Act in Love

Act in Love

“Rather than worrying about hand sanitizer and toilet paper, we can take pride in finding safer ways to deliver food to people who are hungry.  We can bug our town councils about providing places to shelter for those experiencing homelessness. We can reach out by phone and computer to our friends and family who are isolated.  We can send money to organizations which are safely providing health care, food and shelter to people who have been infected. We can enjoy walking outside and can take photos to share with those who can’t get out.  In millions of ways we can be creative, joyous, and active in love.”

Transfiguration

Transfiguration

“There is a vast wealth of understanding we can take away from this Transfiguration story, enough that each time we engage with it, we will learn and grow. Today what I am hearing is that whatever I want to do, wherever I want to go, I ought to turn my attention to how God has engineered the experience as an opportunity to be known to me.”

Keeping One Another Human

Keeping One Another Human

“Jesus was always unequivocally supportive of those without voice or place in their communities — lepers, tax collectors, beggars, people who were unwhole.  He healed the broken, never making them feel as if they had no dignity. He restored outcasts to their communities. He invited new understanding of what it means to be a neighbor to everyone, no matter what their differences.”

Being Light

Being Light

“I get angry, gossip and manipulate until I catch myself at it and stop. It is with struggle that I give up my grudges and ask God to forgive the grudges God could carry against me.  I am only now, at age 68, beginning to see that noticing beauty, joy, and gratitude is seeing Christ present in the world.”

The Light of Christ and Community

The Light of Christ and Community

“We Christians all have one thing in common; we have met Christ in one way or another, and the encounter has moved us to make some transformation in our lives.  Whether that is as simple as beginning to go to church on a regular basis or as complex as choosing and sticking with a Rule of Life, it invites us into a spiritual community.”
