A Covid Eastering

A Covid Eastering

One of my close friends shared her poem with me…”A Covid Eastering.”   While we are still in the Easter season, and still in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic, I thought it a poignant piece to share with all of you.  We do indeed continue to rise…and to witness the sheer sacrifice of first responders, health care workers, grocery…

Rainbow Callers

Rainbow Callers

The other day I was out for a walk and happened to see a rainbow.  It made me think about God’s love for us and the faithfulness of God’s covenant with us.  It made me think about something I had written some years back in my book, Soul Stretching: The Inner Landscape of an Ordinary Life.  In these days of…

Following the Star

Following the Star

When I was a little girl I used to wonder what the words “traverse afar” meant.  Every year we would sing that Christmas carol, “We Three Kings” about these wise men who followed a star.  Where’d they come from, how far was it, why did they make this long journey?  Of course, over the years I learned that these men…

A Wish of Peace in the New Year

A Wish of Peace in the New Year

During Advent we often hear in the Scripture readings from Isaiah, the prophet, who paints his vision for the future, a compelling vision that has often been named “the peaceable kingdom.”  He speaks of a vision of a new heaven and new earth; of life coming out of destruction; a shoot sprouts from the seemingly dead stump of the tree;…
