God spoke to me recently.
Not through a mediated form -- albeit it was through another human being. Not through concept nor reading nor paradox nor metaphor nor memory. But right Here and Now!
I was truly blown away. It was neither expected (at all) nor on a subject about which I'd been thinking.
This podcast gives the outline of what happened. There were even witnesses.
In the midst of an otherwise delightful walk down memory lane with companions whom I cherish, one of these companions suddenly uttered some truths so powerful and demanding of attention that we were all suddenly stopped in our tracks. Stopped in our tracks.
I still can't believe it happened. Mary's comment, when I told her the story, was simply: "You were sure plunged into very deep waters there."
Now they were Good Waters, True Waters, Healing Waters.
Moreover, they weren't "nuanced" or "complicated". It wasn't a case of "Both/And". It was a case of straight-up Either/Or.
I was suddenly, indubitably JUSTIFIED.
Listen to this cast and ask yourself if it's happened to you. Do you want it to happen to you? Do you care? Do you want me to tell you more? (I'll be glad to, and probably in another cast.)
Oh, and the closing music is an excerpt from "Jesus Says", by our favorite Northern Irish Protestant rock band, 'Ash'. I just like the riff. And the title. LUV U.
