How we decide to move through major life transitions will define our formation.
Liminal Space is committed to providing faithful guidance through major transitions.
Setting out on any journey into the unknown of a major life transition is all about waiting without knowing--a difficult task, ripe with fear and risk.
But choosing the right accompaniment to assist, advocate, challenge, reshape narrowed perspectives, care, and help make sense of the otherwise tumultuous expedition of change can mean the difference between true transformation and merely rearranging your life’s furniture.
I went for a short hike with all three of my boys recently. We had just come off a couple of weeks of flights, family get-togethers, a wedding, sick kids and the start of another school year. We needed something to replenish rather than simply cope. It felt like a good choice, but difficult at the time to make given the level of exhaustion and swirling stress.
There is just something about what a mountain forest and river does that parks and plastic play structures never do. The best moments were simple: throwing rocks into deep pools, eating lunch on a mattress of moss, puttering behind a hiking 18-month old and launching stick boats into gurgling rapids. Grant, my oldest, was running up ahead on the trail. He stopped and pivoted, bounded back a few yards and yelled, “I just love the smell of the air out here!”
I’ve never heard him say anything like that inside the city limits.
