Before I left and after I returned, I was/am sick -- some sort of sinusitis and/or inner-ear issue, I guess. So I have not been able to think very clearly. I have had the good sense not to try to raise any issues during my period of distraction and dibilitation.
I am on the mend, and I intend to post again soon. I have missed the interchange! So I am personally motivated to try to evoke some more wisdom from y'all.
For today, however, I offer only this, which I think is great plenty for us to ponder. I have copped it from the Bruderhof's "Daily Dig." Ponder and enjoy!
Oh, break the chrysalis of doubt! Create a tumult in our hearts!
Plough up the clods of thick despair
And split the buds of ignorance,
And cleanse the winter-heavy air.
Drive us to seek what we have lost,
Until the flame of faith again
Has seared us with Thy Pentecost.
Oh, break the chrysalis of doubt!
Create a tumult in our hearts!
