Keeping Our Center ~ Day 55

09 May, 2020

I don’t know why our house gets so dusty, but it does. And it is really hard to motivate to clean when no one can come over anyway. Still, I have some standards and was running a cloth over some of the surfaces last week when Julie looked at me...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 54

08 May, 2020

Last week I came across an interesting quote by Alfred Korzybski, an American-Polish mathematician and philosopher who said, “The map is not the territory.” The spiritual extrapolation of this might be, “The Bible is not God” or “The Church is...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 53

07 May, 2020

So, I’m a little frustrated. I’ve been repurposing an old six-panel door (you know, the kind where all the panels run horizontal) into a bookshelf (if I ever finish I’ll share a picture with you). I sanded and used liquid sandpaper on the door...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 52

06 May, 2020

Never underestimate a few encouraging words. Years ago, on one of the most difficult days of my life, I received an unexpected voice message from a friend that simply said, “I know today is going to be tough, but keep your chin up and smile.”...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 50

04 May, 2020

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 49

03 May, 2020

Did we really know how important community was before we were forced to self-isolate? Before this virus, did we think about what it would mean to be suddenly separated from our church community, our card clubs, our book groups, our walking...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 48

02 May, 2020

Over all these years of pastoral ministry, one of the most important things I’ve discovered is that God is in the interruptions. When I had a church office to work out of (Sacred Journeys rents space on Sunday mornings, so I work out of my home...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 47

01 May, 2020

I looked around my office for inspiration yesterday and pulled a new book out of my “books to read” pile called “The Art of Is,” by Stephen Nachmanovitch, an internationally known improvisational violinist. And the book is wonderful! This is...

Keeping Our Center ~ Day 46

30 Apr, 2020

You are enough. That’s always been another consistent sermon theme for me. You know they say that pastors really preach to themselves, well, it’s true. This is a message I constantly need to hear. There are probably a gazillion reasons why we...
