      To Practice

      • Pray these passages again in the manner of Lectio Divina, speaking them out loud to engage your senses and affirm them in your being.
      • You may wish to plant some seeds, perhaps of different varieties, in a pot that you can place on your altar or in your prayer space. Journal what moves in you as you watch the seeds in the company of other seeds finding growth and bearing fruit together.
      • If you haven’t tried one of the live Word of the Week prayer chapels, supportive communities of practice, why not plan to surrender to this fertile soil in the days ahead and notice what emerges in your practice. Or you may wish to try a group on Meditation Chapel.
      • Most of the US and Canada moved clocks ahead on Sunday March 10. Please be sure to adjust for this week’s prayer group times.

      If you wish, you may re-read the full email reflection here:

      Once again the image this week is speaking volumes into my life: “… called to surrender our life back to the earth, to lose it in order that our Christ life, the one that draws out the Christ in others, might rise up.” I find myself in the upper right hand corner where I am winding  my way down to the below ground of massive root connections embracing the germination seeds of others. My root mass is snuggling up to new seeds waiting  to open to new life. My self is trusting that my earthly diminishment “draws out the Christ in others” as I anticipate a birthing totally beyond all imagination.

      Malcolm Guite’s passage “Deep in this crowded underground, to learn the earthy otherness of every other” resonates. When life’s circumstances turn dark, we feel we are alone. Guite suggests there are others alongside us in that crowded underground. We may not see them, or see the work being done in us. Yet, just as we don’t dig up seeds to check their progress, we sit in silence, trusting the Spirit’s work in us. <3 linda
