A STITCH IN TIME – Getting to the core to do the proper thing the proper way.

2019-06-26T12:51:39-04:00

The watches you see belonged to my grandfather (left - with a new strap) and my father (right). They now belong to me. One day they will belong to one of my sons. What is amazing to me is that these vintage watches still keep good time - even though they are wind-up [...]

G_D – Your spiritual “flywheel”.

2019-06-26T12:45:45-04:00

The other day, I was in a discussion with one of our Carleton Memorial groups that meets monthly. We were talking about whether or not the “proofs for God” were useful, in a practical sense. The short answer was “maybe”. But the actual answers are not the point. The process to get to the [...]

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS IN FAMILY AND COMMUNITY – Let the empty chair speak.

2019-06-26T12:12:44-04:00

There is a Jewish tradition of leaving an empty chair for the prophet Elijah at the Passover meal - known as a Seder. It involves a cup of wine, a message of liberation and redemption and the returning of Elijah to his people. A Seder meal also is rich in tradition and the [...]

AN INSIDE LOOK AT CMUC
A new kind of church parking lot meeting.

2019-06-26T11:50:31-04:00

Forgive me for writing a community-centric blog. It’s just that I am so proud to be serving the churches I serve. (Sometimes on Sunday, when I pray with choir, I leave my mic on so everybody get’s an inside look at the choir, who consistently deliver in the background. It's a humble form [...]

UNBUTU
“I am because we are.”

2019-04-12T12:01:34-04:00

Unbutu is a southern African philosophy that says that we become people through other people. Never in my lifetime have these words seemed so far off, and not because they come from Africa. I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be negative. But it’s true. Ours is a very self-centered society. Collectively, our hearts [...]

THE POWER OF THE STEP BY STEP JOURNEY – Friends and faith and regained self.

2019-02-14T12:58:09-04:00

This is the first week I can say that I have felt like myself for a while. It’s not like that isn’t normal. Losing two parents in five months has been a lot to process. I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has reached out to me and my family. It has [...]

THE DIFFICULTY IN DEALING WITH YOUR BEING DIFFICULT. Making the merry-go-round stop.

2019-01-18T10:20:02-04:00

Have you ever felt like that person singing in the choir who doesn’t clue in that it’s not the choir singing off key, it’s them? Or being the one person who’s marching off time wondering why everybody else has got it wrong?I must say, there are days when I feel like that person. And, [...]

HOME and THE HEART. A prayer for Christmas.

2019-01-18T12:19:43-04:00

Jesus once said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Some scholars believe that when he said it, this was a new thought in the world. Regardless, today it’s such a powerful image that it is taken as a universal truth. And as I sit here in my office, [...]
