Last evening, a little beauty to end the day.
The weather is threatening to break for the good here any hour. Spring to reach it’s full bloom still in the making. In the meantime travelers, pilgrims really, are starting to come to Phil’s Camino for a walk. The season is upon us. We have made it through the rain and the snow, the flooding and the wind storms.
Roni and her husband Callum will be getting here this Sunday. Roni came to that great confab that happened in Hot Springs AK last year. We were all there for the film festival but really we were there to meet each other. I think we were the center of gravity for the universe for a little while there. Anyway, that’s Sunday. Sunday also I am regiving the unity speech at Burton Church at 1100.
Then Monday Kim from the Berkeley area is rolling through. She came to a showing of Phil’s Camino that we did there with the Jesuits in January maybe, I forget exactly. Anyway, there was a bunch of us that went out for tapas and laughs and she was there. So that’s Monday.
If you are coming to Spokane, Portland, Victoria, Vancouver you are in striking distance of Vashon Island and Phil’s Camino. Don’t get that far and not come. We will fit you in somehow. It is part of our mission here.
Is it part of unity? Yes, absolutely. And continuing with our thread on this topic here is part of the email that I got from Cris from Buenos Aires:
“There is the point for me for unity, ourselves and the others are together on this earth, and with each other, we could represent us with a Ven’s diagram, there are places were we are common, there are places where we are different, and for me fairness is what drives me to do whatever I can to enlarge the place where we are equal, diminishing the places where we are different. ” Cris
There is a description of an ongoing process, of a sort of dedication. It is something to work on over time. And it is simple enough that we can all understand it. It is not complicated nor hidden. So reviewing, we have uncovered four precursors or attributes of this idea of unity. One, from Father Tom is hope, two from Kathy is faith, three from Catherine is gratitude and now with Cris there is dedication. That’s good, right?
Yup, on to my day. Comment when you get a chance. Thanks. Love, Felipe.
