Dead Air Church - Early Primary Edition

Left: St Teresa of Avila, from carmelite.com


Spiritual text for today:
Let us look at our own shortcomings and leave other people's alone; for those who live carefully ordered lives are apt to be shocked at everything and we might well learn very important lessons from the persons who shock us. Our outward comportment and behaviour may be better than theirs, but this, though good, is not the most important thing: there is no reason why we should expect everyone else to travel by our own road, and we should not attempt to point them to the spiritual path when perhaps we do not know what it is. Even with these desires that God gives us to help others, sisters, we may make many mistakes, and thus it is better to attempt to do what our Rule tells us -- to try to live ever in silence and in hope, and the Lord will take care of His own. If, when we beseech this of His Majesty, we do not become negligent ourselves, we shall be able, with His help, to be of great profit to them. May He be for ever blessed.
St Teresa of Avila, Interior Castle

I figured that is just right for Dead Air Church, where we have NO collection plate!

Have a great Epiphany!

"...Something strange is happening but you don't know what it is. Do you Mr Jones..."

to paraphrase Dylan.

Absorbing moonlight on still waters in the dark of night

sleep drifts in on a slender reed before the morning tides.
