Keeping Our Center ~ Day 62

16 May, 2020


Yesterday I talked about God as a verb. Today I’m wondering if we all shouldn’t shed the notion of ourselves as nouns, things, objects. We are human beings after all. English anthropologist, Gregory Bateson, was fond of saying, “Stamp out all...

Does my life have meaning? I imagine this is a question we’ve all wrestled with once or twice. It is a profoundly deep question. But I didn’t realize it was a flawed question until I read something that Parker Palmer wrote. Basically, he said...

Yesterday I was getting ready to cook some Italian chicken sausage on the grill for lunch. I set the plate of sausage down for a minute to go in search of the lighter, I wasn’t gone for more than a minute and when I returned two of the four...

This time of quarantining, or staying at home, puts a whole new perspective on Anne Frank and her family who spent 761 days in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam during World War II. 761 days! Can you imagine? No sunshine on your...

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

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

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...

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.”...
