The Grace Filled Divorce

coverWhen I first began to research the topic of grief in divorce, I never expected to find evidence of God’s grace so prevalent in the stories I heard from the women I interviewed. Though they were sharing intimate details of confusion, pain and sorrow, I realized that God had consistently shown up, even in this most…

Standing in life’s doorway: Finding our islands far from home

Like Magellan, let us find our islands To die in, far from home, from anywhere Familiar.  Let us risk the wildest places, Lest we go down in comfort and despair.    — Mary Oliver               I’ve never been one to accept loss with equanimity, though I often wish I could.  All the clichés about loss being a part of life, of accepting the good with the bad, seem to fall short in the wake of my sadness and grief.  This is true even when what is happening is generally a good thing.  In those cases, I then end up balancing on an emotional teeter totter between feeling excited or happy and feeling sad and morose.              The first time I can remember feeling this ambivalence was when I left home for college.  I was bored out of my mind my senior year in high school, counting the days, which seemed to pass oh so slowly, until graduation day and freedom!  I don’t recall how that summer went by – I know I worked so I imagine the time went quickly and the day finally arrived for me to walk out of my room, down the stairs and into my new life.  I remember pausing at the door of my room, looking at the curtains I had sewn a couple of years before with the Coca-Cola logo on a background of red.  I looked at my white, four poster bed and all the small accoutrements of childhood, and realized with full clarity that a door had closed.  Never again would I inhabit that room in the way I did... read more

The Tenuous, Precarious Nature of Faith

To say that one must live with uncertainty doesn’t begin to get at the tenuous, precarious nature of faith.  The minute you begin to speak with certitude about God, he is gone. –Christian Wyman in “My Bright Abyss”             Years ago a friend of mine once told me he was going to write a book called “The Benefit of the Doubt”.  I thought that was a wonderful title in that it seems contrary to our ideas of faith and spirituality.  After all, doesn’t faith imply certainty?  How can faith and doubt coexist?  And yet, I believe that if one is honest, the real question is, how can you have faith without doubt?  For in some ways, faith must be a hard-won and living thing.  This idea of a living faith also implies relationship and in fact the two are deeply interconnected, particularly within Christianity.  For a Christian, faith cannot just be an intellectual exercise; it must be a lived reality within the context of a relationship with Jesus Christ.  This implies an acceptance of the ebb and flow of life, of emotions that come and go, of experiences that support and challenge.  One of the more difficult experiences is that of doubt.  The German theologian, Karl Rahner, once described two types of spirituality – summery and wintery.  A summery spirituality is one of brightness, and joy; it is the mountain top experience in which one rises up with wings as eagles.  There are individuals who are naturally blessed with this type of spirituality; for whatever reason, they come into this world with an optimistic nature and a sunny disposition,... read more

The Empty Space Before the Open Door

  One is afraid. Naturally. Who is not afraid of pure space— that breath-taking empty space of an open door?” –Anne Morrow Lindbergh in Gift from the Sea               Once or twice a week, I take the train to Los Angeles.  It is a relaxing counterpart to the stress filled commute when I go by car.  Instead of sitting in gridlocked traffic, I get to glide along the rails, watching the world go by, stop by station stop.  I can rest and sink into my seat, leaving the driving to someone else.             The other day, on my return home, I was watching the scenes pass by my window, houses, trees, industrial parks, shops and restaurants, and it occurred to me that this is an awful lot like life.  Instead of seeing the dwellings and offices whiz by, I envisioned scenes of my own life, like the train, moving slowly at first, as it leaves the station, imperceptibly gaining speed, until the view outside my window is almost a blur.  There is my first wedding day, and then my son’s birth, in the next instant, he is grown and on his own, and a part of me wants to yell “wait!  I didn’t really catch that last view of him at age 12 or 16 or 21!”  Whoosh! Onto the next view outside my window – time waits for no one.             And just like on a train, I cannot see what lies ahead, only what is in my view outside my window, one moment in time.  If I am looking back, in a futile effort to hold... read more

Christ is Contingency

  But what a relief it can be to befriend contingency, to meet God right here in the havoc of chance, to feel enduring love like a stroke of pure luck. — Christian Wiman in My Bright Abyss              I’ll never forget my first terrifying encounter of God.  I was about 15 years old and sleeping outside on a hot summer’s night.  I looked up at the vast star studded sky, trying to contain the idea of eternity in my mind when all of a sudden “boom!” I was thrust into the void, outside of time and space.  My mind rebelled – my body, flooded with adrenaline and all sorts of other hormones, leapt out of my sleeping bag and I ran into the house.  My Dad was still up; the soft light of the table lamp by his chair cast a warm and soothing glow on the room.  I told him some of what had happened to me – only I didn’t call it “God”.  To me it was some overwhelming, incomprehensible experience of pure, clear, terror.  An encounter with the idea of eternity, with what I now know is an experience of the Divine.             This is not the warm fuzzy experience that most people talk about when they have an experience of the transcendent.  That is the one we all would choose – the love that flows from some unknown source, up and over and into every molecule of our being, the peace that passes all understanding, the “it is well with my soul” kind of encounter with God.  That, too, is the face of God,... read more
