Thanks for watching this Ministry Minute!

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

Holy Ground
spiritual devotions for hope, healing and contemplative practice
 January 2021

(He dwells) in inaccessible light….
I Timothy 6:16

On the contemplative walk, we strive to let go of our spiritual anchors in order to let God act with complete freedom. The more one lets go the stronger the presence of the Spirit becomes. The unapproachable light is able to guide us, and we begin to hear The Word. 

The Word

Trying to come through that deep dark space,
Where if you let your heart open,
you fear
it might break into a million pieces and
go on forever into nowhere.
But The Word,
went forward thousands of years ago,
shouting things that had never been 
heard before.

Clear, sharp, unvarnished language,
that would speak of things never
 imagined before.
Hurling through space,
screaming life, love, compassion.
The Word found a voice in that
babe Jesus.
It would flourish right there
in his heart.

 That Word keeps shouting and moaning,
waiting to be heard by us.
The Word does not want to be made into rules.
Nor to be interpreted in any other language but
love and compassion.

The Word that came to earth 
thousands of years ago,
wants to be heard in each of our hearts.
The Word has a very simple message:
“Love God” “Love People”
