Today is A Day of Liminal Significance

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold.

Nationally, November 22, decades ago, the day JFK was shot was liminal.

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold; any point or place of entering or beginning.

Personally, November 22, a few years ago, the day we signed the papers to start buying our home was liminal.

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold; any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’

Globally, November 22, today, in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic era and looking forward to being post-pandemic is liminal.

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold; any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition.

Biblically, from Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God” was liminal.

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold; any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, waiting.

Biblically, from John 1:1-5, From the very first day, we were there, taking it all in—we heard it with our own ears, saw it with our own eyes, verified it with our own hands. The Word of Life appeared right before our eyes; we saw it happen! And now we’re telling you in most sober prose that what we witnessed was, incredibly, this: The infinite Life of God himself took shape before us. We saw it, we heard it, and now we’re telling you so you can experience it along with us, this experience of communion with the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. Our motive for writing is simply this: We want you to enjoy this, too. Your joy will double our joy!”

LIMINAL: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold; any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing.

What are you experiencing today as liminal?

As always, I’d love to hear from you via any of the usual ways, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
