Native American Rainbow Legend

This is the Native American legend about how bluebirds created the rainbow. I told the story at the funeral of Ginny Jespersen this week, and have received requests for copies of the story.

Spiritual Literacy

This week's cool link is Spirituality and Practice. Spirituality and Practice is a website run by Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat. Frederic is a United Church of Christ clergy person with a journalism ministry, and Mary Ann is studying to become an interfaith minister. The Brussats are also members of the Mevlevi Sufi order that traces its inspiration to Rumi. They are the joint authors of the book Spiritual literacy. The website features movie reviews, ideas for spiritual practice, online spirituality courses, an interactive community and much, much more.

Dude, Where's My Blog?

Okay, so I haven't blogged for a while, but I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out which direction to go with the blog. I've decided to go with a "check out this cool link" format. Blog readers tend to self-select, so anyone who doesn't like the format will just not read the blog.

For my first link I've selected the best Christian link I've found so far on the internet: the online labyrinth. It's not a virtual labyrinth experience, though they have one of those at the Grace Cathedral labyrinth-related website Instead it is a series of narrated, interactive devotions set to music that you can do at your own pace. It is tough to describe and needs to be experienced to be believed. It takes a while (maybe 30 minutes) but it is worth the time. They have found a way to adapt the new technology to the ancient art of meditation. Make sure you click on the graphic elements that come up, because you have to discover the interactive features on your own. Enjoy!
