What's the idea?

"God walks among the pots and pans," said Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), the Spanish mystic and Carmelite nun. A few years ago, I started a blog called Among the Pots and Pans in honor of this favorite quotation. I prayed that God would open my eyes to the sacred and extraordinary in everyday life, and am grateful that readers shared their thoughts and comments.

True, inspiration and miracles do await us in our everyday lives and in our own backyards. But why not let that inspiration enlarge our vision and even test our courage? After all, topics such as climate change and poverty affect families across the globe as well as next door.

And so the idea for a new blog was born. I invite you to read and share your thoughts here, Beyond the Pots and Pans.
