Sunday Inspiration: The Mystery

The Mystery

“We need to find ways of sharing our intimate experiences of the Mystery, for we are one. It is through one another that we will know more of the Life that flows within us all. It is through sharing our fragments of insight that we will come to a fuller picture of the One that is at the heart of each life.” – John Phillip Newell

We’ve been fortunate to have John Phillip Newell as the chaplain here at Chautauqua this week. His homilies have been thought provoking and inspiring. Newell is a well-known poet and spiritual leader whose theology grows out of the Christian Celtic tradition, which is based on the Scottish island of Iona. But I’ve found his message of mystery, oneness, and love to be universal.

And now I’ve added Iona (photo above) to my travel bucket list.
