Introduction

This begins without beginning: that is what one finds here are the raw edges of a greater tapestry. This is not a journal, it is though acts of interpretation. Do not seek what is outside the text, there is nothing outside the text. What is offered here are interpretations from a point in time in space and from a set of texts.
This blog is also an invitation to join in this act of interpretation, to weave your textile with these raw edges.
This invitation and these interpretations are offered out of a practice of contemplation in concert with action, withdrawal for the sake of connection.
Ultimately all that is written here is offered to God's glory and neighbor's good, in the traditions of Lutheran pietism and Christian monasticism.

Lord open my lips,
And my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
