In the summer time, the surf spots around Dana Point get crowded with people from around the world. We’re all looking for that perfect wave to fulfill our yearning and give us a head full of gratitude. A common nomenclature in the surf world is known as bathymetry. It’s a scientific name for the contour of earth below the water. It’s what shapes the wave and gives it form. There are waves called DOHO, Cottons and Sano. It’s a little like us Christians. We call out to YHWH, Abba and Adonai. There is a type of bathymetry shaping us below our soul. It’s a place where we form our beliefs, morals and commitment to each other. It’s what makes our outer appearance either glow or dim. It’s the only place we will ever fulfill our yearning and give us a heart of gratitude. Like the summer time, our place of worship gets crowded around Easter and Christmas. We’re all looking for that perfect wave that will shape our soul. Surfs Up. Peace be with you.
