I’m well along in the process of writing a book. I’ll include a few excerpts from it in my email/blog. Here’s the Introduction, and an annotated table of contents.

Rest – house of the lord

I am discovering “rest” is deeper than I’d imagined.
Such a simple thing, everyone knows how to rest.
But sometimes I don’t. Yet as I wait. As I walk more deeply. As I turn again and again into Love’s Graces to me, I discover how much I don’t know and live into.
And how much these gifts mean to me. Continue reading

The Golgotha Key – 4/18/12

The Golgotha Key

a meditation on love’s cross, on dying into life. Take some time, stopping at the “selah’s” to reflect and see what images come to you that help you put yourself inside these concepts.

Easter – House of the Lord – 4/7/12

In my efforts to “put on Christ”, to put on love, I have a practice of prayer I call “The House of the Lord”. As “Lectio Divina” is the practice of putting yourself in a reading of scripture, “The House of the Lord” is my practice of putting myself in scriptural images to get to know them by experience. I’ve walked this road a number of times, and I invite you to walk it as well, in your own way. Take your time. Be patient with yourself. May you indeed find Life. Continue reading

The cross – trash and treasure 3-24-12

A number of years ago now, I was touched by the Holy Spirit in a strange, yet delightful way during worship. I was laughing and crying at the same time. A woman standing nearby told me that I’d probably been given the gift of intercession – bringing people before God in prayer. It was not the gift I’d asked for, the experience was a bit strange and it took a few years to grow into, but I’ve grown to enjoy praying for people and watching what happens. One way I use to know what to pray I call the “House of the Lord”. If a place is prepared for me, I’d rather like to see how the building is going and what it looks like. So I’ve created the following meditation.
Take a little time with it, and dare to imagine what this intro into Love’s house looks like for you. Continue reading
