Welcome all spouses of clergy!

Photo by Cynthia Burgess

Hello, everyone.

This new blog is specifically for the spouses of clergy in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma but all others are welcome as well.

Mostly I will be bringing you quotations and excerpts from books on spiritual practice that are intended to be springboards for your own meditation and reflection.

Feel free to comment or ask a question about anything you see or read.

Let's get started:

The first step toward finding God, Who is Truth, is to discover the truth about myself: and if I have been in error, this first step to truth is the discovery of my error.

-- Thomas Merton

Of course, it was also Thomas Merton who said, "The only thing to remember about prayer is to begin where you are." So, wherever you are, begin right now. Remembering to begin anew every day is the key to the kind of spiritual practice that will sustain us throughout our lives - no matter what happens.

Peace be with you.
