Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today - June 20

Recently, on a hike through the Swiss Alps nearby our chalet, I was struck again not only by the beauty, but also by the problematic of perception. Winding my way up the mountain side I kept reflecting on how at different points in the walk perceptions change, yet the goal to get to the top of the mountain remains the same. Being in community with God, I believe, has some inviting similarities. When we are in a particular place in the journey, life appears to be one way, but then a different vista opens up and as we go further we see more than we did before. Gradual climbing and clawing our way along can be arduous, but new perceptions invite us to continue on the path towards our destiny of being transformed into the image of Christ and seeing God face to face.
