The word liminal comes from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold – any point or place of entering or beginning.
Author and theologian Richard Rohr describes this space as: “Where we are betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown. There alone is our world left behind while we are not yet sure of the new existence.” “When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.” (Patrick Overton, The leaning tree: poems) [Image Unsplash]
