I couldn’t help her with the math problem she was working on because I just didn’t “get it.” It’s a little embarrassing to admit, but she was six. I sighed a sigh of relief when we were able to get past the kindergarten math problems and on to the part of our time together that included a car ride where we could tell our stories and remember the times we had spent together in the past. Maybe I can’t do kindergarten math, but I CAN tell stories!
The Soul's Playground
I consider myself a seeker; someone who is always looking to find a different way of living - a way that moves into a deeper creative spirit and welcomes the things that offer a larger picture of the Holy One. I can't help but ask a lot of questions and look for the fun and creative places in life.
In looking for something different in the world and in our lives, it seems that some days are meant for climbing trees and sitting in reflection while other days are made for playing in the sandbox with friends.
Here you will find my questions, my reflections, my greatest hopes - for our community, for the church and for the world. Often, I'll share one of the "soul collages" made while playing in my art room as an image of where God is speaking in my life. I hope that this space will be a place where we can share our tree-sitting reflections and our sandbox conversations. And, I pray that through the community gathered here, our souls will find the playground they need to connect to the creative spirit of God.
