Visio Divina: The Spiritual Practice of Divine Seeing

Seeing Jesus

A few weeks ago I posted the incredible story of Gene Purdie.

Because of Stargardt’s disease, Gene was unable to see. He had never seen the face of his wife or the face of his child. But, through the gift of technology, all that changed.

Moved to Compassion

Acts of Compassion

Have you ever done something that ordinarily you wouldn’t do, but you did it anyway because of compassion?

Under ordinary circumstances, none of us when we were in our 20’s would willing take an infant that had just dropped 5…


Moved to SEE


This past week I was reminded of the story of Gene Purdie.

He suffers from Stargardt’s disease. It’s a disease that affects the retina & makes it to where you can only see faint outlines of the image in front of you.

Original Intent

Life with the Holy Spirit


I have a propensity to get lost. I am, & I admit this freely & without hesitation, terrible with directions. It is not uncommon for me to get lost or miss a turn. In fact, it’s almost a daily experience for me.
