Clothes

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.Read More

What happened to my Palm Sunday?

Do I Really Have Time for This?

Time is a precious commodity.  Everyone is so busy rushing around.  Even retired people say they are so busy that they can’t imagine how they ever had time to go to work.  Maybe dialing back the busyness would be a helpful Lenten discipline. Read More

Follow Me and I Will Make You Fish For People

As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for people.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
