Welcome to my latest experiment in media on this blog site. Tom Allen, who is also a spiritual director, helped me tape a series of videos on the theme Coming Closer to God.

Each one of them starts with this introduction: A wise old mystic said that when we were born God put within us a little spark of the Divine. Our job is to fan the flame and bring it forward into the world. Our challenge, the mystic said, is to ask ourselves how close we are willing to come to the fire.

The first four videos are on these themes:

Paradox

Surrender

Image of God

God’s Humor
