New Evangelizers Post: Secure in Insecurity

I have a new article up at  

For those who are advanced in the spiritual life and have learned to place God above all things leaving behind the cares of this world: this article is not for you.

But if you are like me and you find your progression in the spiritual life slow to the point that it often feels like you are regressing, then maybe you will be able to relate.

I was reflecting on the Parable of the Rich Fool (Luke 12:13-21). In this parable, a rich man had an abundant harvest and felt very secure in his wealth. But that night, God would require his life. I believe that many people see this as a statement about how we have no guarantees about the future. And this is a good and apt reflection. But I think we need to bring this into a more immediate state. The parable is trying to remind us of something that we often forget:

We have no security right now!
