Contemplative Monk : Intentional Spirituality Transforms

Intro: An Outbreak of God

There are outbreaks of God throughout history, outbreaks that leaven goodness in people and in nations. They bring an atmosphere of love and acceptance, grace and belonging, thankfulness, generosity, and compassion…beginning with the weakest, the least, the foolish, the outsider, and the marginalized… come outbreaks of God to heal, and to make us all whole. Healing from the bottom up, so that no one is left behind. For this is what salvation does, but we have forgotten.

We have codified, institutionalized, and made it something to be attained, mediated, and controlled by those we’ve put in charge.

So God moves elsewhere for an outbreak of heaven on earth, where people can catch the Spirit of the Eternal, and Jesus is incarnated again, and again.

O Breathe on me Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love what thou dost love,
and do what thou wouldst do.

 

* Hymn by Edwin Hatch
