Discovery in Exile

24 Aug, 2020

On our continuing journey with the Israelites and Moses in the wilderness, we find the people complaining about the lack of food. “Oh why didn’t God just kill us when we were fed and satisfied instead of dragging us all this way just to die of...

Faith in Exile

17 Aug, 2020

When Moses gets the call from God to free the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt he’s got a pretty comfortable life going: he’s married, probably has kids, has herds, a home, a community. There is nothing in his life that says to me that somehow...

Promise of Exile

10 Aug, 2020

As we continue our conversation about exile, I wanted to take a look at the promise of exile. If we backtrack a little in the book of Exodus, we find that when Yahweh appeared to Moses that Yahweh made a promise to the Hebrew people. “Now go...

Liminality of Exile

03 Aug, 2020

For the next six weeks, I want to talk about the concept of exile. For all practical purposes we’ve been exiled from our “normal” lives since COVID-19 affects absolutely everything we do – or don’t do - these days. As a framework for our...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 139

31 Jul, 2020

Well, folks, this is my last reflection as we head back into weekly virtual worship in two days and then in-person worship on September 13. My initial intent was to have a daily way to remain connected to each of you, while at the same time...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 138

30 Jul, 2020

I was raised by a master questioner, so I’m really good at asking questions. This has not always been seen as a positive thing. My high school friends sometimes referred to me as the “interrogator” for my questioning ability when they brought...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 137

29 Jul, 2020

We are fortunate enough to see a few hummingbirds zooming around our flowers every year. This year I decided to buy a feeder for them and hang it just off the back deck so we could see them better. Of course they prefer the flowers. Just for...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 136

28 Jul, 2020

I’m hoping that the karma judges give me a bit of a break today. I’m not my best when I’m feeling overwhelmed. It hurts me to say this (but recognition is the first step toward recovery, right?), but I’m feeling a bit in-over-my-head this week...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 135

27 Jul, 2020

I’ve completed four paintings in my watercolor class (again, not ready to share!) It’s a fairly informal class via Zoom every other week. We get started on a painting together and then finish on our own. As much as I try to make my painting...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 134

26 Jul, 2020

One of the ways I’ve embraced “isolating” at home is that I’ve been taking a watercolor class of sorts. My dad used to be a wonderful watercolor artist and I’ve always loved the medium in general, but never had the time or courage to try it...
