Instead of being ridiculed by his doubt, Thomas should be celebrated by his reasonable skepticism insisting upon his own experiences rather than taking the word of others.

This week, pending survival in the "after-math-ew", we'll move forward with one of the most challenging but hopeful passages in this letter. In a text overwhelmingly occupied with love, we find the first instance of "do not love". We'll explore what we should make of this, and how this warning might truly lead to life.

This week we'll be moving into the second chapter of this epic letter. There's a decisive shift as we learn of some conflict in this community, and are invited to practice a way of being that transcends petty debate, and anchors us in a life of meaning and goodness.

This week, we pick up where we left off in our study of a letter that promises life beneath the chaos. Last week got just to the edge of how we actually step into this experience. This week we'll begin our exploration of how to practice this grounded life, starting with our illusions.

After last week's thorough introduction to the community that produced it, this week we launch our proper dive into this letter. We'll explore the content of the "message of life", through image, metaphor, poetry, and perspective. We'll allow ourselves to live in the flow between the dance partners, gravity and grace.

This week we begin to read the letter of 1 John; a letter of love from and for a community of love. The opening draws us into the ecstatic invitation to experience the fullness and density of life that the writers have experienced. But before we can understand this invitation and this life, we have to understand the community it comes from, and is intended for. In this community, we meet a mystical group with a dynamic and universal vision for life and faith.
