learning to see

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.

    Tim, I’d love to have heard your lecture on Abbas and Ammas in the desert. I saw pics of you recently via some of Glenn’s postings after the bike ride. I also have enjoyed Carmina Gadelica which you recommended. Just finished teaching 8 weeks of evening classes on Celtic Christianity and thought of our conversations often.

    I hope you are prepared for a great Thanksgiving. Remember you are welcome here anytime. Renee Lawrence, Port St. Lucie
