Resources of renewal

This week, I’ll share some resources of renewal that I find life-giving. I hope they’re familiar to you, and if this blog has helped make them familiar, I’ll be very happy. We learn from each other. I chose “resource” rather than “source,” because everything I do follows prior work done by someone else.

Resource #1 is Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations, free to your inbox from the Center for Action and Contemplation. Each Sunday’s meditation sets the theme for the week. This week’s theme is “The Parables of Jesus,” and yesterday’s meditation was “The Weeds and the Wheat.” Here’s an excerpt:

Everything is a mixed bag, a combination of good and bad. … We have to … accept and forgive this mixed bag of reality in ourselves and in everybody else. If we don’t, we normally become very angry people. Our world is filled with a lot of angry people because they cannot accept their own weeds.

From the Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
