Welcoming Love

21 Dec, 2020

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...

Radical Hope

Deep Listening to the Cycles of Life

27 Oct, 2020

In a climate where we experience four seasons, there is a rhythm to the cycles of life reflected yearly in the world around us. This cycle of birth, grown, decline and death offers us balance and wholeness, if we would simply pay attention and...

Deep Listening to Others

19 Oct, 2020

Spirituality is inherently relational. We are connected spiritually not only to the Divine Essence, but to one another. How we treat one another and how we listen to one another is not in a different compartment from listening to God. Jesus was...

Deep Listening to God

13 Oct, 2020

We’ve talked about deep listening to ourselves – to our bodies, our emotions and our self-talk. It’s exceedingly helpful to know ourselves well so that when we open ourselves to listen to God, we don’t get psyched out by our egos, our needs and...
