When I participate in a discipline, like fasting, I am saying, “Here I am, Lord. I am ready to sit at Your feet and learn from You.”

Master, teach me some of Your ways today. And grant me the discipline to do the things You teach me to do.”

Reading today: Psalm 65, John 6:15-40 Remember Richard Rohr. He says, “All language about God is necessarily symbolic and figurative. Actually all language is metaphorical. Words are never the thing itself; they can only point toward the thing, which is exactly why “The Word became flesh” (John 1:14). As James Finley, a CAC core faculty… Continue Reading
