August 2, 2020 ‘Tis the season for choosing our country’s leadership once again. Time to assess those who have led us in the past, those who hope to lead us into the future, and discern exactly who is THE ONE. Thankfully, since I don’t have cable TV, I’m not subjected to the barrage of political commercialsContinue reading “If God Vetted Our Leaders”
July 25, 2020 Forgiveness: such a powerful piece of our faith! All we need to do is to confess our sins and ask the Lord for forgiveness and we are absolutely and completely forgiven. What a wonderful truth! As we hear so often: we are forgiven and free to start over. Period. All we have to doContinue reading “The One Thing We Will Always Have Without Asking…..”
July 18, 2020 Have you ever seen those shows (my mind goes immediately to the old black and white Twilight Zone episodes) when something confusing is going on and suddenly everything moves to freeze-frame? Why freeze-frame? Because everything in the episode was in an active state of chaos or really scary at a bare minimum; someone – usually the mainContinue reading “Freeze-frame Walkabout”
July 11, 2020 Sometimes when we are in distress, looking for solutions to things that are threatening us, we look for complicated answers and beyond those people who are actually able to help us; beyond them, that is, if their solutions don’t suit our agendas and don’t feed our egos. It’s remarkable – Let me tellContinue reading “Such a Simple Thing”
July 5, 2020 Who are You? This was the question the stoned Caterpillar on the mushroom asked Alice in Lewis Carroll’s, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice didn’t know the answer, and quite frankly, it really didn’t seem to matter to her much. She knew who she was when the day began in her family’s garden as sheContinue reading “A Caterpillar and a Tornado”
June 27, 2020 Recently, someone came to my home for an appropriately social distanced and masked meeting. The person had never met me or been to my home before. When he arrived, he was a bit tentative about which door to go to – the front or the side – as he told me later. His uncertaintyContinue reading “Weeds, Broken Pavers, and Sinkholes”
June 21, 2020 Ever hear the expression “be careful what you wish for”? The inference is that when we wish for something, we might not be completely aware of what is expected of us if the wish comes true. When I was a child I wished for a pony just about every day for a year. IfContinue reading “Be careful what you pray for!”
June 14, 2020 I’ve had many zoom conversations over the last several weeks that spoke in terms of hopelessness, helplessness, and frustration: And that’s just the tip of the conversational iceberg! So many challenges and concerns identified and labeled. So much anger. So much name calling. So much blame. So many conversations ending in frustratedContinue reading “But Who?”
June 7, 2020 I am tired. No, not just tired but downright bone weary. Why? I am glad you asked. I am tired of what is happening among those God created in the divine image. Bone weary. I am tired of men speaking for women and women speaking for men – assumptions filtered through theContinue reading “Tired of Assumptions”
May 31, 2020 Political and religious unrest. Heavy taxes. Wide disparity between rich and poor. Homelessness. Unemployment. Disease. Struggles between local and national authorities. Oppression of minority groups. This is a small descriptor of life in the first century Roman Empire – a descriptor of life in Jerusalem and its surrounding towns and villages. AContinue reading “It Takes More!”
