Grace is the territory between the troubling dark and the yearned for light, adhering them both, filling the essential space between them.

On this Threshold Singing

While our age feels edgy, dark, and dangerous, it is also a potent time, full of possibility; and it is in these times when we are given exactly the songs we need: deep songs of the earth, ancient songs that began long ago, and new songs rising out of our hearts.

To Melt Unyielding Ice

What more urgent time than now, in the words of Teilhard de Chardin, to “trust in the slow work of God.”

“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”


-John O’Donohue
