How to make a Sabbath Box…

By |August 17th, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

In one of my favorite books on Sabbath, Wayne Muller writes: “Sabbath requires surrender. If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop, because our work is never completely done. With every accomplishment there arises a new responsibility… Sabbath dissolves the artificial urgency of our days, because it liberates us from the need to be finished.” I ask myself, Do I remember weekly, daily, hourly, who my source is? Am I in charge [...]

I am a Women of White Privilege…

By |June 22nd, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I am a woman whose heart seeks justice, equality, and dignity for every human being. Over the past few months though I have felt my voice go silent as I became paralyzed by the continued acts of violence and discrimination enacted against my African American friends, Hispanic sisters, and Muslim neighbors. The divide seems to be widening and the fear intensifying as people take their corners. In my silence, I have taken action. In my silence, I have decided to [...]

The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and our World

Forgiving is hard. Sometime it feels impossible. If you have been hurt, your pain is real. Forgiving doesn’t excuse bad behavior. It doesn’t accept blame. Forgiveness frees you from the chains of bitterness and disease that the hurt has cause you. Forgiveness is freedom. The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and our World, written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chair of The Elders, and Chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, along [...]

By Angela Craig Last week on Facebook, I noticed 139 people had something to say about you. It started with a question from Dr. Beth Grant… Question asked by Dr. Beth Grant (March 15, 2016): Women minister friends, what is your best advice for younger women called to ministry? (One sentence please!) I'll be with many younger women within the next couple months and would love to share your wisdom. Thanks so much! Maybe when you read Dr. Grant’s question, [...]

February Book Review: Love & War

By |February 25th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

By Angela Craig When I was in my 20’s and looking for a spouse, I thought, "If I find the right person, life will be perfect and we will live happily ever after." But the truth is, no matter how well you are matched to your spouse, no matter how many values, dreams, and hopes you have in common, marriage is the hardest challenge you will ever face. There is NO ONE COUPLE who goes through married life that doesn’t [...]

Bringing Peace on a Cold Winter’s Night

By Angela Craig It was a cold winter’s night before Christmas. The wind wrestled with the trees as the rain beat the ground like the little drummer boy beat his drum. I was on my way from my last appointment of the day to pick up my kids for their afternoon activities. Racing the clock to get the boys to their activities on time, I decided to avoid the Christmas shopper’s traffic and take the back highway home. Little did [...]

I want to visit Snowflake Lane, the gingerbread houses [...]
