Reflection for the Week - August 5

There is a marvelous wonder and a profound mystery in committed relationships. The hope of beauty and fear of danger encircle our hearts and challenge us to move forward in love. We wrestle with “letting go” or “holding on,” with “form” or “freedom,” with “suspicion” or “trust.” On the way from an individual to a mutuality of space—shared lives together at different levels of intensity—we are invited into new ways of being, seeing, and living, where the drama of inoffensive possession neither stifles, nor disdains the narrative of oneself or the other.
