Living Spiritual Rhythms - January 29

Feeling lost. Turning to doubt, suspicion, and fear of rejection, instead of the content of the biblical text and the living God represented by it, interpersonal checks and balances, the other, and the natural world, will have severe drawbacks for regaining a holistic equilibrium. In our context today there is a tremendous need for a greater degree of objectivity in our subjectivity. There has to be someone or something to pry us away from the force of our self-focused monologue and into the challenging adventure of dialogue. We may find this enterprise uncomfortable, as we’re so familiar with monologue, but the radically uncomfortable will lead us in the direction of true comfort, as we find our way along one step at a time.
