Overcoming the Gap

The Holiness of Human Sexuality Overcoming the Gap Sunday, June 6, 2021 Incarnation is the overcoming of the gap between God and everything visible and concrete. It is the synthesis of matter and spirit. Without incarnation, God remains separate from us and from creation. Because of incarnation, we can say, “God is with us!” In… Continue Reading Overcoming the Gap

Unity with the Spirit

Oneness Unity with the Spirit Wednesday, May 26, 2021 While we have the language of philosophy, psychology, modern science, and sociology to describe the truth of universal interconnectedness, the mystics first described it based on their own experience. In this meditation, African American mystic and scholar Howard Thurman (1899‒1981) reminds us of how our love… Continue Reading Unity with the Spirit

Our Faith Is in Community

Oneness Our Faith Is in Community Monday, May 24, 2021 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. (Romans 8:16–17) We’re… Continue Reading Our Faith Is in Community

We Turn Around One Thing

Oneness We Turn Around One Thing Sunday, May 23, 2021 Pentecost Sunday Unity is not the same as uniformity. Unity, in fact, is the reconciliation of differences, and those differences must be maintained. We must actually distinguish things and separate them, usually at a cost to ourselves, before we can spiritually unite them (Ephesians 2:14‒16).… Continue Reading We Turn Around One Thing

Mystical Holism

All Will Be Well Mystical Holism Friday, April 9, 2021 I am convinced that the Gospel offers us a holistic understanding of salvation. If we understand the resurrection as a universal phenomenon, we can see this idea everywhere in Pauline passages, expressed in different ways. Here are some examples: “in that one body he condemned… Continue Reading Mystical Holism

A Presence That Continues

Communion of Saints A Presence That Continues Thursday, March 11, 2021 Theresa Torres’ description of receiving her faith through her grandmother is a wonderful reflection of how faith was once passed down generation to generation. Her grandmother, or abuelita, inspires spirituality not as a religious creedal statement or morality code, but as a healing and… Continue Reading A Presence That Continues

Our Common Heritage

Interspiritual Mysticism Our Common Heritage Friday, September 25, 2020 Today’s meditation continues with reflections from interspiritual mystic Bede Griffiths who I introduced yesterday. I invite you to read his words with an open mind and heart. It is only today that these different religious traditions are beginning to mix freely all over the world and… Continue Reading Our Common Heritage

Engaged Love

Interspiritual Mysticism Engaged Love Tuesday, September 22, 2020 While interspirituality is not for the faint of heart, or for dabblers who merely want to appropriate the clothing, language, or customs of other faiths, sharing in the spiritual heart of a different religious tradition can be a genuine vocation, bringing much needed peace and healing to… Continue Reading Engaged Love

Repairing and Restoring

Order, Disorder, Reorder: Part Three Repairing and Restoring Thursday, August 27, 2020 Barbara Holmes, a member of our Living School faculty, writes about what I’m calling Reorder as a cosmological fact. When we return to the original Order—the unbroken unity of all of creation with and in God—with new eyes, we see the gifts of… Continue Reading Repairing and Restoring
