Keeping Our Center ~ Day 41

25 Apr, 2020

Benedictine monk, Brother David Steindl-Rast has said, “Silence is the opportunity to let yourself down into mystery – to let yourself be touched by mystery. It is like the joy of music, only a thousand times deeper and greater.” Even though we...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 40

24 Apr, 2020

So, I’ve been writing these for forty days now. Forty was a significant number in the Bible signifying a “long time.” It reminds me of Jesus spending forty days in the wilderness before beginning his ministry. Clearly it was a transformative...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 39

23 Apr, 2020

I interrupt your regularly scheduled reflection to bring you Whiny Thursday. Yes, you heard right. I’m whiny. Today I’ve had enough of social distancing. I miss all of you. I miss hugs and having meetings in person. I’m tired of gray, cold and...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 38

22 Apr, 2020

I find myself thinking a lot about all of the people who are dying alone, and the families who are unable to support or comfort their loved ones in person. I know that health care workers and chaplains are trying to help as best they can, but...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 37

21 Apr, 2020

Years ago I read Jan Karon’s wholesome novels about an Episcopal priest named Father Tim and the little town he served in. I honestly don’t remember too much about the books except a prayer that I learned. Each day when Father Tim went to the...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 36

20 Apr, 2020

How are you doing? I know all this isolating and staying at home is getting old. It’s hard at times not to be sluggish, down and unmotivated. I get it. I have my moments, too. This sounds cliché-ish, but it’s true that the perfect antidote is...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 35

19 Apr, 2020

A number of years ago I was teaching a class at church and trying to explain that doing something every day – like reading a devotional book, or meditating, or reading scripture, or journaling – just doesn’t come easy and naturally for me. I...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 34

18 Apr, 2020

Brother Joseph once told of being in the choir at Gethsemane, the monastery he had joined. As they chanted their Latin psalms one day, a baby’s cry gently echoed through the vast church. In those days, the monks were kept strictly out of public...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 33

17 Apr, 2020

So, here’s a tough one… what do we do when our faith fails? Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones and this has never happened to you. I happen to know that not everyone is as fortunate. Faith never fails when life is good, when our blessings are...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 32

16 Apr, 2020

The third word I used to describe my call early on in seminary was “faith,” which might seem odd coming on the heels of “skepticism.” But the opposite of faith is not doubt, it is certainty. Heaven knows I didn’t have any certainty when I...
