Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

Imaginatively reading the biblical text will open us up to connecting with the characters of the stories and with the living God who is revealed through them. Becoming many people through reading this marvelous literature, yet still being oneself is one of the remarkable benefits of imagination. To see with other eyes, hear with other ears, and know with other knowers is a privilege and allows us to go beyond the closed circle of ourselves. Here, we transcend ourselves and are surely more ourselves when we do. Imagination breaks through space and time. When this takes place, we are mysteriously transformed and richly contributed to in luminous ways.
