Pentecost +22 or Community Practice 22
November 9, 2014
Opening one's mouth to give a word of wisdom is to open one's self to channeling the dark days of the past that are wont to regather and repeat their dystrophy. Wisdom is always growing out of our experience, not revealed unbidden from some above.
This is election day. At question is whether folks are able to remember far enough back to where we have tried attractive avenues only to have them again disappoint. The persistence of attractive-but-false decisions is quite remarkable--almost as if they are constituent of creation.
The "dark saying" is--What can go wrong, will. So lighten up and make the affirmations yet and always available to you.
Out of a remembrance of darkness will come a hopeful word that we will cut through the darkness more easily and quickly this time and place a stronger warning sign for future generations.
