6-07-15: Holy Resonance

Scripture:  Romans 8:22-27

Paul writes that all of creation is groaning together in the birth pains of a new creation. Caught up in those birth pains can become overwhelming. When things grow too much to bear, and our words falter, God’s Spirit prays within us with sighs too deep for words. It makes sense to me why Richard Rohr refers to prayer as resonance. The earth has music for those who listen. The poets hear the vibrations among all living things. The astronomer looks up into the heavens with awe and wonder. Our spirits vibrate with the frequencies of God’s image within us. How could prayer be anything but resonance—especially when all creation groans in labor pains. See you Sunday.

Yours on the journey,
