instead of embracing an alternative reality This is Thursday of Week 3 of the Richard Rohr meditations that I’m following this year. This statement stood out to me: “In fact, religion is often the easiest place to hide from God.” Based on my personal experience and my observations of others (including lay people and clergy), this is true. It’s common to follow all the rules of a religion. It’s less common to make an intimate connection with the divine.
Spread Love in 2018 For 2018, I’ve decided to follow Fr. Richard Rohr’s daily meditations. I invite you to follow along with me by subscribing at the Center for Action and Contemplation. The theme for this year is “Image and Likeness:” Over the course of this year’s Daily Meditations, discover opportunities to incarnate love in your unique context by unveiling the Image and Likeness of God in all that you see and do. This is my favorite quote from today’s meditation: God loves us center to center. Happy New Year!
