Quote: RALPH WALDO EMERSON
In truth, the heart must crack open if the soul is to become free.
And you simply cannot think your way into that.

A natural doorway. Obviously important as it is shaped with a vision for its purpose.
The path is intricate and beautiful – announcing intention as one approaches.
What doorways do you enter that call for preparation before stepping through its threshold?
sometimes the path goes dark and silent.
do we turn and run… or push ahead seeking light on the other side?

The light shifts from warm to cool.
Standing before an open doorway, we know the choice has been made and made again.
Can any one prepare for what a day might bring?
Maybe but it is always challenging to plan for how it will feel and the consequences at the day’s end.
May we walk this day present to each moment.

Holy Week is filled with stories. How easy it can be to think these are stories from long ago.
The olive tree, the olive branch… symbols of peace – then and now.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for the peace of Syria… pray for peace.

We are on the edge of Holy Week – a week in the Christian tradition filled with many doorways and transitions. If this is a journey you take each year, notice all of the doors of this coming week. Consider the choices made each day, each hour — which thresholds would be entered by Jesus and all the people surrounding him.
Doorways and thresholds- facing risk and grace.
