The limits of your love

September 10th, 2015

Perhaps the summer has shown I can follow the path, I will walk with God and others, to the places that God would have me be.


Context

September 2nd, 2015

How different is it now when water and blood drop from headless corpses strung from colonnades built millennia ago? When refugees wash up drowned on our shores, or fall out of sealed four wheeled tombs?


Living within the systems and spheres of operation

May 11th, 2015

I believe that God, present in this world, informs many human beings in diverse ways. I do not hold on to notions that God only speaks through the Christian voice. I give thanks for the myriad operating systems and spheres in which people operate, that gives life to the reality that the divine is present and active in this world which we inhabit.


Take, O Take Me As I Am

April 29th, 2015

I believe we are called to live and respond as spiritual people in this world, and for me that means living my life according to the baptismal promises. This at times requires me to respond as a mirror, and reflect the faith of the church community back to the world. Other times this requires me to respond as a window, so that others can see through me, the presence of Jesus.

April 9th, 2015
