This site did not end!

Reactions to the death of this site convinced me to restart it! Hope you find resources, information and insights that enrich your life.

 

Living in an evolving universe confirms that “there is a time for everything: a time to begin, a time to end ….”

April 2012 was my time to begin this site; about a year later I started this blog. (I wasn’t sure I could pull off a blog, but it hasn’t been that difficult and I encourage you to try it!)

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.

  7. Oh, Terri. I have such mixed feelings about this message! Very grateful for all the time and energy you’ve spent on the blog over the years, but sad to see it end. You have done so much to educate us on ecospirituality. I will certainly try using it in my own ministry and life. Will you be out for jubilees this year? We have the Associate National Gathering that weekend, which John and I will attend. The plan is for all of us to come to the jubilee celebration. Wishing you every blessing! Judy

  8. Many thanks, Judy! By chance I was looking through my Cornelia material this morning deciding what to give our new pastor. Yours is the best! Thanks for absorbing the ecospirituality stuff so productively! No trips this summer for me, but I’ll be with the Associates in spirit and prayer! XXOO

  11. Terri, I have just recently discovered your blog site and was wonderfully encouraged by it, since i have been looking for such rich inspiration for some time after doing the An Tairseach program a couple of years ago in Wicklow. whatever you decide for the future, I will be grateful for your inspiring words and processes, also to connect me to so many other websites and resources in this area such as Seescapes.

    • Thanks so much for your rewarding comments, Terry! My decision is to leave the site available, update the Advent and Lent resources as needed, but not to supply regular blogs. I’m very grateful that people find the site material helpful!

      • Great idea Terri! How about that? We have a similar name!
        You know when it’s time to move on and I applaud your decision. But, yes, how helpful it will be that your resources are updated without having the constant responsibility of keeping the blog going.

        Blessings on all you do,

        Terry
