Last night I attended the “Wednesday” that went with this reading and had something to share, but then balked and simply passed when the mic came to me. It’s sort of an irony - the share was to be about how I’ve found it increasingly difficult to share in recent months.
I’d been feeling bad about that, but in retrospect, this reading and the ensuing comments suggested a new interpretation. Though I’ve always pretty much been a left brain-dominant person, after attending Wednesdays for several years, the experience for me is less and less about the words and more and more about simply *being* with you all.
Not that words are unimportant, but they are simply pointers to reality (and often crude ones at that). Lately, just give me the reality.
