Yearning for Spirited Composting

Some people can make even an e-mail poetically rich. A colleague recently shared two sentences from an e-mail one of her friends wrote.

They are in-spir-ing.

I cannot, not share them with you.

Here they are…

I'm convinced that there's an element of ritual that goes beyond aesthetics and 'belief and belonging' stuff, and has the potential to make us more whole and limber beings.

I want church to make us better shoppers, composters, listeners and lovers.

This is swoon stuff. Spiritual practice as a doorway to better listening, loving….and- yes – shopping and – yes, yes, yes – composting!

Ahhh …. practical mysticism …the mysticism in small, everyday things. I suspect there may be no other kind.
