Turtle Like Tendencies

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the old adage, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  I get the heart of this message and agree with it, truly this world does not need another voice joining the chorus of negativity, whining, complaining or insult throwing.  Beyond that, I try to be a person that if I am speaking I am hoping it is to add to the equation and not subtract. A couple of months of [...]

Belonging

We are connected. We all have a place in this vast, beautiful tapestry called Humanity, and we are all connected through the sustaining threads of relationship and belonging. We become woven together in our tightly-knitted communities built on Story. We share our stories of where we are, where we have been, and where we long to go so that we can be known, be seen, and belong. Within all of us is a longing for connection and purpose. We yearn [...]

“The power of prayer is on the end of the hearer, not the speaker.” Jodi Detrick We sometimes feel that if we could just muster up a truly powerful prayer, then our prayers would be answered in the way that we desire. I don’t know about you, but I just love a happy ending. A story with a pretty bow, tying all the ends together. Neat and tidy. But this isn’t life here on earth. And sometimes we are simply in [...]

By Kristin Clouse   This week I have been reading Brother Lawrence's writings and I have found myself once again challenged. This challenge is one of those that goes to your core, to the core of who I am, what I believe, and has challenged me to do some deep introspective work within myself. In Practicing His Presence we read "I cannot imagine how a Christian can live a satisfied Christian experience without the practice of being in the presence of Christ. For my part, [...]

I Ruined Santa

By Julie Anderson I love the holidays. I really love the magic of Christmas especially through the eyes of a child...especially through the eyes of my children. It has always been fun to play into and "feed" the belief in Santa, the belief in something that we can't see. Children are a wonderful example of faith. All of that said, I "ruined" Santa for my children. A couple years ago my young children asked some questions about why Santa's giving [...]

Is shopping for an Easter Dress real shallow?

By |April 1st, 2013|Categories: Pondering|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Ponderings after Easter... Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. It represented new beginnings, hope for a future, and the joy that there is beauty, joy, and peace after death. For many, Easter means shopping for a new dress or new clothes. After speaking of the resurrected Christ and eternal life, talk of shopping may seem shallow. But maybe it isn't as shallow as one might think.
