Into The Desert
Monday morning, very early, I am flying to Albuquerque. There I will be picked up by Robert P., my old and dear friend. We are spending the week together at Christ in the Desert Monastery. This will be my 8th annual trip to this place. It is a pilgrimage that has become an essential element in my spiritual life.
I am grateful for my lovely wife who is always supportive with this trip, and puts up with the fact that I am very difficult to contact out there. I am grateful for my awesome church which provides this journey every year. And I am grateful for the 30+ monks who live deep in the high desert and offer this wonderful opportunity.
Obviously, I will not be blogging from there. I'm way off the grid. Please pray for me, and I'll give you a report when I get back.
