The Divine Dance

I'm currently preparing a workshop on prayer and spirituality for a group of people preparing for ordination. Instead of talking about "spiritual disciplines" and a "rule of life" which sound rather rigid (good though the intention of those phrases is) I'm encouraging them to think about relationship with God as a divine dance - and to find the rhythm and steps of the dance that is uniquely theirs.

As I walked the beach this morning I reflected on the fact that the walk itself is part of the daily rhythm of my dance and it often leads me to what I call "my seat" where I sit and gaze at the beauty with gratitude and awe.
