Instant in Season Or Not in Season

II Timothy 4:2: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season. I’m so tired after Presbytery. It was an inspiring time. So, I needed this little quiet time gem today. I spent time with Paul’s last words to Timothy …and to us. I’m always taken with last words spoken. Seems Shakespeare was too: [...]

Parcels

Colossians 3:3, “Your life is hid with Christ in God.” It hit me. I read this verse on a chilly morning as I thought about an Advent sermon in Santa Anna. And suddenly I received a parcel, a Christmas Parcel. For me, there’s nothing more exciting and special than sending or receiving Christmas parcels. It [...]

Christ Nearby

Galatians 6:14 “But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” This is the Durrow Cross from the 8th c. What do you see when you look at a cross? They are [...]

Noble Things are Difficult

With me in tow, my grandfather who had a trace of southern brogue would often empty one pen of cattle to go through a gate to another saying, “Enter ye in the strait gate…because strait is the gate and narrow the way.” I didn’t know if he was scolding me or entertaining me. Now I [...]

Weight Weight. Heavy.   All of our teachers and students are back in their routine.  It’s all that is on my mind.  My daughter is driving herself for the first time to daily 5:30 AM swim practice; I’m tortured.  My neighbors are both giddy and afraid with the thousands of students who have come back to [...]

Grow Up in Every Way

Ephesians 4:15a “grow up in every way.” We are worshiping together all over the world in the liturgical calendar we call “Ordinary Time” marked by the color Green. I learned in Sunday School that it is a time of “the unfolding of the new creation.” We purposefully invest time and resources in becoming new creations. [...]
