DO YOU TRUST ME? HOME COMMUNION 4.25.2021

What do you believe about God/Universe/Wholeness/Divinity/Spirituality? Today’s Home Communion focuses on the Holy Love, the Life-Giver, the Breath and Bread of Life. I invite you to join me:

BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday

There are wounds in each of us, some very deep and very painful. These wounds can’t be healed by a wag of the finger or a smack across the head or by yelling, shaming, blaming. But they can be healed! I have seen people let go of the grip these wounds have on them. IContinue reading “BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday”

THAT’S GRACE Y’ALLHome Communion4/11/2021

How does Easter change our lives? For me, it is trusting in the Power that gave Jesus life after death, that restored people to their personhood, that forgives our Sin and pulls us out of those pits of despair, guilt, unworthiness, self-pity, and all that stuff that traps us from being who we were meantContinue reading “THAT’S GRACE Y’ALLHome Communion4/11/2021”

LETTING GO 4/9/2021 FRIDAY

I love GRACE! I love that faith tells me that God’s mercies are fresh and new each morning. I love that grace means forgiven and restored. It is a little harder for me to not only ponder, but to also give away all the stuff, physical, mental, emotional stuff that I have accumulated over theContinue reading “LETTING GO 4/9/2021 FRIDAY”

Mercy Me4/7/2021Wednesday

Sociologists have been calling out for a change in our penal system for years. I remember studying it in the late 1970’s. Currently, neuroscience has been studying images of the brain and finding that good hugs help heal trauma, including PTSD, that shame shuts the brain down, that thinking positive does actually make life betterContinue reading “Mercy Me4/7/2021Wednesday”

Who are these people?April 1, 2021Maundy Thursday

This Disciple whom Jesus loved, this Disciple who is going to betray Jesus, who are these people? I had a professor in college who suggested that we are meant to place our names in their places. We are the one Jesus loved. We are the one to betray Jesus. We are the ones Jesus gaveContinue reading “Who are these people?April 1, 2021Maundy Thursday”

Positive Accentuation3.30.2021Tuesday

I invite you to accentuate the positive, offer forgiveness, believe in transformation, to see the best in others, to open yourself to Love that will not let you go. My morning prayer today:

GOD CAN HOME COMMUNION 03/21/2021 Down Syndrome Day also

Our 21 chromosome boy creates many opportunities for me to grow, to learn new ways of communication, and to remember some I already knew but haven’t used in quite a while. Sometimes I am more focused on my lack of abilities rather than on the One who Provides. My pondering today leads me to prayerContinue reading “GOD CAN HOME COMMUNION 03/21/2021 Down Syndrome Day also”

YOU WANT ME TO DO WHAT?3.19.2021Friday

Forgiveness can be so hard. Not only for others, but also for ourselves. Both are so necessary. Scientific research on human brains is showing the disconnections in brains as a result of trauma and shame. My prayer today is for help in forgiving ourselves and others:

Forgive Those Greenies3/17/2021 Wednesday

When I was growing up, our school mascot was the Greenies, I guess as in mean and Green. The school has since changed their mascot. No one seem to know what a Greenie was. Now that I think of so many things that are not understood if you are not part of a particular culture,Continue reading “Forgive Those Greenies3/17/2021 Wednesday”
