On the Threshold
Well, living on the threshold (or the liminal space--the space between spaces) can be unsettling. But Daniel set the example for us all. He found peace and rested in that in-between space. That's what we continued to try to do--live in peace while we awaited news on a loan that might let us confirm whether or not we would buy the land we hoped to buy.
That was three nights ago. And now we know that we WILL be buying land and renovating and building and growing and making deeper roots in this community during this coming sabbatical year. We are grateful to know, but also trying to avoid forgetting that threshold space--that liminal space. It is in such places and times that it is most easy to connect to the divine and be most open and aware that all of life around us is one big miracle.
