Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

Pioneer vs Settler. Brennan Manning - Unsettling The Settlers

"The term Charismatic renewal will fall into disuse because the pioneer people of god will be plunged into charismatic revolution."   Brennan Manning 

God i love juxtapositions, contrasts, textures,  paradox and parable.

Brennan Manning teaching style can be challenging. 

He can be really "dry" in tone, much like many of the older Catholic Priests in the North East. 

(i used to call it the drone monotone when i went to Mass in NJ. Those who ever met Father Henry at Sacred Heart Church in Bloomfield, NJ, surely know of which i speak)

He gets "mad" and "passionate" about "legalism" in a way that makes me want to "cheer."

I'm sure he and Rich Mullins are having a pint in heaven's bar.  

I love his "Pioneer Spirit Theology".  

"It bears the marks of life and movement."
