Choosing a name for this blog wasn’t easy. Great minds think alike, it seems, and when I finally narrowed my short-list down to one, would you believe it – ‘Dancing Angels’ was taken.
Why ‘Dancing Angels?’ Simple. It reminds me of those rare ‘golden moments’ when I feel I’m experiencing just a glimpse of what it must be like to be wholly in tune and at one with a life-giving force spirit or ground of being. What I, as a Christian, call God.
Jesuit David Lonsdale speaks of Listening to the Music of The Spirit, of praying through our circumstances and the choices we face everyday. It’s a lifetime’s process.
At times I feel it’s not unlike herding cats, or, put more poetically, capturing a butterfly.
Yet there are moments when a veil lifts and then…it’s as if I really am dancing with Angels. Though I’d prefer us not to be stepping out on the head of a pin!
