The Abundant Life

I admit I have a horrible memory. I can remember people and names but struggle desperately to remember what I have read, heard, or seen. Sometimes, it makes life more interesting and fun; I can reread books or watch movies again like I’m watching them for the first time. Other times, not remembering things is torture.Read More


Let us Remember

If you’re like me, we are ready to wrap up the season of Lent. It has been six weeks since Ash Wednesday and as much as I have enjoyed our midweek Lenten services, Wondering on Wednesdays, all-congregation book study, and more contemplative time, I am greatly anticipating Sunday morning.Read More

Never Give Up

“It’s going to be ok.” These words, or a version of them, are frequently shared in our lives. Perhaps I hear them more often because of my line of work or because I’m the “worrier” in the family, but I have an inkling that many of us encounter them regularly.Read More

Let Your Light Shine

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:16Read More

What do you count as blessings in your life?

My list includes good family and friends, shelter, food and warmth on these cold days, and access to good medical care.

 

But sometimes it’s hard to find the blessings in the midst of the dark places in our lives. Read More
