A Note from Home – February

Several years ago I was invited to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting to help celebrate a church member’s 25th year of sobriety.  It was just a regular meeting, but I was so impressed with the openness of the sharing and the deep needs that were expressed and cared for in that small...

A Note from Home – January

Marguerite Gode wrote a poem that describes this time of year all too well: After all of the hub-bub of Christmas is over and with a certain relief we look for things to go back to normal. It’s nice to know that there’s a promise to Christmas that lasts beyond the broken toys and...

A Note from Home – December 2014

Immanuel, God with us.  And the sign of God’s presence with us…a baby born in a cowshed.  What a sign!  Today you don’t need a degree in advertising to know that if you want to make a good sign, you’ve got to make it BIG and plant it in a conspicuous spot by a crossroads...

A Note from Home – August 2014

After 8 movies, 3 seasons on TV, several spin-offs, and more reruns than a dog has fleas, “Star Trek” has become a household word.  The adventures of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise have caught the imagination of a whole generation of Americans with...

A Note From Home – July 2014

Woe to you, for you build monuments for the prophets – the very ones your own people put to death! Luke 11:47   Last week I came across a piece of history: words written back in 1855 by the great, black editor and abolishionist, Frederick Douglass. They are harsh,...

A Note From Home – June 2014

“So God created man in his own image,  in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Ever been totally knocked over by something you read?  I was reading in Robert Hick’s book, The Masculine Journey, these words:  “In ancient cultures, images were personal...
