The Good News According to Phil
At this time of year, Florida's subtle seasonal change is in full swing. Gradually, the hot, humid days of summer are moving into the cooler, dryer days of Fall. Usually the spiritual life also moves gradually, subtly, from one level to another. We sometimes hope for a big, dramatic change: "I'll never get fearful again." But when we experience fear again, to use this example, let us be easy on ourselves. Spiritual growth, for most of us, is a gradual process. Effort and discipline are required. Let's not necessarily expect a quick change, and let's do our best to enjoy the ride.
Blessings, Rev. Phil
