Identify Your Theology:
We're on the home stretch now and talking about spirituality. In Friday's post, I asked what the spiritual practices are that support your beliefs and your faith.
Today, we are turning our attention to our next question, today, but before we do, head on over to your retreat room so you can relax and let go of any of the day’s stress. Or listen and relax right here...
What role does your spirituality play in your life? Does it comfort you? Transform you? What impact does it have?
"According to interfaith minister and author Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon, when we immerse ourselves in creative acts, we can quiet the noises around us from our 'wild and wired world,' and truly calm ourselves. With these creative acts, we also can cultivate a spiritual practice.
In her book Crafting Calm: Projects and Practices for Creativity and Contemplation, Oman Shannon quotes the 20th-century Catholic priest Henri Nouwen, who said, 'Through the spiritual life we gradually move from the house of fear to the house of love.' A portable shrine can serve as a comforting tool, which soothes your mind and heart, Oman Shannon writes. When creating your own portable shrine, Oman Shannon suggests considering what brings you the most comfort and what would symbolize that best." ~Margarita Tartakovsky, PsychCentral.com
What about you? Does your spirituality help you move from your own house of fear to an inner house filled with love?
Now that you’ve read today’s question and the quote to get you thinking, head on back into the mini-retreat to close it and to see the journal questions and the blessing I’ve written for you.
