Today I want to introduce you to one of my long-time and trusted spiritual guides – Disciple Dog. We’ve been buddies for years.
If I was working on sermons and feeling stuck, I would visit him. He always helped me see things more clearly.
He was much loved by the congregations I served –people often said they got more from him in three minutes than listening to me for twenty. He knew that, but didn’t rub it in.
I’ve been thinking about sharing some of our conversations from our archive on my blog. I asked him how he’d feel about it. He said, “Sure, why not?”
We start this week with a conversation from last April.
At that time, we were all entering a lockdown in response to the COVID pandemic. It was a scary time. It felt like we were in a storm.
One morning, Disciple Dog told me that the night before he’d had a dream about being in a scary storm. He described the dream to me. Here it is:
Pause for personal reflection. When he got past his initial fear, he began reaching out to others. Looking back over your experience over the last year, did any of your relationships become stronger? Did you develop any new relationships in the storm?
DD is napping right now, but he asked me to share with him any comments you may have.
