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.

Something I've long believed in the premise of this book which I haven't read



I figured out recently that I'm working 75 hours a week so it's no wonder really that this project has been neglected.  I still have occasional spikes of views in the thousands but I don't understand what's behind that.  I don't think it's people.

Anyway, I've always taken it for granted that the Holy Spirit's palette and lexicon are comprehensive and utterly inclusive.  I remember from History of the Catholic Church the story of the impact on St. Augustine by children singing outside his window.   They were singing 'Pick up. Pick up. Pick up and read." He turned to the bible with a new level of attention. I really need to read his Confessions.  I had some preconceived ideas of it as preachy and religiose.  'Confessions' sounds preoccupied with 'sin' which I find boring as a focus.

Jimmy Carter's article on a major decision in his life

Losing My Religion For Equality

I've mentioned before, I think, this little story within Autobiography of a Yogi.  Yogananda told of an old female monastic who wanted to join a particular monastery.  She had been refused because she was a woman.  She replied "We are all feminine in relation to God." She was admitted.

well done context ads!

I haven't posted anything in such a long time.  Heavy sigh!

tonight I checked in on the stats then clicked on some recently viewed post and there in the 'Amazon Contextual Product Ads' were two book titles which I love together.  It was Toward the One and A Man Called Intrepid.  Both feature the same image of Madeleine / Noor Inayat Khan a spy who was instrumental in breaking the Enigma code.  I hope I said that right.  Enigma was a machine and a code. I think.

The Imitation Game, goes in to the same territory.

Now the Contextual Ads are showing Toward The One and Get Smart. funny.
