Hello friends and readers of A Contemplative Faith.
Just a quick note here to let you know that over the next five weeks this blog will be updated less frequently than normal. I’ll be traveling some, leading a few retreats here and there, as well as taking time to finish the book I’m currently working on (on Celtic spirituality) and begin gearing up for the next project (which I will say more about, when I return to regular posting).
So between now and July 16, I’ll only be posting to this blog as inspiration strikes. That could be once or twice, or once or twice a week, or hardly at all. We’ll see.
If you’re looking for some content to read in the meantime, I hope you’ll explore this blog’s archives. Here are a few links to get you started:
- Nine Ways to Foster a Contemplative Church
- The Hidden Tradition of Christian Mysticism
- Seven Reasons to Pray the Divine Office
- Is there a Contemplative Personality Type?
- Seven Reasons Why We Need Contemplation
- Do Contemplatives Need the Church?
- Seven Hopes for the Christian (and Church) of the Future
- The Fear of the Lord and the Love of God
- How Saint Benedict Can Help Us Grow Spiritually
- How Mysticism Is Unique — and Universal
- Mindfulness and Contemplation
Beginning the week of July 16 I’ll be back in the saddle, with three tasks at hand: gearing up for the RCIA classes that will begin in the fall, working on the first draft of the new book, and resuming my thrice-weekly blogging schedule.
So I look forward to checking in with you then.
I’ve got one more post in the pipeline for later today — an appropriate send-off, as it concerns the Irish word for contemplation. After that… well, I’ll see you when inspiration strikes — in the middle of July, if not before!
