Your Narthex or Mine?

In my humble opinion, matter is not generative. Only spirit is truly generative. Therefore form is not terribly interesting or compelling of itself. I like the term oikumene because it seems to head towards the search for what is true and living in the houses of worship of the world. I am compulsive in my dedication to knowledge of my creator. I am very broad in my willingness to taste (and possibly see) from any source where goodwill is evident.

It will all work out. HOW will it? I don't know. It's a mystery




Philip Henslowe: Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.
Hugh Fennyman: So what do we do?
Philip Henslowe: Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.
Hugh Fennyman: How?
Philip Henslowe: I don't know. It's a mystery.

While I cleaned today I had Shakespeare In Love playing.  It surprised me how little I remembered of it.  The lines above particularly interested me. It will be ok.  How will it?  I don't know...
I like the certainty.  It's out of your control and yet the outcome is not in question.


And speaking of mystery, while watching The Wizard's of Waverly Place with my favorite pre-teen last week I spotted a poster in the background for "Mystery Play".  That's pretty funny.  Pretty obscure and therefore more funny.  http://www.steinerbooks.org/detail.html?id=9781855841840

Kind of like seeing the Advent Wreath from the Waldorf Kindergarten (completely not in favor of tv for kids) in the Disney Tinkerbelle Movie.

real thing:

tinkerbell movie - can't find it but there is really an Advent Spiral in the movie.  I don't think they appear elsewhere so some Disney movie maker is hip to the Waldorf Kindergarten.


This seems to support up the thesis that popped into my head 20 years ago

The Esoteric is becoming Exoteric and the Exoteric is becoming Esoteric.
