Dear Folks -
I have begun a new series in Ordinary Life. I'm calling it
"Return to the Center." This "life talk" is titled "The Front Porch"
and is intended to introduce the series. I talk about how far off
from center we have drifted and are, likely, not even aware of it. We
must use both the best of scientific insight and faith to apprehend
the "truth" and make it applicable in our lives. Front porches used
to be a common architectural feature of houses. Front porches were
places were people gathered and talked and they "introduced" one to
the heart of the house. Our work is designed to go to "the heart of
the matter" so our hearts can be transformed so that the places to
which we go in the world can also be transformed.
