Excerpt from Spirit, Time and The Future

July 11, 2011 - 8:26 am 48 Comments

An inclusive, creative, and a Spirit filled approach towards the future centers us on this pneumatic and soulful truth: That we are prophetically called, and that we are mystically invited into the fullness of life.

We are prophetically called by our ethical concerns and our humane principles that encourage equality, dignity, and being a compassionate witness. We are mystically invited into greater spiritual participation by our courageous inner seeking aspirations to live more fully in the light of God.

Being prophetic or mystical requires our willingness to have faith in the face of uncertainty- for no one can know for sure how anything will turn out. … We live by faith, and it is often a faith that is against the odds and so it forces us to live near the margins of our understanding, close to the bone, when it comes to any sense of security. Only by possessing a compelling guiding vision and having a vital purpose that can be shared and celebrated, can any person, family, or community come through to the other side of any dilemma, risk, or life trial.

The value of a religious community or any spiritual gathering is to unify and repair all the broken and split parts of our humanity. Then its purpose becomes to gather together to listen attentively as the Spirit educates, inspires, and moves us.

At the very last, I believe that there is planted in every human soul, an urgency to live:

To build character, to forge, and to refine the quality of our relationships, to reach beyond previously held limits, and to face the asking years of our uncertainties with faith and courage. The importance of our future rests in the assurance that we have reached out, that we have been willing to risk, and when looking back, in all humility and self knowledge, to be able to say that we have done our best…

 

 

Closing Words and Benediction:

 

The Spirit is brooding over the world (Deuteronomy 32), and She is ready to hatch her offspring— the women and men of God who will fully recognize and embody her.

 

On the positive and transformative side, Spirit is manifest whenever the heart is warmed and whenever the will is informed. I believe that our lives can be activated to receive the spiritual impulses of grace and change, and then we can, as a result of that leavening, act to make those effects evident in our personal lives. Then as an outgrowth of our individual transformations, we can come together and apply its wisdom as a dynamic and gracious social force throughout our culture.
