Two weeks ago, we'd have been looking at this landscape as we drove from Key West back to the tip of the Florida peninsula:
A year and two weeks ago, we'd have been in a very different landscape, the desert southwest:
How does landscape change our theology? I think of how the desert has shaped Christianity:
What would the Psalmist praise if the view had been different?
How would our sacraments be different had our first Christians been surrounded by a different sea?
Or maybe the sacraments would be the same. Maybe the emphasis on water (Baptism) and bread and wine (the Eucharist) speaks to a more essential something out of our shared humanity.
feeling the feelings…
