Leaves from the Notebook of an Untamed Cynic

“How in the world can you reconcile the inevitability of Sunday and its task with the moods and caprices of the soul? The prophet speaks only when he (sic) is inspired. The parish preacher must speak whether he (sic) is inspired or not.” Leaves From the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic- Reinhold Niebuhr Here I will place my daily encounters with Hope and the Thou, despair and the struggle: snapshots, brush strokes, windows to my soul.

Voice still and small

A tid bit of irony.

I am preaching at Soulful Sundown this Friday
on vocation...vocare (voice, calling)
and I lost my voice on Tuesday night.

My spin: Finding one's voice through the
multiplicity of voices that cloud and confuse
and pose as our own takes slowing down,
becoming still, becoming
quiet...listening.

Off to the ear, nose, and throat doc today.
The holy two-by-four strikes again ;)
