Salting the World

06 Feb, 2023

You are the salt of the earth. But what if salt were to lost its flavor? How could you restore it? It would be fit for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. ~ Matthew 5:13 If you were a first century person sitting on a hillside...

Better Together

The book of Acts documents some of the early development of the Jesus movement. In Acts 9:31 we hear that the small house churches the apostle Paul (still called Saul at the time) established throughout the region were at peace, building...

New Year, New Wine

09 Jan, 2023

So, my partner and I don’t really fall into the category of big New Year’s Eve celebrators. We didn’t stay up until midnight, we didn’t even watch the ball drop in New York. It’s been years since we’ve celebrated with friends. But this doesn’t...

Keeping Shepherds in Christmas

28 Nov, 2022

Did you know that there are two birth narratives of Jesus? One is in the Gospel of Matthew and one is in the Gospel of Luke. Time and tradition have merged many of the elements together, but if you take a look you'll see that they are two very...

Lessons of Autumn: Gratitude

21 Nov, 2022

The third lesson of autumn is gratitude. It rides on the coattails of an abundant mindset which reminds us that we have all we need within us – the spiritual strength, the wisdom (sometimes the wisdom to seek help), the tenacity and fortitude...

Lessons of Autumn: Letting Go

14 Nov, 2022

Autumn is ironically not only a season of harvest and abundance, but also a season of letting go, of change, of dying. This is so obvious in the dying leaves covering our ground, and the world changing to the stark colors of gray and brown. In...

Lessons of Autumn: Abundance

07 Nov, 2022

Every season has its energy and its lessons to teach us. The first lesson of autumn I'd like to discuss is abundance . Harvest festivals have been going on for thousands of years, celebrating the bounty of the land and gratitude for how Mother...
