THOUGHTS WHILE FREEZING ON AN ICEBERG

Lectio Divina has taken me to many alarming places, not the least of which has just been an iceberg. It happened this morning at 2:01 a.m. In this mini-Lectio adventure, the Holy Spirit invited me to sit on an iceberg and then just left… Continue Reading “THOUGHTS WHILE FREEZING ON AN ICEBERG”

WHAT DON’T YOU SEE?

I enjoy watching the progress of Elon Musk in his drive to colonize Mars. Watching all the promotional videos on colonization, I find something alarming is missing from the whole concept of life on another planet. Look at this YouTube of a possible Mars… Continue Reading “WHAT DON’T YOU SEE?”
