Dream Small - 4-24-19

Dream Small I need to admit a problem I sometimes have. I tend to get to a little grandiose in my plans and ideas. Or perhaps you might say I go completely overboard. For example, instead of just planting a few tomato plants next to my house or in a couple of large planters, I want to dig up my entire front yard and put in a small farm of tomatoes, beans, squash, zucchini, etc. Of course, what inevitably happens is that nothing happens, or it gets sort of done and fails…and I am left buying tomatoes from the grocery store. Such was the case Sunday afternoon as I rode back home from church. Easter was amazing. To start the day by being greeted with the beauty and joy of the flowering cross. T

4-17-19 Midweek Musings "Holy Week"

For the last few years, I have been using Ann Weems’s book Kneeling in Jerusalem, Poetry for Lent and Easter as a seasonal devotional. For your journey this week, here is her poem “Holy Week.” Holy is the week… Holy, consecrated, belonging to God… We move from hosannas to horror with predictable ease of those who know not what they do.

Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he

Midweek Musings 4/3/19

I found out on Monday afternoon that the committee I was meeting with on Thursday wanted a Faith Statement. But no more than a couple of pages. My first thought was volumes have been written on about God and I get two pages! My second was that I was glad it was spring break so I could really wrestle with it. I submitted this to the committee this morning but felt that you needed to see it more than the committee so it will serve as our midweek musing. I do hope everyone saw the email about Harold’s move. He will be missed. I always appreciated his kind smile and how he would say he didn’t really need any candy as he slipped two pieces in his pockets! Though you would never know I just took a
