Listen: Wilderness

Sometimes periods of wilderness wandering are forced upon us. And sometimes we choose the wilderness. Sometimes, like Jesus, we feel the Spirit compelling us, even though it’s scary (because we’ve known vulnerability before, and it isn’t easy and it isn’t fun), and it’s lonely. Maybe once in a while, we wisely choose the wilderness, because there are lessons to be learned there — about depending solely on God, about serving only God’s purposes, about letting go of the trappings of the world.

Listen: Dust and Ashes

The Church doesn’t offer rites of confession, in whatever form they come, because we want to know all your dirty little secrets. We offer these practices because they provide healing. They draw us close to God, the source of healing. We are not the dispensers of forgiveness — it’s really God’s doing, God’s gift — but the ritual of confession is a way of releasing grace and hope into individual lives and into the world. Everyone needs a clean slate and a chance to start over, and it’s a privilege to be able to facilitate that for people.
