Honoring our Veterans

I invite you to read this meditation this morning as we honor Veterans on this Veteran's Day.

Til You Can’t

This week at the Country Music Awards Cody Johnson won his first CMA for the music video, "Til You Can't." Perhaps it is so popular right now because of the message it carries. A message that can resonate with each of us. Even if you don't ...

Do no harm.

“This looks and sounds really, really familiar. And my stomach really hurts.” I found myself thinking that in one of our last Q & A sessions on Tuesday, Amy was visiting the 14 different delegations of the Southeastern Jurisdiction and ...

It’s an election year! Who are you voting for?

Gotcha! I really don’t want to know. And most likely you don’t want me to want to know because one thing the folks of West have appreciated over the years is that we “think and let think.” We expect and hope our politicians will be people of ...

Burning the candle at both ends . . .Greeting from the other side of the world!

How interesting, the timing of it all. Burnout. This is a message suggested by leadership, and the more we talk about it as a community, the more we realize it is so pertinent and relevant for where we are. Thursday, Dawn and I left for ...
Would you make a good contestant on “Naked and Afraid”?

Would you make a good contestant on “Naked and Afraid”?

You have to be able to start a fire. Naked and Afraid is a bizarre yet fascinating show. Each episode follows the lives of two survivalists who meet for the first time. Once they meet, they must become naked and survive a stay in the ...
Ever Feel Like…Throwing up your middle finger to the world?

Ever Feel Like…Throwing up your middle finger to the world?

Do you wake up ready to hit the ground running? Or . . . Do you wake up and think, “Oh my gosh, I certainly am not looking forward to today.” Recently, a colleague/friend said, “I just feel like throwing my middle finger to the world.” I ...
