Shekinah, Dimensionality, and Unity

Shekinah, Dimensionality, and Unity 2560 1920 Nicole

Those who were and are rejected by the church want to know God, want to be in God’s presence, want to be the place (vessel) where God’s Name resides – as the temple that Solomon built to house God’s name, this same Solomon from whom the Queen of the East came to hear wisdom. Someone greater than Solomon is here who already made the places for God’s name to reside—Shekinah.

Clark, 13 2473 3200 Nicole

Clark Howard JeeSung Snyder turns 13 today. My baby, the youngest of four, is now “officially” a teenager. Just in the past couple of months his gaze all too quickly approaching the level of mine slipped right by and can now, ever so slightly, cast down on me. I stand tall in this newly appointed…

Creativity Transcends Gender – It Is Divine

Creativity Transcends Gender – It Is Divine 1080 1350 Nicole

The only quality that can be ascribed to creativity is that it is inspired. Creativity transcends gender. Inspire – divine insight; to breathe life into the creative activity that is ignited within. Our creations orchestrate an exhibition of God’s being. Jesus, through whom all things were made (Jn1:3) is our true Mother, as Julian of…

A Collision of Peace 840 1189 Nicole

https://eirenicole.com/wp-content/uploads/ep206-collision-of-peace.m4a A Collision of Peace As long as some are not at peace, I cannot really know true peace. What brings you peace? Recently, in the field of physics someone developed a simplified (for physicists, anyway) model, or sketch, to describe what happens after particles collide. Nima Arkani-Hamed, a Princeton physicist, discovered a shape that…

Apathy – the Enemy of Justice

Apathy – the Enemy of Justice 2565 2565 Nicole

After the preparation and partaking of Thanksgiving’s feast, I might be forgiven a bit of indolence.

It is an immeasurable gift that I enjoy an overwhelmingly gracious…

Then, after…

https://eirenicole.com/wp-content/uploads/episode-0-mindfulness-10-day-challenge.m4a How do you react when someone you know makes a statement with intense conviction – and the thesis of that statement is utterly at odds with your own principles? We are often offended by an alternative viewpoint. It is especially difficult when the person suggesting this other worldview is forceful, unyielding in delivering it.…
