“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” ~ Carl Jung
In my previous post I wrote about an advent candle which I received from a fellow spiritual writer whom I met during a very difficult season after loosing both my beloved parents in one month. We met at a Writing for Your Life Conference at Drew University’s Theological School in Madison, New Jersey.
Reverend Donna and I are still in contact with one another because I’ve been very interested in watching as her ways of how she ministers to others have taken a new route. She thinks a bit outside of the box about how to talk with people about faith and if you’ll tune into the Accidental Pastor from Old Stone Well Farm you will see what I mean. In her lifetime she’s gone being a fashion magazine writer (jewelry industry) to a full-time Reverend, to a part-time pastor who now is “living in mucks and chasing after cows” (her words!) and building a growing on-line ministry reaching out to people in many communities with her inspirational messages. She is growing new ways of providing spiritual direction to people through her videos out on You Tube or through her Facebook page.
