my ground of being
I’ve always enjoyed theologian Paul Tillich's name for God, “Ground of Being.” The title My Ground of Being emerged spontaneously as I scratched words in the brown paint while teaching an arts & spirituality workshop at Pendle Hill Quaker Retreat Center. I’m very fond of this altar-like, sacred space and flame grounded by Being. What does this image mean to you?
