Dear Folks -
The title of the talk I offered in Ordinary Life this week was
Missing the God Who Misses Us
There is, whether we are conscious of it or not, a deep yearning to be reconnected with our Source. Wise and useful religions are conveyor belts designed to “take us home.” (This image I got from Ken Wilber.) The religion of American culture, consumerism, which leads people to find meaning in power, position and possessions; fails us.
In this talk I used a short story by William Faulkner to elaborate on what the “spiritual work” is that can help in our journey of reconnection.
That’s a brief summary of the talk I offered this week in Ordinary Life. You can read the text from which I spoke, download or listen to the audio version and view the presentations slides using the links below. You can also download and read the entire Faulkner story.
Be well and much love,
