Re-gifting a Blessing

...That's what I feel is my job this morning.  Blogging was not on my list of things to do this morning.  The list looked more like: clean and tidy, wash and fold, decorate and run errands.  Familiar, right?

But as I went through the morning’s email, I stopped to read one from Steven Purcell of Laity Lodge.  It had a link to a video.  As I followed the trail, I watched one then another and yet another powerful, artfully crafted video in a series called The Box Canyon.

    I took this in March - It's the Frio River, upstream from Box Canyon

If I could only choose a few words to describe the place and ministry that is Laity Lodge, they would be: hospitality, quality, authenticity, and gift.

And part of that gift, I discovered this morning, is this video series.  I encourage each of you to take 3 ½ minutes to view Box Canyon: Attending to Place, as your introduction to the video series and as your gift to yourself today.   Don’t skip the commentary below the video screen either, as it contains a wonderful definition of sacred space, as well as this: “To discover the universal, we begin by attending to the particular.” For more delights, visit
