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.

a sense of success

I've been working on adding this music for ummmm...... over an hour.  Originally I'd used Playlist but they have restricted their format so that music cannot be embedded on a blog any more.  This cool new company, and they really do seem to be pretty darned cool and professional, is PodSnack.  It took forever to find them but one can install a little jukebox with 5 songs for free!  They have other tools for building web content for which fees are charged. I predict they will do very well.  I would be checking into investing in them if investing was something I did.


The music selected here is from the cd my daughter created for our car.  We call it car music spring 2012.  I love her taste in music.  She didn't select the Cat Stevens.  That was me.  



This is sort of everywhere but I can't tell where it came from originally.  I like it.

The Christian Community




http://www.thechristiancommunity.org/features/essays-and-articles/working-with-the-angels/

The image above is from the 'features' tab at The Christian Community site.

This web page wanders on and on with many interesting links and leads for further study.  I found it a couple of weeks ago after thinking (and posting a little) about Whitsun/Pentecost and Rosemary Bergman who was the priest for the Christian Community in Chicago when I went there with my father in about 1972 or 73.  In the search that came up with this page I was hoping there would be a picture of the painting over the alter at the Christian Community in Chicago currently.  It's really three paintings making up one piece.  A modern triptych.  That truly glorious work isn't shown here, alas, but there are some photos of other questing art.

This particular article I will come back to again.  It's a page-turner.
