Last week it was Istanbul and Scotland. This week it’s Rome and Winnipeg. Those are the places my family and friends have gone. I myself have made it as far as Cincinnati, where my dad had a major heart procedure, and where I discovered this Woman and Water bronze fountain sculpture by Matt Kotlkarczyk on the edge of Burnet Woods Park, across from Good Samaritan Hospital. I am usually more covered up when running water through my hands at church, but I might feel like this woman seems to.
Since people seem to be on the move, I started looking for posts from diverse geographical locales . . .
Country Parson, in Walla Walla, has written a beautiful “approximation” — as he calls it — of the Nicene Creed.
Mags is in South Africa and writing about how difficult it is to be generous in our understanding of the words of others.
Michelle is not at home in Philadelpia, but is at the Vatican as a visiting scholar, looking at planets and their stars through that big telescope in the Observatory.
Liz shares a daily examen from Scotland about living and growing with God.
And Coffeehouse Contemplative is writing from here in Ohio about a mixed bag of things of interest to me — maybe to you as well.
What about you? I know, thanks to FB, that some of us have been all over the place already this summer — any blog posts to add?
