Centrifugal heart. Centripetal Grace.

A sobering September of wakes. From dust, to dust return. Leaving a trail of love. Hopefully. The series of wakeful evenings and even more sobering mornings, brought many faces to mind. Those who passed many years ago; others more recently.

A believing life (25): Content & Confident

Sunday’s lectionary was Exodus 1:8 – 2:10. Was struck by how much women featured in this short reading. Different ages, status, vocations. Yet each of them carried something of God’s light in and presence with them (yes, even Pharaoh’s daughter!).
