I heard about how they see this place as a school where they can learn to live well, which first and foremost might mean to learn to love well — where questions are welcomed and answers are suspect (especially the easy ones), where creativity trumps consumerism, where the space is safe for all, where no one has to pretend he/she has it all together, and where we admit when we’re wrong (as we often are)...

We’re giving ourselves to these things, piece by very tiny piece. But before and amid all of that we’re giving ourselves to God and to each other. We’re relearning that we belong to each other already, that all things and people are connected. We’re creating space where we can remember who we are and whose we are — where we know we’re not alone. We’re learning that some people don’t leave, no matter how much of us they see, and no matter how many times we have to look into the eyes of a heart we just broke and say “I was wrong, I’m sorry, and I love you. Please forgive me.” There are places where we can relearn what it is to be human, what it is to be a family — where we can be restored to wholeness, compassion, and connection.

I had the privilege of writing an article for the Art House America Blog this week. It's a glimpse into communal life, specifically the experience of it as an introvert who also just loves spending time with people.

I hope you might take a moment to ready and that you might find something that resonates with your own story and encourages you today...

Thanks, as always, for your time.
