Reflection for the Week - October 31

Finding shelter in our world from the vacuous and inconsequential is harder and harder to do; the rhythm of trite leaves us exposed to a devaluing of heart, mind, and imagination. Rapid-fire rhetoric captures the air waves and infiltrates our capacity to think clear and true thoughts that can be lived. In contrast to this woeful meltdown, the critical adventure remains an essential component to chasten naïveté and to promote the virtuous life of following in the footsteps of Christ. Engage, critique, embrace―the Infinite One, other, and world; the power of this trinity offers us a real, yet challenging haven of relationality; the space to dwell in oneself as another.
