Evensong – Wednesday, May 27, 2020

A door opens in the centre of our being and we seem to fall through it into the immense depths which, though they are infinite, are all accessible to us.

~ Thomas Merton

Somewhere in our lives there are people…or perhaps it is we ourselves

Who are here to create new visions, to dream wider dreams, to hope beyond the ordinary

And to cling to very little during this time of breaking through into a new paradigm.

There will always be layers of spiritual understanding.

Always a desire to be closer and closer to the God of love.

There will always be a way forward with a spiritual mind and heart.

With the endurance of not giving up and the belief in one’s calm thoughts,

There will always be a place within one where you can turn and surrender

Where you are not giving up but rising higher through patience and wisdom.

Through letting go of what was, to what is of the present day.

Amen and amen.  ~ Donna Knutson

As often happens on the spiritual journey, we have arrived at the heart of a paradox: each time a door closes, the rest of the world opens up.

~ Parker Palmer

It is a liminal time, a time of transition. With gentle dance, poetry and meditation, through deepening and rising, we gather at this threshold.
