I write, speak, invest, network, and question to stimulate fruitful conversation. Let's talk about human flourishing! It begins with freedom. Holy leisure is the key to human being, freedom and generativity. Please join me in the adventure of realizing Christ!
How could I be spiritually ‘dehydrated’?
Just as the body gets dehydrated for lack of water, the soul suffers for lack of a constant flow of grace. It’s easy to get busy and ignore the need for water until symptoms appear that are our body’s signals that it is working hard to deal with the problem. These self-defense mechanisms can lead to real harm to the body if they continue too long. The need for the presence of water at the cellular level begins before even the symptom of thirst.
Reason must propel us to seek water, as it must move us to seek the grace of God, even before we ‘notice’ we are needy.
How is a community like a snowflake?
It takes two to get started! Some small ‘speck of dust’ (like a book to share, or a service project to do together) helps them stick together in a way that attracts others to join up. Our unity, in the name of Christ – His presence wherever two or more gather in His name – is the start-up stickiness for some glorious new snowflakes of friendship and community.
