Highly recommended by me......




Sister Macrina Wiederkehr's writing brings fresh insight into the sometimes wrathful and patriarchal words in the Bible. Spending time with the Scripture readings and her reflections (and suggestions for our own reflection) is time well spent!

I have thought a lot about the word "abide" lately.....mostly it's other meaning, to tolerate or put up with.....as in "I can't abide unmade beds." It seems to have its roots in Old English and to have been popular in days gone by....and in the South still today. It is a word I enjoy using!

More information when "Googling" the word "abide"-----


"The Dude abides" a famous quote, which I had never heard! (Jeff Bridges played the Dude in the movie "The Big Lebowski").....and that Jeff Bridges has a new book on Zen coming out..."The Dude and the Zen Master"!


What next? The world is truly many faceted......never stop learning....even if it is mostly trivia!
