I’m Br Will White, CMJ and I welcome you to this blow. 26055680_10210671377442684_4383892406554754942_nWith a passionate interest in Christian theology and scripture, I intend for this blog to center around how we seek God within the context of a mainly secular culture. Along with friends and mentors, I hope to share thoughts, experiences, and resources to expand our collective consciousness and encourage one another toward a fuller understanding of the nature of spirituality and how all spiritual paths ultimately create community and bring us together. My own personal spiritual journey includes experiences in evangelical as well as traditional worship, and is not limited solely to mainstream Christianity but includes a deep appreciation for the contributions of orthodoxy, Judaism, Buddhism and more to the overall spiritual experience. As I have come to call an Anglo-catholic Episcopal church in Chicago my home, I continue to pursue a calling to deeper ministry through prayer, grace and an abiding compassion for creation.  I grew up in rural southwest Florida and have been living in Chicago for almost 20 years now. I am also a vowed member of the Community of the Mother of Jesus (CMJ), which is a a contemporary religious community who live a common life of prayer and service within the Episcopal Church. Richard Hooker identified four attributes found within the Anglican identity which provide a wonderful framework for the dialogue I hope to achieve here: scriptural revelation, ancient tradition, reason and personal experience. I hope that you enjoy the journey. +
