So what is “liminal space”?  It is a space “between the familiar and the completely unknown. There alone is our old world left behind, while we are not yet sure of the new existence. That’s a good space where genuine.. newness can begin. Get there often and stay as long as you can by whatever means possible…This is the sacred space where the old world is able to fall apart, and a bigger world is revealed. If we don’t encounter liminal space in our lives, we start idealizing normalcy. The threshold is God’s waiting room. Here we are taught openness and patience as we come to expect an appointment with the divine Doctor.”  Richard Rohr, OFM

liminal spaces in our lives

Each one of us experience liminal spaces in our lives each day.  Even our entire lives are one big liminal space.  However, we are not always able to see Divine Grace permeating through it or to hear in that space God’s invitation to us to draw closer and go deeper, to expand our awareness and to welcome the mystery of the unknown.

It is within these liminal spaces that I hope to share with you the many graces that I have experienced as a spiritual director, pastoral minister, husband, and a sojourner into the light of God’s face.  What you can expect in this website and blog moving forward are insights into the mystery of the Divine Presence in our lives.  These insights may take the form of written reflections, poetry, photographs, and music.  While some will be my own, other reflections may come from various wisdom teachers, musicians, mystics, and rebels.  What all will have in common is experiences of grace filled moments found in liminal spaces.

To recognize and experience the depth and breadth of these daily moments of grace we must have the courage to embrace a stance of radical listening and hospitality.  To engage with an abundance of wonder and curiosity about the diversity and oneness of ourselves and our universe.  The freedom to sit calmly with the unknown and the awareness and mindfulness to see that everything belongs right where it is.   It is with these gifts, freely given to us all, that we will come to know the
“liminal spaces of grace” and outrageous love of God.
