“Which Way To Turn?” 5/5/2024

The turning of the earth, of the year, of the seasons, of the heart. Turning inward, turning outward, turning away, turning toward. “To turn” is a fruitful way to describe and understand the religious life. As the old Shaker song says, it’s by ‘turning, turning that we come round right.’ In these days turning often feels frantic, as in which way to turn? Is there anywhere safe to turn? Turning can become spinning, and dizziness, and falling. What can we learn that will help us in all this turning?
