May the Course Be With You!

Golf looks like a beautiful sport. You are outside . . . not a ton of people around you, quiet and serene, beautiful landscape, trees, water, even sand. Plus, you typically play when the weather is nice. I have ALWAYS wanted to play ...

The Tapes We All Have in Our Heads

Brené Brown, Ph.D., describes shame as “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.” So if that’s how we feel, the last thing we want to do is let others know, right? I ...

Ever see the “Enjoli” commercial?

A wise psychologist once said, “Everyone leaves childhood with wounds. It is inevitable because we are all imperfect people. Even when we do our best, we will make mistakes.” Society certainly doesn’t help us not live as people of shame. Over ...

Do you live from places of shame?

According to, Cancel Culture is “the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure.” We, as a culture/society, are in process of canceling things that ...

Flashbacks from Elementary School that Plague Us All

Do you remember when you were in elementary/middle school and “the invitation” would start circulating among your classmates? The “it” girl or guy would bring in their birthday party invites, and you’d be so excited to find one on your desk, ...

What if it means something more?

Can we stop long enough to think about maybe there is more? This week, as we journey through Holy Week and prepare for the crucifixion and resurrection, what if we would pause to ponder, “Maybe there is more?” For centuries we’ve understood ...

Stop to Stare

Do people ever stop and stare at you? Do you ever find yourself staring? It’s interesting, actually. In researching for yesterday’s message (that was completely off the rails in our online service, and we apologize profusely for that!) I was ...

Feeling the Energy!

We were walking through downtown Kampala, Uganda. Honestly, I didn't think anything of it. We had some tasks we needed to accomplish, we knew where we needed to go, and we were intentionally trying to get there quickly. We stopped to look at ...

Feeling “fed up”

Have you ever felt “fed up?” Like you couldn’t go any further?!! Because I state it pretty regularly, I get frustrated with “religiousness,” ….. especially when it puts rules over people. And in that realm, I carry certain prejudices. I know ...

Thanks and resources from Sunday

First, I apologize for the inconsistency in Lenten meditations. There are so many things going on . . . The Easter Event is in 1 week, and it is one of our two biggest outreach opportunities of the year! The staff has done an amazing job ...
