Thin Places/Thin Times: Religious Life as Lived Through the Curtain of Past and What is Yet to Be
Thin places in Irish lore are “portals” that open the past in a deeper way. Thin times are special times where we are open for the first time, or once again, to an experience of wonder. We often experience “betwixt and between” times where there are crossroads, past and present, light and dark. As religious we are in times of “ambiguity, paradox, and fluidity”. Religious who are retiring from full engagement in active ministry today have lived some time in the culture of the past but have stepped into a new way of living what once was. This webinar will invite us to consider allowing the curtain to open between the past and present. We will discuss the importance of entering the thin places and times and allowing them to “tumble into one another”.
