Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
We can live to get our way
and we can live to do what needs to be done,
and needs us to do it,
with the gifts of our essential nature
and innate virtues--
even though that would interfere with
getting our way.
We can live with our good in mind,
and we can live with the good
of the situation as a whole in mind.
Whose good is the good we call good?
How good is the good we call good?
Who besides us says it is good?
We have to be able to look ourselves in the eye.
Integrity and sincerity demand it.
Balance and harmony require it.
Let everything else
fall into place around that.
Balance and harmony.
Integrity and sincerity.
The foundation of a good life.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
