I have really no idea what exactly constitutes a spiritual discipline. I used to think that I knew -- but now, not so much. I know it's prayer, both corporate and personal, but what exactly constitutes prayer? I preached about it this Sunday, but I still wonder what Paul meant by praying continuously. I know it's praying all the time, even when doing ordinary things like washing the raisins. (The Genesee Diary: Report from a Trappist Monastery. By Henri Nouwen.) Attitude is more important than anything else. So today, I am spending time washing my own personal raisins -- which includes dishes and laundry and floors and bedding. Housekeeping as a spiritual discipline.
Oh, and for spiritual food -- chicken and dumplings.
