Dear Folks -
In all the years I have been teaching I don't think I have ever heard such sustained applause in response to the talk Jim Sasser gave to the Ordinary Life Gathering this week. He gave his talk the title
Dodging the Holy Spirit
It was about his experience going into and what he learned from going through the "male rite of initiation" conducted by Richard Rohr's Center for Action and Contemplation. It was a brilliant presentation. I am putting the introductory remarks I made and the text Jim used below.
For those who are interested in pursuing this further go to
Rohr's two books on the subject are "From Wild Man to Wise Man" and "Adam's Return."
