And we’ve learned together there are seasons of orientation where everything, we call them psalms of orientation–where everything seems fine, everything is flowing, right is right and wrong is wrong, the wicked get punished, the right get rewarded….

But we also found there are seasons of disorientation equally real and they have to be embraced. And you must have a spiritual language capable of dealing with disorientation…and then there are psalms of reorientation where everything you’ve gleaned from the past. […]

Doubt in the Excluded Middle

Today we continue to look at life in the excluded middle, focusing on doubt in the excluded middle.

We have set that category up so we can begin to develop a spiritual language that can embrace every season of life.
