The 12-Step Outreach Service team commissioned Julie Saad and Ray Muller to edit a set of DVDs by Thomas Keating called The Contemplative Dimension of the 12 Steps. The newly edited recordings consist of 16 sections with a brief topic summary listed for each one.
Thanks and a very blessed Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Contemplation is essential for understanding the deeper meaning of scripture. Scripture should be read on a regular basis as lectio divina with great dependence on the Spirit, who breathes through the sacred text. To give to scripture an absolute authority and the final moral voice in everything is a form of idolatry. It is to worship words rather than the God who inspired them.
