Choose your own adventure! This is not just the title of a children’s book series, it is also God’s invitation to you and all creation. African American mystic, teacher, and spiritual guide Howard Thurman described our lives as a holy adventure. In each moment, we are confronted with choices, small and large, that will shape what we and the universe will become. Each moment reveals what the Celtic spiritual guides described as a “thin place” where persons can encounter the Living God in ordinary time. While not usually as dramatic as the options in the “choose your own adventure” series, each choice we make in the course of the day awakens new possibilities for our relationship with God and the world in which we live.- Chapter 1
