I’m still not sure about this blog. I keep being tempted to just fold all things theological into my main blog over on Blogspot, Back of the House. On the other hand, I also like having a kind of sacred space, online. Time will tell.
In spiritual news, I am headed off next week to spend 5 days in retreat with the Order of Julian, an Episcopalian contemplative order which honors Julian of Norwich. It feels a little odd, going outside of my tradition. But it also feels right. Maybe the differences will force me to pay closer attention to what’s going on around me.
I am excited and frightened out of my mind. As a control freak, it’s awfully disturbing to just Be Still and Listen. What if G-d says something I don’t want to hear? But here I go, and, as Julian wrote, “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.”
Please pray for me.
