I can't help but wonder if we, those of us who participate in the postmodern conversation, are looking for "Woodstock." As we struggle for the future, will there be a defining moment that marks the beginning of the end?

Where will we discover the thousands who believe?

Who will be the one to invite us to the party?

Will there be such a defining moment? Will there be a "Woodstock?"

Lord, as we gather, keep us clean.

Loosing My Soul 

What does it profit a man to gain the entire world and loose his soul?

I have always been taught that the interpretation of this passage was:

What does it profit a man to gain the world and loose his chance for heaven?

I’m not sure this fully describes the struggle of the question. This battle seems much more chaotic than just my struggle for the credentials to enter heaven. Maybe the problem is in our definition of “soul.”

What if the soul is not just the part of us that lives beyond. But, it is the essence of life. What if soul is life? What if the soul is the energy for life?

Yet, we also know the soul is more than this. It is also the indescribable thing that holds us together. Thus, the soul may be the chaos of energy and the order of connectedness.

So, what does it me to gain the world and loose my soul?

What if the soul is what keeps you all “together?”

God help me to know…experience…find and love my soul.

Lord keep me together.
