“For my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.  And they began to be merry.”  Luke 15:24

Reading this today made me think of renewal – death to life, lost to found….  It occurs to me that I go through many renewals each day, renewals in thinking, in perceptions, in attitudes and beliefs – at least on good days I do.  Some days I relentlessly cling to those old thoughts, beliefs, perceptions with the unwavering certainty that the way things are, at least the way I see and understand them, is the way they are and ought to be – period.  It is difficult for renewal to squeeze in through a closed door.
