  • Spring is the perfect time to clean, not just homes, but our spirit and life

    I love Springtime! With the weather being so nice over the last few days, it has gotten me to thinking about getting things cleaned up and straightened up. Yep, it’s time to clean out the garage and bring things back up out of the basement and get ready for some fun and sun-filled days. I love springtime! Got to get the lawn mower serviced and ready to go. Won’t be long until the grass will need to be cut. And then you have those ladies who put a very strong emphasis on spring cleaning in and around the house.

  • The Paschal Mystery turns “right” thinking upside down

    Jesus forever challenges us to think “outside the box.” He says to bear fruit the grain of wheat must first die. He says divine light is present in human darkness. He says to be a leader is to be a servant who washes feet. For Jesus, and for those who would follow him, “mystery” is not a problem to be solved but truth to be forever discovered and lived. This is the antithesis of soft, comfortable religion; it is rather quite gutsy, challenging, worth the journey of a lifetime.

  • Why I choose to believe the Bible

    There are many different answers to this question.  The one I will give you comes from 2 Peter chapter one. But first let’s see two answers to this question.

  • Churches can help by sharing your sorrow

    If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago. There is real sorrow in this world. I look around and see so many of my dear friends dealing with things like broken or strained relationships, the death of a loved one, a romantic breakup, or a family separation or divorce... All these cause great sorrow.

  • Share hope with others

    Although grace is free, hope recently cost me $8 on Etsy, the website where people sell their handiwork.

    For $8 I bought a wire bracelet that forms the word “hope,” which I’ve been wearing all week.

    Lately, hope has been my thing. I was talking with a tattoo artist for a story I’m working on and told him if I ever got a tattoo it would be the word hope in simple script, lower-case lettering, written very small, with a period at the end. (hope.)

  • Lessons from the table

    It is hard for us to appreciate the generosity of Jesus at the Last Supper.
