The ocean was a five minute stroll from the conference center last week. It was a pleasure to walk in the waves, or to just sit nearby and listen and watch. A little bird would skitter between the waves, but never get caught in one. I also watched my fellow priests, walking, praying, and collecting sea shells. I could watch their spiritual musings. The sea was healing when we would gather, especially in small groups, we would share about our spiritual journey, our concerns and joys. We did not have the same spiritual practices, but when we came together and shared, we were all enriched. 
It made me think of St. Thomas.. We all have unique spiritual lives, but we are all enriched when we come together for worship and conversation. I hope you will find or make opportunity to talk with someone about your spiritual journey. You can do it in your Bible Study. You can start your own Bible Study or group. You could risk it at coffee hour. Don’t worry about being the same as others. Share who you are and all will draw closer to God.

Journeying with you!
