If you’re like me, you love this world. Its people and landscapes sometimes take your breath away. And, seriously…did they really think that I would buy into this “you have a heavenly home, so don’t worry about this one” formula? You will find none of that here.
Thriving Among the Lilies is a tapestry of local inspirations and lessons hard learned. What does it mean to live locally as a global citizen? What does a radiant life look like in a post-Christendom, post-industrial city? How can I live simply in tune with the sacred earth? What does it mean for a human to fulfill their destiny? That’s what I think about on a daily basis.
I have seen more places on this earth than most old men. I wake up every morning thinking about building vibrant global community. I work all day sometimes catching glimpses of it. I am launching into a PhD on Early Christianity, having just finished the equivalent in Formative Spirituality. And let’s be honest, trying to maintain our radiance, living in 3D, often leaves a wake of disappointments and debunked expectations.
So in my few years, I have collected a few things in four subject areas that I’d like to share with you. I hope you take the opportunity to share back. Lovers of Nature. Students of Scripture. Global Citizens. Authentic Spirituality.
I also invite you to write a post-card and link into my events. Write me a post-card on your thoughts about all of this. Submit a message, or send me a picture (send these to my email: email@example.com). If possible, I will either post the note on the front page or use the picture in a blog post. And, on my Events page, you can link into some of my upcoming speaking arrangements and presentations.
