Ash Wednesday March 2 2022: what is a lectio soul collage? 

Since joining the Holy Disorder of Dancing Monks in 2014, I have been intentionally trying to make my sabbath distinctive from other days of the week.  My illness often makes one bed-bound day merge into another, and prevents me attending church (even virtual church), this is harder than one might think.  There are practical disciplinesContinue reading “Ash Wednesday March 2 2022: what is a lectio soul collage? “

advent apertures 2019: day 3

One morning we will wake up and forget to build that wall we’ve been building, the one between us the one we’ve been building for years, perhaps out of some sense of right and boundary, perhaps out of habit.   One morning we will wake up and let our empty hands hang empty at ourContinue reading “advent apertures 2019: day 3”
