Many of you have read the trilogy by J.R. Tolkien entitled Lord of the Rings, or perhaps the foundational book to the series entitled The Hobbit…

– if you’ve never done so, I would encourage you to read them…

– they really are great books and some of them have now been made into movies which have several very important spiritual lessons and teaching points…

– The Hobbits live in a place called the Shire…

– and one of the beauties of their existence is its simplicity…

– they are insulated from outside influences…

– they tend their gardens – they get together for parties and gift-giving –

they love to smoke their pipes…

it’s the beauty of simplicity… –

what the Hobbits don’t know is that they have always been protected by outside leaders including Gandalf the Grey who is deeply concerned for their safety and well-being…
