I think I have been influenced by some ideas floating around that seem to be more and more common. Some of my friends seem to be losing “faith battles”, some returning to destructive lifestyles, some grow harder spiritual exteriors but are still really soft in the middle. I know a lot of people that get bogged down in sort of “extra curricular” spiritual activities. I feel a need for maturing. I’m glad to begin Lent. I need to get old school about now. I’m thinking about every Rocky movie when he gets down to business.
I miss apollo. He’s such a great image in the training about how the Holy Spirit can work.
I want to let some of my own “extra” stuff go. Anyone else want to get old school and spend time getting a good prayer discipline going? Eating better? Exercising? Sleeping in your own bed alone? Spending less time/money on things that don’t deserve it? Kicking habits? Telling the truth? Taking ourselves out of the center of our spirituality?
Wanna let some stuff burn tonight at the vigil?
