Dear Folks -

There is going to be an Ordinary Life Happy Hour this Friday night. Details are on the Ordinary Life web site.

I based the talk I offered this week in Ordinary Life on my reflections about a teaching found in the Gospel of Thomas. I call the talk

The Missing Piece

What is it with our fascination at all levels, from fantasy to reality, with violence and murder? One suggestion I make is what is called in the psychological world “reaction formation.” What we deny, resist, repress has a way of finding expression. What Jesus taught, over and over, was that people are blind to that which matters most. We reject that which should be the cornerstone of the lives we are building, both individually and corporately. What we reject is our true identity.

That’s a brief summary of the talk.

Be well and much love,
