Before becoming a priest, I practiced psychotheray for over three decades–so, I know a few things about phobias.  The standard approach to resolving a phobia is to engage in some variety of “desensitization”–to gradually expose oneslf to the fearful object of the phobia until it loses its power to terrorize–or at least reduce the terror to a manageable level.  I’m using hyperbole in saying I have a phobia about blogging, but its usually tough for us to try new things, and I am engaging in a bit of desensitization–easing into a new venture–getting my feet wet–and hopefully expanding my comfort zone.  So, here goes!  (Deep breath!  Push “Publish”!)


About aliceatgrace

I'm the Rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Hopkinsville, KY. When I came here in August, 2011, I discovered that we have a great asset that was being under-utilized, to say the least. We have a beautiful Chartres labyrinth that was dedicated four years ago, and I decided that I would do all I could to promote the use of it. It's now just post-Easter of 2012, and, about a month ago, it occurred to me that our labyrinth is a symbol of what the future of this church is intended to be. We are people on an ongoing spiritual journey together. We like to ask questions, and we don't always have to have the answers. We are confident that God is leading us into deeper relationships--both with God and with the world around us. We invite you to "come walk with us."
