Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, e komo mai: welcome!
Mahalo and thank you for your interest and time.
“All shall be well, and all shall be well,
and all manner of thing shall be well.”
With these words, Julian of Norwich (a mystic born in 1342 A.D.) experienced God’s transcendent hope which I pray will be yours and mine as we continue our journey.
Despite the often difficult and tragic circumstances our world and its individuals face day to day, Jesus-people (or followers of The Way) believe in hope, a
grounded hope which is not sentimental or fruitless, but a hope which transcends death, and brings life.
I believe in this hope, not just as a Jesus-person and a priest, but simply as a human being searching for meaning and purpose.
The type of hope I’m talking about is not that which ignores the realities of the world, or finds meaning only in the clouds, nor does this hope mean a fanciful daydreaming as an escape from our own situation, or as a way to ignore the needs of others.
Rather this hope, at its best, at its most transcendent, is an all-immersing, daily choice of life: a choice to walk an exciting yet unknown path: into a God who is both Divine mystery, and in-fleshed Life.
Please remember me that I may make this daily choice. And as you spend a brief moment here on these pages, do not forget to remember how much you are loved, and how much you matter to this world, to others, and to the Divine.
