  • Balance leads to an abundant life

    God desires that we each live a balanced life and the finest picture of the balanced life in the scriptures is found in Revelation 10:1-2.

    “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire; and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth.”

  • ‘And’ is a mighty big word

    I believe it was Father Brian Hehir who some years ago observed that in the Catholic community “and” is a big word.   

    As I reflect on “and,” it seems to me that it is a mighty big word in all of life.

  • Face the new year with courage

    Be strong and courageous. Deuteronomy 32:6

    When you try something for the first time or something you’ve already failed at, you need courage.

    Remember learning to walk? First you tried standing on shaky limbs, smiled in short-lived triumph, fell down, cried in frustration and kept getting back up until you mastered the art of standing. Something inside you told you that you were meant for more than just lying in a crib.

  • We're all part of 'the system'

    Late 2009 provided another vivid experience of a close call with vulnerability. A young, well educated and well off young man from another country attached explosives to his inner clothing with the alleged intent of igniting it and bringing down an airplane with many people aboard.

    Since then there has been major the back-and-forth about whether “the system” worked or not. The good news: the bomb did not go off and all landed safely.
