It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Finding God in the Dark

The medieval mystic Meister Eckhart once said that God is like a person hiding in the dark who occasionally coughs and gives himself away. There's a lot of darkness we're trying to grope though at the moment, both outside and inside the Church ... and we long for a cough, just a little ought, to keep trust part o our faith in God, rather than just argument, ritual, and politics (Mark Oakley in The Splash of Words).
