A calling for stability
“Without passing your own door, you can know the world. Without looking through the window, you can see the road to heaven. The farther you go, the less you know.”
—Lao-tzu, 7th century BC
“Deep down in our bones, we seem to know that rapid change and constant motion are hazards to our spiritual health. Humans long for the simplicity of a life that blossoms into its fullness by becoming rooted in a place.
– Cultivate stability by rooting yourself more deliberately in the place where you live.
– Truly engage with the people you are with.
– Slow down and participate in simpler rhythms of life.
– Live in ways that speak to the deeper yearnings of the human heart.”
—Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, New-Monastic writer and preacher
In what ways do you cultivate stability in your life? What does it mean to you to be rooted in a place? Do you feel that change is a hazard to your spiritual health?
Serum is a discussion about all things spiritual. It is friendly, serious and fun. We explore questions about life and the divine in an informal, open and non-prescriptive way over a drink in the pub. An initial short thought and question gets things going, after which the conversation runs freely. Serum thrives on a diversity of view points and experiences and is not about having ‘the right answer’. The evening is rounded off with an opportunity to share insights and reflections on the question. All are welcome.
