3.10.17 … “do something beautiful” …

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Lenten Labyrinth Walks (Walk 10/40), The Cathedral of Saint Philip, Atlanta GA:

There was a big storm last night and today another storm is brewing. And on top of that, there is potential for snow in the Southeast this weekend. Last week we were in late spring and this weekend we go back to winter.

And the time springs forward tomorrow night. Like I said yesterday, the times they are a changin’.

A few observations:

Traffic

Sun breaking through the clouds

Cold breeze

Conflicted … which way to go and I actually got off the path when I wasn’t paying attention.

As I finish my personal rosette ritual, the sun shines on my face as I think think about my personal relationship with God. So, of course, I think of Numbers 6:24-26.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.”’

And a few thoughts to ponder:

What you may not know is that the same biblical teachings are found in the Qur’an: “Serve God and do not associate anything with God, and be good to both your parents, and to the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the neighbor who is near and the neighbor who is farther away, and the companion by your side, and the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess; surely God does not love the one who is proud, boastful” (Qur’an 4:36). What I have translated as “and be good” is even more powerful in the Arabic original, which reads as “do something beautiful” for the people it then lists. The Qur’an is explicit that our doing good and showing beauty is not limited to our family, but also applies to those in need, whether they are literally our neighbor or someone far away from us.

“Whatever is going on in God is a flow , a radical relatedness , a perfect communion between Three—a circle dance of love. And God is not just a dancer; God is the dance itself.”

And from 52 Words … and here is where I begin my visceral response …

“One of the best approaches for understanding inerrancy and infallibility is to study the way Jesus treated the Scriptures of His day. He considered Scripture to be historically accurate, prophetically reliable, and a true record of the will of God. Along these lines He stated, “Scripture cannot be broken” (Jn 10:35) and “You are deceived, because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God” (Mt 22:29).”

Hmmm, so the world was created in 7 days and no evolution because Jesus tells me so.

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

Rain …

Story of John the Baptist …

Birth a form of baptism …

Benediction favorite part of sermon …

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. Numbers 6:24-26

8.30.16 … I’m off the path that I know …

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2016 Labyrinth Walks, The Cathedral of Saint Philip, Atlanta GA:

Chalk on the labyrinth … A multipurpose labyrinth 🙂

Magnolias still in bloom

Children at preschool

Cacaphony of cicadas

Young mothers in fashionable maxiskirts and miniskirts picking up their preschool daughters in perfect dresses and bows in their hair (where are the boys?) — diversity at the cathedral

I’m off the path that I know …
