The Fog Lifts

Can we really move mountains? Gratitude has that kind of power, because it changes how we see everything — where the fog begins to lift, and we can make out the Goodness of God.

Gift of Love

What we do on the outside can change how we feel on the inside: generating gratitude, cultivating compassion, creating contentment. It is both joyful and difficult, because it is a gift of Love.


Patience can keep us from selfishness: rushing to hold resources out of fear. Patience can guard us against blaming others, where we never take the time to look at ourselves in the mirror. Patience cautions us against self-medication: seeking healing in unhealthy ways. Patience can keep us from giving up, shutting down, or closing off.

Waiting Rooms

Whether it is the walls of a waiting room or the days of a pandemic, we know what it feels like to live one day at a time. We have less to do, but more to manage. We are not as busy, but we are still exhausted. We realize: nothing is harder than when there…

A Rock

We are called to embody the Love that we see in Jesus the Christ: through the gifts of welcome, prayer, service, and kindness; the gifts of learning and teaching, listening and responding; the gifts of hospitality, generosity, encouragement, and humility, the gifts of reaching out, showing up, and standing alongside others.


Because God has met us in this place, we know that God will meet us in all of our places — wherever we are — because the lines between us are infinitely small.


You are a Child of God. You are called to the Ways of Jesus, and the Spirit of God binds us together wherever we are. We are in this boat together, and we are called to authenticity and Hope.
