Search, looking, exploring etc are all current popular concepts in describing our spiritual and religious journey. As regular readers know I use a new daily readings book every year. Last year Sally and I got very organised and brought one in the early autumn to put away for a Christmas present. We have yet to find it!
So one of my new peer support group members lent me this book last week. I have not read much of Richard Rohr’s work, so I am looking forward to it.
His answer to our title question is…”true surrender must precede the search”. He goes on to say” I do not trust the search without the the surrender”. So, no room for cheap, costless searching, if it has worth and is worth finding, it seems reasonable to cost something. Ask any professional sports or arts person. Sounds like a good manta for the year ahead.
