Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, doing, listening to, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – As Lent approaches, I’ll be taking this book with me on the journey beginning Ash Wednesday. Lent and Easter Wisdom from St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi.
A precious video to watch with your spouse or loved one – It never fails that when I show this video in my workshops or seminars and even to my clients when the spirit leads, there are usually a few tears. This couple is so sweet, they’re precious and they are endearing. Danny & Annie.
What I’m learning – I get really excited when brain science intersects with attachment theory and our understanding of psycho/spiritual relationships. This short video does an excellent job in summarizing Dr. James Coan’s work on The Self and The Other: Social Baseline Theory. Fascinating stuff. “So reach out and touch somebody’s hand. Make this world a better place, if you can.” from Diana Ross.
Quote I’m pondering – “My point is this: When I know that the world around me is both the hiding place and the revelation of God, I can no longer make a significant distinction between the natural and the supernatural, between the holy and the profane.” Richard Rohr
