Words to Live By

22 Feb, 2021


During our six Sundays of Lent, I’ll be preaching on six stories of Jesus from the Gospels of Mark and John, while using a quote from Marcel Proust to connect them all: “The only true voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,...

Prophetic Imagination

15 Feb, 2021


Last week we talked about using the spiritual gift of imagination to imagine ourselves: who we want to be and how we want to be remembered. This week I want to talk about using our imagination for the world… to invite us to the practice of...

Imagination as Spiritual Gift

08 Feb, 2021


No one ever really talks about it, but I firmly believe that imagination is a spiritual gift, inherent in each human being and affects everything we do and everything we are. In fact, according to John O’Donohue, the sacred duty of the...

When the Holy Child is born into our hearts There is a rain of stars A rushing of angels A blaze of candles This God burst into our lives. Love is running through the streets. ~ "Godburst" by Ann Weems Traditionally, the last week in Advent is...

Make Straight the Way

14 Dec, 2020


In the Gospel of John, known for its mystical language, John the Baptist describes the One who is coming as Light, as one who is at God’s side. I understand it to mean that Jesus was so connected to the Divine as to be filled with the Light and...

Holy Disruptions

07 Dec, 2020


This week I discovered that the story of Gabriel's visit to Zechariah and his subsequent loss of speech in Luke 1, is not in any lectionary cycle, and hardly any authors talk about it. The story of Zechariah getting his voice back when he names...
