Dancing with the Spirit

Okay … it’s December 31st and at 7 a.m. I was in a Swedenborg Church (check THAT one out … fascinating reading) in  Canada, DANCING.  Two things are very wrong with this statement:  7 a.m. on a day when I’m not working and when the temperature was WAY too cold for anyone to want to be out; and DANCING!  I don’t dance…

It’s Time for Hope on Mt. Hope

  Last year South Church initiated an Annual Campaign:  Hope on Mt Hope. Hope on Mt Hope funds are used for meeting the needs of individuals and families without regard for race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, handicapping condition, belief system or political affiliation.  They are NOT part of the operating budget for South Presbyterian Church. As 2014 draws to a close,…

Are you Ready?

Well, it’s almost here. Can you feel it? The night we wait for all year. Children dream dreams and older folks remember earlier celebrations. With all that’s going on, though, let’s not forget that this is a time for birthing Peace, Joy, and Love in our lives. Not easy given the world events what they are today … but things were bad when…

Slow to Impulse Power

August 8, 2010 Somebody asked me the other day how the move to the Meadows was coming along and I found myself absolutely stymied. My brain has turned to mush; I have no command of the English language any more.  Really. Do you? And then it  dawned on me:  I feel like the Starship Enterprise looks when it’s coming out of warp speed.…

On the Threshold of Tomorrow

We are truly on threshold of tomorrow … not just because it’s nearing midnight, but because tomorrow we will hold our last Sunday morning worship in our sanctuary that was built in 1926. “How can you feel so good about this?” I was recently asked. And my honest answer is: What’s not to feel good about?  We would have run out of money…

Don’t Ever Give Up …

7/18/14 I guess it was inevitable. Sooner or later exhaustion would catch up with me. And with exhaustion usually comes a sense of ineptitude and discouragement. So I wasn’t too surprised when  I found myself feeling those things today … those and a little anxiety that  all of the details might not work out as we hope they will in the next few weeks. But…

Ornamental Grasses vs. Fine Fescue

(7/17/14)   Y’know, there’s just something about ornamental grasses. I LOVE them. They remind me of my hair when I’m on vacation and don’t have to look too clean cut. 🙂 Ornamental grasses … I guess they’re called that because they’re not real grasses … they just LOOK like grasses. Of course that’s not true. They ARE real. But they’re not what…
