Finding Silence —
My New Writing Quest!

So, you subscribed to the feed of this website, and then... Nothing! Silence!

I admit it. I have been really quiet.

Yet, I have not been doing nothing. Shortly after the launch of early in 2010, there were a few complaints about the name. People didn't really resonate well with it.

The word mysticism has some baggage, sadly. But add Neo- to the front of it, and you'll raise a few eyebrows!

I have to admit, these complaints halted my writing... Yet the second half of 2010 was one of the most (if not the most) significant periods in my life. I went to Taizé, a monastery in France, and my life's course is altered. For the better. Permanently.

Here's the good news: I'm writing again! And this time the name of the website will not raise as many eyebrows — yet the content still might ;-)

My new topic is silence. Since the content planned for has the same topic as the content that I am currently writing, I thought I would invite you over to the new website.

The name of my new website is Finding Silence | Practical Contemplative Spirituality. I write there on Christian spirituality and the spiritual disciplines that will help you find Oneness with God.

If you are subscribed to this site, please note that it will soon disappear. I am no longer writing here, and I don't want to pay the money to keep it live every month.

A Suitable Quote...

"How do you make attractive that which is not?
How do you sell emptiness, vulnerability and nonsuccess?
How do you talk descent when everything is about ascent?
How can you possibly market letting-go in a capitalist culture?
How do you present Jesus to a Promethean mind?
How do you talk about dying to a church trying to appear perfect?

This is not going to work (admitting this might be my first step)"
