Old Truth vs New Life

In worship as we finished up the “i Quit” message series I shared an argument I’d had with my therapist. Over the time I’d spent in therapy he’d helped me identify that I have “fear of abandonment.” Because of the situations I’ve faced in my ...

Chaos vs Order

Some of us live for routines. We like unambiguous answers and we thrive in certitudes. However, that isn’t always possible. And perhaps in our Lenten faith journey, if we would allow our certitudes to be challenged, we will find that we ...

“It’s On Them! Not Me!”

“Well Andrea, I’ve probably screwed up.” My clergy friend explained he’d frustrated a church member so much so that she’d left the church. The first time she met with him he heard her concerns. She felt like the people on her ministry team ...

Does This Make Me Look Fat?

I’m not sure if guys do this, but some girls, myself included, do. “Does this make me look fat?” Recently I asked a friend that question as we were standing in the middle of a wedding reception. “Really?” she responded. “You are asking me that ...

The 140 mph Car Ride

Last year right before Annual Conference (the yearly Methodist Conference at Lake Junaluska) I went with some friends to South Carolina, which involved a two-hour road trip. We were driving back late at night after a day of pottery making and ...

Selfies

Selfies Monday, February 10, 2020 “Why are we filtering our selfies?” Taking selfies in Uganda is a pretty big thing. The kids LOVE to have their pictures made. They will gather around you in large masses, smile huge smiles, and as ...

Around 2 am last year on the Sunday before Christmas, there was a large crash in the family room of my home. It jarred me awake and then I waited, trying to figure out what would cause noise of that magnitude.  After the initial crash there ...

Unplugged, Uncut, and Uncensored

We really have created a place of grace.  It was bound to happen. At some point it was inevitable that we’d let something slip. Perhaps you’ll be disappointed (and I’ll apologize on the front end) but your pastor does use a few four letter ...

There are two types of families . . .

“There’s two types of families, dysfunctional and those that think they are not.”  “I just wish we could be like the _________ family.”  Words I heard a gentleman share with me years ago as he was lamenting about the estrangement of his ...

Seeing Love Through an Empty Snickers Wrapper

There was a homeless gentleman walking down the sidewalk in a large city when he noticed what appeared to be a Snickers Bar lying there. He bent over to pick it up and upon doing so the wrapper crushed in his hand. There was no Snickers Bar in ...
