Refusing to Move – Why are we so angry?

Thursday, I went to a pharmacy to get my COVID booster. It was apparently the magic hour to do so because, in the time that I waited for my paperwork to get processed, 20 more people came to stand in line for something. There were many workers ...

This hurts me more than it hurts you!

“Now, that wasn’t so bad, was it?” Ever heard that? Or . . . “This hurts me more than it hurts you.” Really, how can you be so sure? Most likely those phrases are some you’ve heard throughout life. If you lived in the days of “spanking” by ...

Get Quiet in There!

When we are experiencing anxiety and worry, we have thoughts/voices running through our heads. What if we reframe those thoughts into prayer . . . what might happen? (Please note I am referring to the emotion and feeling of anxiety, not the ...

Duct Tape Cannot Fix Everything!

“We have a problem I need you to look at,” Tom said as I drove up. He came towards me carrying his bike frame, pointing to a crack on the shaft. “I noticed this just now when I was putting my bike away. I don’t know what to do about this, ...

Oh S***, I’m Stuck!

The power of words spoken together.

Thursday evening I had the privilege of joining together with Rev. Amy Coles, Lindsay Snipes, and Christopher Hampton for their wedding rehearsal. It was the desire of Chris and Lindsay for the wedding to truly be a "service of worship" so they ...

God Makes a Way and the Target Lady

When you buy several hundred dollars worth of candy for the West Halloween event, it causes cashiers to ask questions. It’s a great “lead-in” to tell people about West, etc. so I try not to “miss” those opportunities. I was inviting the ...

Hauntings of Failure and Pain

What is something that haunts you? We each have things that haunt us. Things we’ve done wrong and also the wrongs that have been done to us. If we aren’t careful, those are the things that cloud our minds and are huge obstacles to our being at ...

Feelings Can Become Behaviors

What makes you want to say “thanks?” Anne Lamott, in her book Help, Thanks, Wow shares that thanks is “gratitude for an unexpected grace.” Have you ever had someone “make” you say “thank you?” It isn’t effective, is it? It doesn’t really ...

Transformational Unexpected Gifts

Just a “normal gift” was so much more. Apparently, Oct. 10 was “Pastor Appreciation (PA) Day.” I wasn’t aware there was a specific Sunday for that, or if I knew, I blocked it out. This is not whining, but just stating facts. Trying to figure ...

Why Bother Saying “Thank You”?

Have you ever wondered why we should bother saying thank you to someone? I mean, what’s the point? Shouldn’t they know that we’re grateful? Especially if it’s somebody that we have a relationship with? For just a minute I’d encourage us to ...
