This week I describe a method of praise that I've been developing in the last couple of years. Despite all evidence to the contrary, we are in a post-individual era, and that is another reason why people are leaving worship spaces that don't encounter the Whole inside of their expressions and rituals.
This is in early development so be patient with me!!!

I’m so glad that you sent this. Thank you , Alana! I have been feeling a bit bogged-down in the midst of Lent. The miracle is that God’s Creativity thrives in the bog! Love & Peace to you!

I welcome you in all the holy names of God, as Fr. Richard prays openly, for having your God-given talented company today affirming deep longing, seeking, finding, and praising "ALL" the Wholly Names of God. "YIPPEE!"

Wonderful. I am just finishing reading Brian McLaren's latest book, Faith Beyond Doubt. Your idea about lateral worship fits in really well with what he describes as Stage Four of spiritual growth which he calls harmony. It usually only follows Stage Three, called Perplexity. When we find the trap door at the bottom of the dark night we find it leads us to that place where we see all things created as being in harmony and saturated with love. It definitely is worth the read.
