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?
There is nothing more to it than this:
1) See what's happening in each situation
as it arises.
2) Be right about what needs to be done
4) Repeat through all situations as they arise.
All the ethical, moral, spiritual, theological, philosophical
orations through the ages
go into the burning barrel
as we see,
to what is happening here/now
with what is called for in response,
situation by situation.
Make this your practice
and you will be just fine,
and the world will be a better place
because of it.
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.
