An explanation

This blog is being created to document a daily spiritual practice of offering. The original intent is a devotional 365 project.

Perhaps the idea of “offerings” brings to mind the Sunday collection plate or burnt food on an altar. Both are examples of ways people have given of what they have to their understanding of the Divine.

This last summer, I attended a weeklong leadership training. Each morning started with a short worship service. During the “offertory,” we were asked to share something, often with the person next to us. It was a form of personal participation, a giving of ourselves to each other.

My purpose is the same as all of these examples. I have no idea what I will be offering each day. It might be a poem or prayer or photo. The offerings are for you, for the Divine in each of us, for the Holy.
