Spiritual Infrastructure

by Patti Smith

I was watching a History Channel documentary on the aging material infrastructure in the United States.  Infrastructure is crucial for our survival and has great potential for disaster if not maintained or improved.

Here it comes…it got me thinking (again)…..Patti J. Smith photo

Don’t we also have a spiritual infrastructure?  Isn’t it just as crucial?  If the foundations of buildings, bridges, dams, etc. are weak, there is substantial risk of catastrophic collapse. If our faith foundation is weak, it too would collapse destroying our moral compass.

If roads, railroad tracks and airport runways are not maintained, the cracks and potholes would continue to grow – impeding fluid movement from one point to the other. Just as with faith … failing to maintain a strong relationship with God, our joyful path would be impeded by detours of hopelessness and despair.

“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.”

Matthew 7:24-25
