“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” –Soren Kierkegaard
Each day is scattered with invitations to listen and pay attention: to our lives and the stories of who we are; and to the way God is present and the Spirit is moving through our days. As our listening deepens, we’ll find invitations to love and be loved, to walk gently and with kindness, and to discover both God and our truest selves in the process.
As both a spiritual director and writer, my hope is to help others notice and respond to these invitations in their own lives.
For the month of October, I am on the lookout for words of compassion and love. I want to cultivate compassion in my heart, as my act of hopeful resistance to the discord leading up to our election. I’ll be sharing by email. These emails aren’t quite daily, but I do send them most days. Some days the words are all my own, but most often I’m sharing something I read that touched me deeply. I’d love for you to join me.
