Reflection for the Week- October 25th, 2010

Seems to me we’re living in a post-trust world. When the major trust identities in a culture are shattered, there is little left to promote confidence. Since we have no where else to turn, it must be time for renewal.

Reflection for the Week- October 18th, 2010

On the global register the financial picture is bleak. There is no better moment than now to set in motion an economy of gift, which goes far beyond the economy of exchange. The notion of exchange dominates our cultures and influences all we do and say. While there is some validity to and place for exchange, it is not, as it pretends, the end of the story. Let’s beat back this omniscient narrator, through a grace and generosity that is linked into God’s economy of superabundance.

Reflection for the Week- October 11th, 2010

Our lives are so cluttered with debris that it’s harder and harder to think. It’s almost as if there is a conspiracy to prevent us from thinking about anything at all. Being zombies and robots – that’s it – that’s what it’s all about. Don’t bother attempting to reverse the flow. Beware! Thinking may do some serious collateral damage to us all.

Reflection for the Week- October 4th, 2010

Feeling at peace with something may not be a reliable source of confirmation that this is what you should do, or what God wants you to do. To feel this way or that is an important factor to take into consideration when deciding something, but it is wide open to duplicity. Making decisions and commitments anchored in theological truths, however, is a more sure and trustworthy guide for following in the footsteps of the crucified and risen One.
