The Contemplative Corner

“rest your mind, refresh your heart”

The contemplative corner offers a space for you to rest your mind and to renew your heart. It is the blog space of Phil Daughtry and gives access to his reflective writings as well as his academic papers. The podcasts from this site include the voices of some of Phil’s companions in spirit as well as his own spoken voice. The vibe of the contemplative corner is influenced primarily by the Christian contemplative tradition and a theology that sees God lovingly at work in the whole world. The tone is reflective, curious, inclusive, open and progressive.
