    Thank you Louise…

    I love the carpool image – that both you and Erica used- and the darkness to light reminder. It is always helpful to have physical reminders in life, they do concretize truth. Thank you too for sharing your story!

    Today I was reading “Living the resurrection” by Eugene Peterson, he described how we ‘practice resurrection” – “we engage in a life that is permeated by the presence and companionship of the resurrected Jesus in the company of friends” (p114). You’ll be glad to hear that he also STRONGLY endorses eating ordinary meals together!

    His useful reminder was, ” Jesus is host always. We are never ‘in charge’ of our spiritual formation. We don’t decide the menu. We don’t customize the details according to our tastes and appetites” (p78) He describes how when we are invited out to dinner we don’t choose the meal or the company … we go and enjoy and laugh and have fun. So good to be reminded, once again, that we’re not in charge!

    See you tomorrow!
