Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

True seeing is not focused on the “seen”, as it is temporary, but on the “unseen” for it is everlasting. There must be a movement from the “seen” to the “unseen” and back to the “seen” in order to truly see. In truly seeing, the eyes are able to correctly focus on the wider context of life and death, which are the central issues of reality. The fragility of life and the tragedy of death are relentless. No one escapes questions of purpose, well being, alienation, and degeneration. But in the end, life overcomes death by going through it, not around it. This is crucifixion and resurrection. Those who choose to participate, then become followers of the Crucified and Risen One. Such a victory and following call for improvisation, creativity, and imagination, as day by day renewal rocks and through this explosion, we begin to find our place in the massive drama of God’s plan to make all things new.
