Reflections for the Week

Living spirituality is a web of truths that flow out of and back into being in community with God. Take personal evaluation as one of these. Surely, this dimension is interconnected with many others, and is desirable and necessary for developing a deeper interface with God. Our tendencies usually run along these lines. Either we focus way too much on the personal - God and ME, or we ignore it all together – God and THEM. Living the spiritual life – living spirituality, falters without insightful assessment of the past, present, and future, but it is equally impoverished without a personal us in the picture. So goes the tension of life with God, as we work out the varying degrees of community that are appropriate for each context.
