Here's an excerpt from Karen's eSpirit message this week:
It seems to me that it is less important to fret about the changes that happen in our lives but rather to focus on where we choose to put energy, as we decide how we are going to live in the midst of change. What values are going to shape us? Are we willing to try and make space for encounters with the holy?

Here are some more wonderful images from Wendy Fletcher-March in her poem “Quilt Beyond the Frame” -

I expected the pattern of these years would fit
the frame built by my own design.
In the living I saw that the pieces didn't fit
nor match, nor form the pattern of my mind.

Instead I saw the colours spilling over the edges
running into corners, and leaping over.
The design woven in the spilling formed more
living than the frame of my imagination.

From Karen's eSpirit message this week: On Sunday we will consider the question, Where have we come from? It will be an opportunity to think about the things that we do together in community that create openings in our lives where the presence of God might be known. Such activities are known as “practices.”

Practices help to shape the formation of identity. For us that would be the exploration of our Christian identity, recognising we live in a world where there are many pathways to God. Christian practices are actions carried out in response to the life and teaching of Jesus; they focus on such things as “love your neighbour” & justice for all. They bridge the gap between thinking and doing, and show how much each is related to the other.

How does this idea of “practices” help us think about ‒ and live ‒ the Christian life? Marcus Borg answers this question in a simple yet profound way:
~ practice is paying attention to God
~ practice is not simply something we do; rather it nourishes us

So I invite you to think about the things that nourish you and reflect upon how God might be present in those activities.
