Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Have you ever imagined Jesus laughing? Tessa Bielecki has. She also reminds us that he was the one who made sure there was plenty of wine at that wedding party we’ve heard so much about. A lifelong Christian monastic who now lives in a cabin in the desert, she loves to share her vision of the wildness in Jesus, God, and spirituality in general, and will inspire you to bring a fresh, playful, spacious approach to your relationship to the divine. She points out that while modern Christianity has grown terribly dull, the truth is that “God is like a tsunami. We just never know what we’re going to experience. We’ve turned Christianity into a dull, dry system, and it’s as though we feel we have God in our pocket, sort of at our beck and call, and we can kind of pull him out as our little pet. God isn’t like that. God is wild. God is definitely untamed.” With her own brand of joyful reverence Ms. Bielecki offers practical suggestions that will help you break out of the everydayness of your spiritual practice, bring laughter and play into your relationship with the sacred, and rediscover the wildness in your own life.
