Finding My Way
“If what you believe makes no difference … then it makes no difference what you believe.”
Take a few minutes to look around my cyber home
Fall Retreat 2019
I am a prodigal islander, having found my way home after a 42-year hiatus. I came back to a better place than I left and have fallen in love all over again with this very thin place.
My faith is strongly connected to my church and my community but something bigger and broader than both. Someone once said that if you want to think outside the box, you need to get outside the box. I am diligently involved in that process.
MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
— Thomas Merton
