loose park perimeter (and the state of my soul)

November 14, 2007

loosepark10.jpgOne of my favorite seminary professors encouraged perimeter walks — a habit of introspection he began while strolling (literally) the perimeter of his rural property.

In addition to noticing flowers & birds & trees, he argued, such ambling is the perfect occasion for investigating (also) the perimeter of one’s soul.  I’ve taken to the habit.

Though less committed (to both park and soul) than I would like, I do get around to loosepark9.jpgthe practice of a perimeter every now and again.  This week’s stroll around Loose Park brought new resolve.  (Who can resist such beauty?)


 I’m so thankful for people and practices that force me toward a different kind of shape; I’m praying for the grace to keep company with them often.
