In this coming week's reading from Ps. 16, I am caught by the last verse: "You show me the path of life." The rest of the Psalm is heart-
warming, given that this the first Sunday after Easter, and our lives should be comforted by the knowledge that we live our lives and are part of the resurrected body of Christ.
But it is that line that sticks out: "you show me the path of life."
As I struggle to watch and participate in the coming-into-existence of the School of the Pilgrim, wondering "what do I do next?" and "where do I turn, right or left?" in raising awareness that life is an ongoing pilgrimage (and part of the mission of the School of the Pilgrim), this Psalm and verse strangely comforts me in an afternoon of anxiety: "You show me the path of life."
