A foot in each world
I am sitting in front of the incredible fireplace my partner had built for me in our backyard as a birthday gift. Real wood burning, pushing and propping the logs – searching and adding twigs to keep the warm glow stoked. The smell of the burn, so toasty on this early March evening touches my soul in deep and eternal places.
Before going to sleep I will stop by my church – Koinonia Church in Second Life – to read prayer requests dropped in our mailbox today, speak to a parishioner or two and sit in prayer before the night comes to a close.
Tomorrow morning, early, I leave for Claremont California – Claremont School of Theology to be precise, for the Theology After Google conference/event/conversation.
The wood, the wires and the people in each of these places are part of me now, tomorrow and as my journey continues.
