Keeping Our Center ~ Day 127

20 Jul, 2020

Honestly, I am grateful to have been a pastor during this time in history because I believe that this pandemic will have a larger affect than we realize on church, religion, and how we see God. Some of it good, and some of it sort of sad, in my...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 126

Robert Fulghum, in his book “From Beginning to End: The Rituals of Our Lives” writes, “Rituals do not always involve words, occasions, officials, or an audience. Rituals are often silent, solitary, and self-contained. The most powerful rites of...

Ritual. It’s sort of a stuffy word relegated to the grand, vaulted ceilings of churches. According to Google, a ritual is “ a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order. ” But ritual...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 124

17 Jul, 2020

Hugs. I think it’s hugs I miss the most. I know I am luckier than many people as I can still hug Julie and my kids. Okay, I confess, I hugged my dad, too… just once… but I was masked, turned my head and held my breath. It didn’t seem the same...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 123

16 Jul, 2020

So, yesterday morning when I was posting my reflection on “How do you experience God?” I was looking for appropriate images for our Facebook page and website. But, when I googled “experiencing God” all I got were images of someone’s book with...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 122

15 Jul, 2020

Here’s my question of the day: How do you experience God? Note that this is a completely different question than who is God to you? The second question is easily answered by regurgitating all the things we’ve ever been told about who or what...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 121

14 Jul, 2020

Often on our daily walks we pass a very pregnant, radiant mother and her precious, perhaps precocious three or four year old daughter, both of them decked out in floppy straw hats for sun protection. Sometimes grandma and/or dad are along, both...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 120

13 Jul, 2020

I’m back! It’s kind of funny… even as of last night I wasn’t sure that our little vacation had done what I was hoping it would do. After all, the point of getting away from work is to be refreshed, find new energy, rejuvenate one’s soul, and in...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 119

12 Jul, 2020

Baking bread. Cinnamon. A Christmas tree. A wind dried sheet. Lilacs. Baby flesh after a bath. The clean air after an August thunderstorm. The smell of grandma’s house. The smell of your own house. My father’s tobacco. My mother’s perfume,...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 118

11 Jul, 2020

Peter was a delicate, almost porcelain like, scrawny twelve-year-old boy. He did, however, have a Kennedy boy crop of thick gorgeous wavy reddish-brown hair. He had a sad look about him, wide-eyed but staring off. He never seemed sure of...
