Living Spiritual Rhythms–May 28

Lack of commitment seems to permeate the landscape of our culture. Fleeting choices of communication and knowledge allow us to play freely with others. We’re all too frequently motivated or even controlled by a fear of promise, pledge, and obligation. Hurt, rejection, and the risk of being loved combine to re-enforce the notion that death reigns, and we may find ourselves sucked into the vortex of a web of lies. A call for sacrifice may strike us as unattractive. Trust of self and other appears a chimera. Yet, part of a radically transforming work of truth in us is to heighten the level of commitment to God, self, other and world, and to that which is good.
