I had truly forgotten about liminal space until reading your blog, i realized i was in one while on my mission trip..but since then i forgot all about it. thank you for the reminder and the challenge to living intentionally.
What a pithy yet penetrating post. I know through the years there have been many social settings (particularly with men) and invariably the question “Who are you?” is answered with “Here is what I do?”
Community and the formation of an authentic tribe happens when members are willing to linger in the examing room of God’s graceful and persistent queries regarding heart and soul.
My answer would be this:
“I’m a broken man finding healing in the truth that God cares and has a unique and redemptive plan for my life knowing that what I do with my time, talent and treasure today makes all the difference in an eternity I am certain of.”
Appreciate you Seth.
Some of us have had the honor of the LORD telling us who we are. I would rather live from there than mans opinion of who I am.Sometimes I forget who Jesus says I AM in him,in me i need to make sign and hang it where ILL see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night.More of my prayer life needs to be focused on my identity from his perspective.
Most of us put on a face every day of either: a.)I’m busy, or b.)I’m here for you. Talk to me.
We make that choice every morning, and in every encounter we have with a live human being every day.
There is a way to make ourselves available to people without sacrificing goals or objectives or scheduled obligations. Quite often it involves simply smiling.
The joy of the Lord is our strength.
Not that I’m walking in this revelation or anything, but it’s a principle worth considering when analyzing liminalities.
hi, i’m katie “christ” rowland.
