Keeping Our Center ~ Day 31

15 Apr, 2020

“Skepticism” was the second word I used to define my call back in seminary (which, by the way, was about 26 years ago – yikes!). Let’s just say I’ve always made a great Doubting Thomas or Devil’s Advocate, because I’m skeptical (and often...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 30

14 Apr, 2020

I’ve been digging through some old paper work and I found some notes and reflections from seminary that I thought you might find amusing, if not interesting. I took a class in seminary called Empowerment. It was supposed to help us understand...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 29

13 Apr, 2020

Here in Wisconsin the “day after” Easter has dawned cold, cloudy and exceedingly windy, and as I write this I’m watching our darn dog eating something I’m sure she shouldn’t be in the back yard. It’s probably what is left of the baby bunny’s...

Easter Sunday

12 Apr, 2020

This is a weird Easter. There is no gathering of the community in our Easter finery. No music, no fanfare, no Hallelujah Chorus and goosebumps, no hugs and coffee hour. There will be no Easter dinners, no egg hunts and no golfers. We’ll do our...

Saturday of Holy Week

11 Apr, 2020

Jesus took the wine and said, “It is finished.” (John 19:30) Jesus was killed. He did as much as he could to bring a revolution of compassion, inclusion, and justice, to religion and to the world. Then he died. Much too soon. “It is finished,”...

Friday of Holy Week

10 Apr, 2020

“Abba, into your hands I commit my spirit.” (Luke 23:46) On this Day of Tears, while we dwell in the midst of death, these words are the way to life. With these words, we’re given assurance that as Jesus released his mortal body, his spirit was...

Thursday of Holy Week

09 Apr, 2020

“I am thirsty.” (John 19:28) As the story goes, just before Jesus took his last breath on the cross, he proclaimed that he was thirsty, so someone soaked a sponge with sour wine and touched it to his mouth. Well, sour wine isn’t exactly dregs,...

Wednesday of Holy Week

08 Apr, 2020

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34) Honestly, I so love Jesus for this moment. He had been through a week of hell – rejection, betrayal, beatings, humiliation, and the incomprehensible pain of crucifixion. No wonder he...

Tuesday of Holy Week

07 Apr, 2020

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Here is your son.” Then he said to his disciple, “Here is your mother.” (John 19:26 – 27a, The Inclusive Bible ) Well, my first very irreverent...

Monday of Holy Week

06 Apr, 2020

Today begins our Holy Week journey to Easter. In the four Gospels combined, there are seven last phrases attributed to Jesus before his death. These are often used for sermons and devotions, so I thought I’d use six of them for our reflections...
