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.
