The Rev. Alisdair Smith

Where do you abide? I must admit to being a bit of a binge TV watcher, I can abide some time in front of a bunch of episodes of a single show. The most recent was OA, a brand new series on Netflix, but it frankly started with Dexter a number of years ago on DVD. Now scenes in both of those shows showed up in my imagination as I was thinking about today’s Gospel.

The circumstances are now fuzzy in my memory but there was a time many years ago when I was in a period of spiritual drought: all but a small spark of faith had disappeared, and when lamenting about this to a friend, he responded, “Quench not the dimly burning wick.”
