A Place Apart

We went to a hymn singing at this wonderful place, it was a glorious experience of escaping the technology bound world.  No electricity and just the hymbooks and voices.  Scripture verses are written all around the interior of the chapel.  It is located in a place in the woods that gives a sence of seclusion and removal, on the Berry College campus in North GA.  Just being there has resonated deeply in my spirit and was a great refreshment.

Inner Simplicity

Matthew 6:22  The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Give up all things that scatter or multiply, or that hinder having a single eye.  If the right hand offends, cut it off.  Only do things that can be reduced to one thing.  Multiples are of the world.  The development of civilization (the world system) began with multiplying.
We are called to inner unity and the unity of the Body of Christ.  If people stay in their personalities, they are in the realm of multiplicities.  We must lose our life to find it.
