this past week at recreate…


i had the honor of meeting a few of my distant mentors.  some of the best moments i experienced were in the presence of Ian Cron.  I posted some thoughts from his book Chasing Francis last year.

Ian took time to teach us about being present.  being essentially where we were instead of distracted and distant.  our first meeting was actually at a Super Bowl party where we discussed the influence of Led Zeppelin in modern music and then enjoyed The Who’s half time performance.

the highlight of the week for me had to be the Holy Eucharist that we received on Wednesday morning.  amazing art on the table by JVo

what a beautiful liturgy.  what wonderful songs.  what amazing instruction on what communion should really look like.  i wept as i received the bread and wine.  it was possibly the most spiritually profound moment in my life other than my own conversion.  i give great thanks to God and i’m thankful for the contemplative life of Ian Cron.

God is the One whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.
