The Wise Silence


Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, the eternal One.

Raise your words 


Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

Heart and Soul

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

Kindness 

Kindness does wonderful things to a face.
DIXIE DOYLE

To exercise kindness in this time and place is so important. Don’t hesitate. If we reach out with good intentions and compassion seeds are planted. Seeds necessary for survival. 

Peacemaking 


Peacemaking doesn’t mean passivity. It is the act of interrupting injustice without mirroring injustice, the act of disarming evil without destroying the evildoer, the act of finding a third way that is neither fight nor flight but the careful, arduous pursuit of reconciliation and justice. It is about a revolution of love that is big enough to set both the oppressed and oppressors free.

At the light of day- Sunday’s door 


To have lived through the day of silent waiting. No way to tend to their beloved- no work to be done on the Sabbath. The minutes felt like hours, the hours days.

As soon as the sun’s light crested over the horizon these women set out to cleanse his body with fragrant oils and their tears. Mary Magdalene arrived ahead of the others… imagine her surprise to find the tomb was empty.

Peace for the earth and its creatures

Peace for the earth and its creatures
peace for the world and its peoples
peace for our fathers
peace for our mothers
peace for our brothers and sisters.
The peace of heaven’s vastness
the peace of ocean depths
the peace of earth’s stillness
