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...

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...
