  1. Bringing God’s Consolation to a Weary World
  2. Keeping a Mellow Heart in a Bitter Time

We live in bitter times.   Families, communities, churches and nations are torn, divided polarized and wounded.   When the air we breathe is bitter, it is easy to grow bitter ourselves.   When everything around us seems hard and self-protective, it is easy to grow hard and self-protective ourselves.   How do we keep a mellow heart in a bitter time?   How do we not give back in kind?   How do we transform negative energy so as not to transmit it.

Dadirri The Aborational Gift of Contemplation

“Indigenous Spirituality and its Transformative Impact” Aboriginal elders in Australia wish to bestow the gift of dadirri, or contemplation, on the British, Europeans and others who have occupied their land. It is an intriguing situation, where those who have been colonised wish to redeem the colonisers by bestowing a spiritual gift. There is a powerful rationale to this: by insisting that the colonisers become contemplatives, the indigenous hope and pray that such a gift would inspire a new and fairer ethics, since they believe an activation of spirit would lead to responsible living and right action. What we see here is similar to Richard Rohr’s idea that contemplation and action are inherently related, two aspects of the one liberation.
