Sharing a Thanksgiving Reflection

Sharing a Thanksgiving Reflection

I read this reflection today by Mark Clark, from Community Works, Inc.  They always put out some really good articles.  This one that came today is a bit longer than most of the blogs I write, but it is well worth the read. Reflecting on Thanksgiving in a Time of Pandemic by Mark Clarke “A great house is open to…

The Edges of Understanding

The Edges of Understanding

So many things have been happening in these past few weeks that have captured my attention and been swirling around in my mind.  Our election results were finally in, almost all of them, and Joe Biden was declared the President-Elect.  The current President has not yet conceded even though there seems no clear path to his staying on in the…

Religious Life Alive and Well

In these days when many people think of religious life as fading away or of diminishment, it is good to share stories of new life in community.   The Sisters of Divine Providence in Texas have five very good reasons to celebrate!   Amid the COVID-19 pandemic spiking in the San Antonio area, the Congregation of Divine Providence (CDP) celebrated life.

Cemetery Graces and Surprises

Cemetery Graces and Surprises

It’s not often that I visit a cemetery.  I’ve never really been the kind of person that goes there after the funeral and burial are over, because after all, the person isn’t really there.  Physical remains, yes, but their spirit is enjoying the face of our Provident God.  Why write about this?  Because going to the cemetery was both a…

Music-the Universal Language

Music-the Universal Language

One of the bright spots in this pandemic crisis time has been the recordings of music with people participating via Zoom from all over the country and the world!  Music is a universal language that crosses cultures, ages, and all types of people.  It’s about the emotions it creates, I think, rather than only the words or the melody.  Music…

Mirror of Jesus’ Life

Mirror of Jesus’ Life

Last Friday we remembered the horror of September 11, 2001 and the 3000+ people who lost their lives in the attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the plane that went down in Shanksville, PA.   We also remembered the heroes from that day, the fireman and first responders who ran into the burning buildings to save people’s lives, and…
