Be Still…

Psalm 46:10 …be still and know that I am God… What do you think of when you read that verse? Is it a call to find a corner, make yourself small and hope for the best? Is it a call to be quiet in worship?  …I’ve sometimes heard it used that way. Is it a […]

Taking the Stink

One of my aunts (I have/had about a dozen) got married later in life.  Because she was so… mature… when she got hitched she already had many of the things young newlyweds often only dream about… like a house of her own. Instead of selling it, she opted to put it up for rent, thinking […]

the Valley

I’m not sure I have ever been totally comfortable with the whole valley metaphor. We tend to talk about valleys as “dark times” or troubling times in our lives but have you ever given any thought to what a valley represents in nature?  In nature it’s the mountain peaks that are barren, rugged, harsh.  People […]

Sacrifice

Nothing shows how pagan we are like the sacrifices we make. I know that for many “sacrifice” sounds uber-religious but you can dispense with that notion right away.  We sacrifice because we are human.
