Living Spiritual Rhythms - July 27

Our reading strategies for the biblical text, self, other, and nature should have a similarity. That is, not too objective, nor too subjective. These phenomena are not to be mere objects of analysis and study or simply personal subjects of possession and interest, but to be understood as related and distinct in tension. Falling into compartmentalized or collapsing approaches leads to a short circuiting of making necessary tensional connections that will enhance and deepen our spirituality. These sorts of connections will help us to recognize that there are new possibilities and fresh discoveries that pave the way for better readings, and thus for living truth and love out into the world.
