We shouldn’t try to get rid of our own pain until we’ve learned what it has to teach. When we can hold our pain consciously and trustfully (and not project it elsewhere), we find ourselves in a very special liminal space. Here we are open to learning and breaking through to a much deeper level of faith and consciousness. – Richard Rohr
What is liminal space, and why is it important to our spiritual transformation as individuals and communities?
Father Richard Rohr says that much of the work of the God of the Bible is to get people to leave their comfortable self-protection to enter the discomfort of liminal space. At certain moments in our lives, we’ve each been lead by the Spirit into liminal spaces. This space is uncomfortable and uncertain (spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically), and yet these moments are what strengthen and transform our faith and move us into new ways of being with one another and our Triune God. In this podcast, Greg Town (New York FW Circle Co-Leader) and Reneé Jelsma (Wisconsin and Holland FW Circle Leader) share their learning and experience related to liminal space and its overlap with their Faithwalking journeys.
