Our Monday Morning Book Group is reading the book Becoming Wise. Earlier this week many of us were blessed to see/hear that book’s author, Krista Tippett. During our time together, Krista mentioned this usual first question for her interview settings (paraphrased here from p. 22 in Becoming Wise):
could you please describe the religious or spiritual background of your childhood?
How would you answer that question?
Krista gave a really nice talk and impressed many of us even more with her thoughtful answers during the Q&A session, including describing the goal of creating a hospitable space. That certainly applies for our discussions with one another … and maybe also with God!?! 🙂
POSSIBLE ACTIONS: 1) pose Krista’s question to one of your closest friends to see their response; 2) skim/scan this Chapter 1 link of Krista’s book HERE – lots of good quotes, in particular; 3) consider how you might make an even more hospitable space for God in your daily life
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit (and lots of hospitable spaces!)
