Well, I didn’t plan for this confluence of events, but, as is often the case, the Spirit took care of that for me. Today I’ll be out in Canandaigua, New York, talking to 70 Catholic prison chaplains about “Creating Calm Amid Life’s Chaos.” Couldn’t have come at a better time, what with this week getting off to a somewhat chaotic start here at Not Strictly Spiritual.
I am looking forward to this time at the retreat house in the quiet beauty of Western New York, hopefully out of wifi range so I won’t be tempted to read any more comments. But I’ll be back late Thursday to pick up where we left off, if necessary. If you leave a comment and it doesn’t pop up right away, it just means I’m out of reach. Every comment — unless it’s spam — makes it through, regardless of how it makes me look. Free speech is kind of important to me, even when it’s tough to take.
I’ll be speaking in a bunch of places in the coming months. (This talk happens to be based on my book Everyday Divine.) If you want to know where I’ll be or would like to talk to me about speaking to your group, you can click THIS LINK and go to my events page.
