Spiritual Friendship


I've been promising Ron Belgau that I would write for the Spiritual Friendship blog for a long time now. I finally did. Interscape is a piece about Gerard Manley Hopkins, intersubjectivity, the meaning of friendship, and the Communion of Saints.

Peter and the Cock



I want to talk about the problem of what is meant when someone says that they cannot overcome their sin.

On the surface, this looks like it's just whining. Probably untrue. They're making excuses. But no, I don't think this is right. It is a very comforting idea, to think that we are always capable of overcoming sin in our own lives, but I don't think that it's true.
