Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Eleven

Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Eleven 150 150 Nicole

University College Cork Today’s reading and that it is my father’s birthday calls to mind heritage, legacy, and adoption. In the Iroquois tradition a peace feather represents the family who, in turn, adopts another as family.

Peace and the Amplituhedron

Peace and the Amplituhedron 150 150 Nicole

After our first Sunday of Advent conversation, Lysander and I continued to wonder at the implications of God’s creative intention in the beginning: What if we have always had the ability to do magic, but God hid the knowledge of it from us because God knew we would not use it with an understanding of…
