Featuring mediations for every day of the year, Yes, and.... provides a comprehensive collection of Richard Rohr's thought and teaching, based on seven themes: Methodology: Scripture as validated by experience, and experience as validated by tradition, are good scales for one's spiritual worldview. Foundations: If God is Trinity and Jesus is the face of God, then it is a benevolent universe. God is not someone to be afraid of, but is the Ground of Being and is on our side. Frame: There is only one Reality. Any distinction between natural and supernatural, sacred and profane is a bogus one. Ecumenism: Everything belongs and no one needs to be scapegoated or excluded. Transformation: The separate self is the problem, whereas most religion and lost people make the "shadow self" the problem. Process: The path of descent is the path of transformation. Goal Reality is paradoxical and complementary. 411 pages
