Bible Teaching Notes

2:1 If [Gr. first class conditional statement: should be understood to mean “since” or “in view of the fact”] you have any encouragement [Gr. “paraklesis” can also mean exhortation, comfort] from being united with Christ, if any comfort [may be rendered “consolation”] from his love, if any fellowship [Gr. “koinonia” means participation, association, sharing] with […]

Oh what fun. Reality is such a fluid construct. I keep thinking not too much can change… maybe I am wrong. I do think about the movies a lot. What else is there to live for now? I can’t live in a serious world. I wish I had never gone outside. For me… the entire […]

The Middle Moments

​ I’m sitting on a park bench. It’s a crisp summer evening. Dewey and cool, but warm and clean. The birds are chirping their evening song. Incessantly sweet. The pavement, warmed by the sun at the hight of the days heat, is starting to cool. Everything is golden. The trees, full in their mid summer […]

Written for God

I sit on the sandy shore and silently cry out to the One Who made the waves and me, asking “Why did the bolted doors have to be opened and discordance welcomed in?” “Why when there was harmony and peace did the chaos and wounds have to begin?” “Why when there was gratefulness and reverence […]

On Tuesday when I hit 41 weeks pregnant I’m not going to lie I became pretty distressed. I was quickly envisioning my beautiful home birth getting away from me. I had already been doing silly old wives tales like eating pineapple, lots of sex, and some homeopathics. But I decided to go and get a […]

I was the person you came to when you needed something done. I was the person who you came to if someone was sick and needed a substitute teacher or a dish for the potluck. I was the person you came to because I never said “no”. There was an understanding around the office in […]
