Light of Being: Wit, Wisdom and Woo (Spirituality Alive series)

Brian Doyle says, wittily, that our faith is “unreasonable, illogical,” etc., and then asks, “Isn’t the loopiness of the center of it the best thing of all?” Loopy “trust” in these times?! Yet that is the spirit of wit, wisdom, and woo. Wisdom says, “forget trying to define, forget assigning blame, forget self-improvement; divine fullness is freely given even as we ride the waves.” The heart and “airy grace” of woo turn us toward one another. So let’s enjoy our human quirkiness and our somehow wisdom, and celebrate our Life in God.

These times have pressed us to open our souls to find at a deep level the grounding of our Faith and Hope, and to dedicate our Love amidst trying circumstances. Jesus prayed that we may have “eyes to see” grace in all of life’s anxious, conflicted, heroic, caring dimensions. In this series we stretch our abilities to reach deep into our spirits and to live each day “fully alive” in the Divine Mystery. We come in humble and questing spirit. May we see that all is Grace. The theme for this year's Spirituality Alive series is Alive to Life in All Its Dimensions.
