Looking foward to an Advent of practicing the possibilities of seeing. I’m a professor in a small United Methodist seminary in Ohio. Last week, I spoke to students about the desert Abbas and Ammas understanding ascetic practice as slowly learning to see (hear, taste, …). The disciplines offered ways for renewing spiritual/physical senses occluded by the Fall.
This is a wonderful idea, looking forward to beginning on December 1, until then I’ll work on polishing my spectacles.
