A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships So that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, So that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with tears To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war, So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and To turn their pain into joy…. Read more

OUR FATHER…

This week we began the season of Lent. For me lent is a time where I try to focus increasingly on prayer. I’ve been thinking a lot about the practice, as well as reading what others had to say. Recently other people have also been asking questions about prayer. For example this week I got this question: “I really like to pray, but I don’t know if what I pray is what God wants and desires for the person I’m… Read more

A Prayer

Ich bete wieder, du Elauchter”I am praying again, Awesome One. You hear me again, as wordsfrom the depths of merush toward you in the wind. I’ve been scattered in pieces,torn by conflict,mocked by laughter,washed down in drink. In alleyways I sweep myself upout of garbage and broken glass.With my half-mouth I stammer you,who are eternal in your symmetry.I lift to you my half-handsin wordless beseeching, that I may find againthe eyes with which I once beheld you. I am a… Read more

We have been going though a series of these “disciplines,” Many of them are very easy to understand why one might want to do them. (e.g. Reading scripture is valuable because it tells us about so many things God has done, promises to do, and connects us into the lives of… Read more

Paths to God: Week 1

Ok here is a question: Name as many forms of prayer as you can think of! Many of you probably thought of traditional forms similar to the Lord’s Prayer. Some may have thought or praying in tongues. A number of you could have though of guided prayer, or prayer books. Still others may have thought of prayers of intercession, for the sake of an individual, a city, or any thing else. There are prayers of desperation where one might call… Read more

One True Faith??

A reader, mark, recently asked me how “I know mine is the ‘One and Only True Faith'” I thought I would put my response up here for everyone to comment on. I don’t really know that. Faith is something that shows me something of God, but not him entirely. There is always the possibility that God is much bigger then my own faith. In fact a God that wasn’t would be very troublesome to me. I personally believe that Jesus… Read more
