So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Drip, drip.

Staring down into a kitchen sink filled with water, listening to the surface stirred by a dribble of water from the tap, bubbles set in motion. So many different little bubbles and gurgling rhythms. How many combinations? God knows and is present to every possible combination.

You're invited into a fascination with the inestimable variety of experiences that await, though not necessarily a fascination with something as seemingly mundane as a dripping faucet, as a horizon of one kind or another that one can be present to and, present to that horizon, discover experiences through which God speaks and which can lead us back to and deeper into the Most Holy Trinity. Present to, that is, if we get our heads out of a sink.

May the Lord Jesus grant us the grace to see with new eyes and hear with new ears that we may find Him, He Who awaits our love and willingness to serve Him in our brothers and sisters.
