Very interesting, this stuff about liminality, thanks for sharing it. Theorists like Marc Ague suggest that we exist between a number of liminal places - or 'non-places' - like motorways and airport departure lounges, which are anywhere and nowhere, we're comfortable in them because we've adapted to their predictability; others, however, like Joe Moran (in Reading the Everyday) suggest there's actually a lot going on in these 'liminal' places... and scripture would suggest there's a lot going on for those in the wilderness, for exiles, for sojourners. Brueggemann's The Land is good on all this.


I am in a liminal wilderness place right now and I identify with this post completely. One way I know that God is orchestrating this extended season is that there is absolutely nothing whatsoever I can do to change or fix it. The only thing left for me to do is surrender to God my Father. The past year has been an accelerated time of learning from Him and leaning on Him. I wouldn't wish the painful experiences on anyone but then I wouldn't exchange what I have learned either. He loves me so much more than I ever knew. Maureen
