God is All in All

Authentic mystical experience connects us and keeps connecting us at ever-newer levels, breadths, and depths, “until God is all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:28). “The world, life and death, the present and the future are all your servants, for you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God” (1 Corinthians 3:22-23). Full salvation is finally universal belonging and universal connecting. Our word for that is “heaven.” – Richard Rohr

In Need of Healing

We all are in need of healing.  In our blindness we may not see it.  But, it is there.  In our humility we must ask for forgiveness so we may be healed – and restored by our Triune Lord.  Many Gospel stories tell of healings. Too often we can be captivated by the physical healings.  They point to a deeper healing – a healing of the soul.  Jesus numerous times proclaims a forgiveness of sins – and then also heals the physical suffering. But, is the sinfulness the greater healing?  I think it just might be.
