My sweet girl and I missed church this morning. I don't just mean being in the physical presence of the temple but our community, our "tribe." One of the conversations that is ongoing in Eastern Orthodoxy is love as suffering. I'm suggesting a video by Metropolitan Anthony Bloom that was filmed in the 70's which discusses that very topic. Click here to access the video.
Some of you may know Seth Godin from his blog. If not, you may find it by clicking here. In that article, he talks about his book Tribes and how we need to join a conversation that is already happening. Anyway, Eastern Orthodoxy is one of my "main" tribes." How about you?
1) What tribes are YOU a part of?
2) How have you connected with them recently?
3) What does the video say about love and how does that impact how you connect with others?
