Unconditional Acceptance

Photo Credit: Tim Gouw on Unsplash by Sharon Swing, Co-Author of Listen To My Life: Maps for Recognizing and Responding to God in My Story I recently witnessed a conversation that was beautiful in its vulnerability. The level of honesty was disarming and uncomfortable for the woman disclosing her story.  She began to repeatedly clear her throat. The listener spoke simple questions and observations, without judgment, that led to a deeper self-awareness for [...]

Reframing on Raspberry Mountain

Photo Credit: Biegun Wschodni by Kim Nielsen, oneLifemaps Facilitator Waking up to a God-kissed day on Raspberry Mountain filled my heart with joy! Much of what is life-giving to me could be found on this day: being in the majestic mountains, walking in the wildflower valleys, receiving my breath of the Spirit from the cool morning air as God affirmed my life this day, spending extended time with Him on retreat and sharing [...]

Worth the Wait

by Deitra Shoemaker, oneLifemaps Affirmed Facilitator Early on this cold December morning, I venture outside in my warm bathrobe to watch the unusually colorful sunrise of orange, pink and blue as the colors meld together. Even though the 37 degree chill is beckoning me to run back inside, I stand and wait . . . I know that within minutes this “hidden manna moment” will disappear as the sun fully rises. So I decide to [...]

Warning: Check Engine Light

by Kate Cogswell, oneLifemaps Facilitator When I turned the key in my van recently, the engine turned on but so did my check engine light.  This wasn't the first time it lit up, but it had been a while.  I had somewhere to be, so I told myself it probably wasn't anything serious and kept driving. Several days later when the check engine light caught my attention again, I dismissed my concern yet told myself [...]

Sitting at His Table

by Jennifer Whiteford, oneLifemaps Facilitator Steady. Engaged. Soulful. That is my usual operating speed. But not now. Not this month. Not in a long time. Insert these words instead. Numb. Frail. Sobered. In the midst of Advent, I am in yet another familiar warring season. A battle for my relationships, my body, and my mind. Experience has taught me to keep a rhythm of disciplines despite how I feel. These weeks the one thing I [...]

How Could This Belong?

Photo by Lynnette Richardson by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator “Everything in your story belongs."  This is one of the foundational teachings of Listen to My Life. On a good day, I believe it. On a not so good day, I forget it. Lately, the part of my story I don’t think belongs is my recurring struggle with depression. Depression has been described as a deep dark hole that seems to have no way [...]

World Events and My Story

By Barbara Giordan When I was little, 4 or 5, my teachers at Temple sat us down as a group and showed us old black and white footage: pictures of naked children who were nothing but skin and bones. They were strewn in a heap, five or six deep, like a pile of raked leaves waiting to be disposed of, only these were dead children.  "Jewish" we were told; they had been gassed by the [...]

Who is God to You?

by Sibyl Towner, Co-Author of Listen To My Life "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "God's Messiah." Luke 9:20 NIV "Your image of God forms you." Richard Rohr This was the way that Linda Holmes began the morning worship for The Springs Retreat Center board meeting this week. This was a familiar question as it was the theme of the Facilitator's Circle Gathering at Glen Eyrie [...]
