I am alert to the fact that public discourse on morals and values, previous directed so vehemently at our nation’s government, is finally making its way into my faith home at the institutional level.
I am hopeful that my faith will continue deep, courageous learning so the word and deed of faith are not only widespread but especially critically relevant (and discussable).
I am sober to the reality that I will learn the limitations of my own certainty and convictions. I have been in the fertile void before. It feels formless and without beauty.
I am grateful gifts of peace and insight that arrive through the mysteries of time and tide.
May we be the courageous ones to rearrange the furniture of our institutions into circles, not towers; into eco-systems, not ego-systems.
