faith notes

Poet Mary Oliver says that we live in a culture that discourages us from paying attention to our soul. Theologian Parker Palmer calls it living a 'divided life,' a life set against itself. Episcopal minister Chip Edens says that the only way life is going to get better is when we begin to care for our soul. This involves practicing our faith and observing sabbath time. It means living a life committed and ordered toward ongoing healing, renewal and growth. A lifetime labor of love directed inward and upward. Then permeating outward.
