Speaking to the Soul: Aroma

The aroma of knowing God is us. It is us being who we most deeply are. This smell is our passionate commitment to the world, our willingness to die for love, our tender hearts and our steely souls.

Speaking to the Soul: Sleeping Through It

The gospel text for this morning has inspired me to keep my thoughts brief and get a bit more sleep. In today’s gospel, the disciples find Jesus infuriatingly asleep on their boat as they try to cope with the turmoil of wind and waves. While they were full of fear and worry, there was Jesus “in the stern, asleep on the cushion.”


The Magazine: Selma… “Negotiate. Demonstrate. Resist.”

Keep in mind this film is not a documentary and what it reminds us is very timely. Not only is it released near the national holiday set aside to remember Dr. King, but current national headlines speak of issues of race and use/abuse of power that are yet to be addressed in our country. Perhaps God will bring together other gifted leaders to shed light on present injustice?
