"Tent of refuge" is a powerful biblical image of God Amma that indicates protection, welcome, shelter and training. Faced with our difficult reality, I propose to rediscover the tent of refuge called Christian community.
Contemplate This - As we enter the Lenten season, I felt that a renewed contemplative practice might be just what is needed. Contemplation helps us to "see" in new ways, inviting us to respond out of love and not fear.
Horizons - Even celebrations last year like Easter and Christmas had elements of purification and leaning into God's mercy. A stripping away of excesses. A stripping away of control, really. And for me, a stripping away of false notions about hope.
