Dear Folks -
I took a line from one of my favorite hymns and used it as the title of the talk offered in Ordinary Life this week -
Tune Our Hearts
When our hearts are “in tune” we have a gift to offer to the world. However, the ways of the world so easily distract us - scare us or upset us in some way. People, when frightened, want definite answers that would give them a sense of security and control. In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus is asked for such an answer. He refused to give it saying, in essence, “You know much about a lot of things but not a lot about what really matters." This talk also gave me an opportunity to respond to two of the most frequent comments I get about my talks: First, prove it. Then, what you say scares me.
As is often the case, the audio version is somewhat different from the actual text from which I spoke. You can read or download the text, find the audio version and the presentation slides using the links below. The cartoons I mentioned are with the presentation slides.
If you are reading this, I want you to know how grateful I am for and to you.
Be well and much love,
