"Real Life" Education

So I am having one of those moments when I feel slightly out of step with my congregation.   I've noticed that as I walk in service together with them, that there is a rhythm to our shared work.  Even when we come across a landscape through which we have to muddle our way, there is a rhythm to the negotiation of unchartered waters.

But somehow recently I got just a half-beat off from the rhythm.  I think it started a couple of weeks ago at a board meeting, and its just flowed right into everything else.  Time to focus on my own spiritual practices so I can come into rhythm at least with myself.  If I am not in a rhythm with myself, there is no way I can be with my congregation.

This is life.  It is messy.
