Kinship

Greg Boyle calls it kinship.

Skype calls it connection.

Jesus called it love.

Stay Together

Larger Love

Why do I write this?

Why do I live?

My main line in college at Tarkio was “What are we here for?”–much to the delight (sic) of my Vietnam era compadres…actually I just misspelled that “coma padres”! Ha!

Any way this morning I read a line from Father Greg Boyle how in his writing he “aspires to connect us to a higher view and to participate in a larger love.”

That is a good purpose line for this LSJ blog–for my so called hodgepodge life.

To scramble up a bunch of rocks to get a higher view. To listen, change radically, hang in there relentlessly so as to receive and give just a gram of love if possible.

Sometimes –actually really often if I am willing, my life gets changed forever.
