Haunted

Just a link to Richard Beck’s recent post – “Haunted.”  Good one for Halloween season; and a little bit along the lines of how I’ve been feeling lately….

In a way similar to Hosea, Walter called for our consciences to become haunted in a world where moral consciences are increasingly unhaunted, untroubled, and anesthetized. Walter spoke of the need to experience enchantment in a world that has been disenchanted, emptied, and hollowed out by consumerism, militarism, and other forms of social and moral decay. The final words of Walter’s sermon:

We must live haunted lives in an unhaunted world.
