In Solidarity with Jesus and His Mission

  • 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

  • Back to The Future

    With future in front of us I begin anew with this blog.  The Delorean is ready to go and programmed.  We await the future with anxious anticipation. Read more

  • Laura’s Plant

    With all the ‘remembering’ of 9-11-01, I find that I grow weary and sometimes forget what it is I am supposed to remember.  All the getting older jokes aside…it really un-nerves me.  John Patton, in his book Pastoral Care in Context, talks about ‘re-membering’ people and events back into your life – not to make […] Read more

  • AT WAR

    It’s hard to talk of peace these days. We are at war with ourselves, our families, our nation, and our planet. We pray for peace, act for peace, and even fight for peace. Whatever sensibilities we claimed to have had regarding peace appears to have vanished. So is the absence of peace – my perception […]

  • To Whom Shall Go?

    At this very moment I am uncertain on what tomorrow will bring. I am confident I know who holds the future. It’s not a matter of proving or disproving this hypothesis, rather is it confirmed in, with, and under a radical, trusting faith as a baptized child of God. The norm of social discourse in […]

  • Impunity Does Not Imply Immunity

    ‘Another World’ and ‘Days of Our Lives’ filled my noontime agenda at one time in my life.  ‘Another World’ is no longer on-air so I look forward to an hour catching up with the ‘Days of Our Lives’ from time to time.  The main characters are mostly the same, the younger ones are new to […]

  • Bondage of the Will

    So it goes…at 12:01 am on 6/17/2011 we filed into the 2D version ($4 cheaper than 3D) of Green Lantern.  The story was familiar, the 21st Century Hollywood twist was not.  Action packed, thrills of dogfights with F35’s and the classic good v. evil.  In the end the super hero defends the planet, reconciles with […]
