  • Water in the Desert

    And so it goes…life on this planet is not possible without water. Same goes for external life. Baptism IS necessary for salvation. Water events, both in scarcity and abundance, require action and an enormous amount of reflection. It’s ironic that water is also reflective by nature and thus demands our attention; much like the human […] Read more

  • Marriage Blessed and Ordained by God Alone

    We find ourselves, as Godly people of faith, enmeshed in another social upheaval regarding marriage.  First, the Bible and church tradition has consistently defined marriage, Holy Matrimony, as between a man and a women. Why? Because man and woman were created for each other.    Societies since the beginning of time have adopted roles for […] Read more

  • Giving (and Receiving) Every Day…Not Just Tuesday

    I write today on Tuesday, November 29, 2022. Designated a ‘Giving Tuesday’ that began a decade ago to raise awareness of the need to enact radical generosity in the hearts and souls of people. This movement has grown to become global in scope, while remaining locally focused. If you are like me, your inbox and […] Read more

  • God’s Provisions for Our Time in the Wilderness

    Reflection on Mark 1:9-15 In this Gospel passage, Mark tells the story of Jesus’ Baptism and immediate departure into the desert wilderness where Jesus will reside and be tempted by Satan. Jesus was led into the wilderness by the very Spirit of God, to a place where death was a very real possibility. He is […] Read more

  • Transforming the Continuum of Care

    Unless you have been living in a cave for the past 10 months…the global pandemic has resulted in inequitable panic, concern, and impulsive reactions among government officials and the ‘health care’ community. The reactions and fear have not been unfounded. Millions worldwide have been impacted and many have died as a direct result of the […] Read more

  • Christ The King

    We don’t often talk of kings much anymore in the US. After all we have been involved with this experiment called a democracy for a couple of centuries. In this form of government, there are no kings and are extensive guards and laws to prevent even our elected folks from acting like a king. So […] Read more

Time for an Xchange – the same old won’t do anymore!

Welcome to A New Blog on an old theme – Reconciliation!

Biblical in scope and command, but so forgotten in the realm of reality – family, work, politics.

Reconciliation is simply a path to exchanging one state of being for another, more fruitful state of being – particularly in relationship with our environment and one another.  Reconciliation involves not just substituting or masking one thing for another – but true exchange where the ‘new thing’ fills the space – spiritual and physical – of the one that previously resided there.  The ‘new thing’ restores and is totally new – with no link or resemblance to the old thing.  It is an exchange of both time and space – transcending both for a new reality.

Welcome to the ramblings of an eclectic Christian who has lived in a box and gone dumpster diving with the homeless; who has traveled to Central America smack in the middle of Civil Wars and unrest; who enjoys skydiving and white water rafting as well as sitting in pristine wilderness; and who teaches and preaches to transform minds hoping that somewhere in the midst of my ego-centric words the Gospel of Jesus Christ finds it’s way out.
