Living in an evolving universe confirms that “there is a time for everything: a time to begin, a time to end ….”
It is now time to sign off. I will not renew its WordPress “lease,” which will thus end on April 14. I owe you readers a huge debt of gratitude for reading and especially for your positive comments. The site has received over 123,000 “hits” as of March 2nd. Of more importance to me, I received very heartening mail from people in many countries who made me feel my efforts were amply rewarded.
I received a few negative comments when I began. They stopped when I clarified that this was not a site to reaffirm dogmas and beliefs from the past but, rather, to help move them into our current understanding of the world, one that was unknown and unguessed by those who wrote the original Scripture and dogmas. I hope it has helped readers live more consciously and compassionately in and for our interconnected, interdependent, sacred common home.
FYI, the map that WordPress provides shows that, excluding countries responsible for fewer than 20 hits, this site has been read by people in over 123 countries! I am overwhelmed by that! Wherever you live, know that I am awed to have reached you!
I invite anyone interested in Advent, Lent, or Laudato Si’ reflection material, various rituals, or anything else on my site, to take them, adapt them, use in any positive way they wish. The site will remain until April 14th, but I shall not add to it.
It has truly been a joy and blessing to make connections with so many of you as well as to form my thoughts into typed words. Thank you for the privilege of doing so, and be assured of a lasting place in my heart.
