In the search for truth and meaning, it is a mistake to seek absolutes. Both are fluid, and sometimes topical. Our truths of today may not hold true tomorrow. We walk this spiritual tightrope, where balance is paramount. Herein is the truth and meaning we seek: that in spite of winds that blow, and in spite of gravity, in spite of aching muscles, and fears of falling, we move forward, one tentative step at a time. On this existential high-wire, we cling to the pole that maintains our balance. That pole is community, faith, hope, and love. No matter which way we sway, the pole will set us right. There is truth and meaning enough in that to sustain us. For balance we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
