans to grasp. Leonard Sweet says that “I love you” are the three hardest words to get right.

One phrase in Fr. Rohr’s meditation caught my attention and grabbed me by the collar in the most forcefully loving way I could imagine. So, I did what any social-media savvy Gen-Xer would do…I turned it into a meme very appropriate for Advent and posted it on Facebook. But, I offer here again, worthy of our consideration as continue to contemplate the reality of God’s breaking into our hearts, into our lives, into our world:
