I have an Easter treat for you, and of course it’s a gift that will give all year long–no matter when you stumble onto this episode!
My guest is Christine Sine, M.D. an author, blogger, teacher, gardener, spiritual contemplative and the Executive Director of Mustard Seed Associates.
She has much to tell us about Christian spiritually lived in a healthy, whole, and fully-embodied way.
The Show Notes are SO full of links to books and resources. Scroll down for all of those.
• Please share this episode liberally. It truly is lovely to glean from Christine, especially as we begin Spring; and my wish is that as many as possible are exposed to her and her work. Thank you!
If you enjoy or benefit at all from what you hear, please remember that just a few dollars from you helps my efforts so very much so I can continue.
Leave a ONE-TIME gift HERE. Thank you.
Be sure to visit the Godspace – Mustard Seed Associates website frequently, like I do, for many treasures on your journey.
Christine’s experience as a medical doctor and director on Mercy Ships and her development on the ideas of health and wholeness.
Wholeness and the connection she found to Celtic Christian Spirituality.
Celtic Christianity as a brand of faith was identified with the poor and family and not connected with wealth and power associated with the Holy Roman Empire and European monarchs.
Creation in translucent. God is shown through it.
God speaks through two books: The Bible and The Book of Creation.
The many expressions of faith that shaped Christine.
Tapping into the tools, history, and learning resources (often through technology) to enliven and enrich our faith.
Listening for the voice and presence of God and joining God in what is already happening. This avoids burnout. The Jewish view of the day starts with rest and sleep and God at work.
