eagle’s flight – rhythm – 5/19/14

Life’s seasons have an interesting way of uncovering long buried inconvenient truths. Moving from a season full of joy charged with life’s activity, to the fallow, dormant time after harvest can reveal long held assumptions that need some revising. My current season shift has left me feeling unexpectedly lost. And yet even here in this new season I know that I am deeply loved and will be found, again. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – rafting – just like us – 9/17/13

Looking at my own callings, and the clumsy way I grow up into Love. I get discouraged, but find a friend in Simon the fisherman, whom Jesus named Peter. I find, I too learn to see with God’s eyes in fits and starts, but all too often see through my own preconceptions or through the eyes of others who would like to believe the Universe operates as they have made it.
(see especially the story in Matthew 16, Luke 22, and John 21) Continue reading
