Ascension (Seventh) Sunday (B), May 24, 2009

This week the “C” bell in our ten-bell peel stopped ringing. At first… There is something in us that doesn’t gladly accept a gap. We have a natural desire to fill the empty spot. Our brains compensate for the eye’s blind spot, created by the anatomy of the eye: our brains have the capacity to fill in the blank. Is that what we do in the face of God’s absence? I think not. There is a memory inscribed in our bodies, cast in our hearts, and sound of God’s to all the earth vibrates in our bodies and souls.
