Richard's Daily Meditations

Seven Underlying Themes of Richard Rohr's Teachings

First Theme: Scripture as validated by experience, and experience as validated by Tradition, are good scales for one’s spiritual worldview (Methodology).

Time to Grow Up

Meditation 37 of 57

It seems to me that it is a minority that ever gets the true and full Gospel—in any denomination. Most of us just keep worshiping Jesus and arguing over the right way to do it. The amazing thing is that Jesus never once says, “Worship me!” whereas he frequently says, “Follow me” (e.g., Matthew 4:19).

Christianity is a lifestyle—a way of being in the world that is simple, non-violent, shared, and loving. However, we made it into an established “religion” (and all that goes with that) and avoided the lifestyle change itself. One could be warlike, greedy, racist, selfish, and vain in most of Christian history, and still believe that Jesus is one’s “personal Lord and Savior” or continue to receive Sacraments in good standing. The world has no time for such silliness anymore. The suffering on Earth is too great.

“A must read for anyone on a serious spiritual search”

Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self
by Richard Rohr

Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent (book cover)

A reader’s thoughts:

“This book is a must read for anyone on a serious spiritual search. It will make sense most to those conversant with the Christian tradition, but [Rohr] writes in a way that is accessible to all serious seekers of the truth. This is not another New Age feel-good book, not another . . . gimmick. There are deep truths here, rooted in the Christian and Jewish scriptures . . . . I give it my highest recommendation.”
