  • Stuck in the Middle

    Have you ever found yourself stuck in the middle or caught between two things?  We often find ourselves having left the familiar and not arriving in the new.  We’re in a milieu in the midst and it is quite uncomfortable. The Israelites who left the slavery of Egypt find themselves wandering in the wilderness.  The promise of the Promised Land ... Read More

  • Unwrapping…

    It is so much fun watching a child open presents on Christmas morning or for a birthday.  They know something special is inside.  Often they tear off the wrapping as quick as they can.  To see the joy on a face is absolutely priceless.

Our scripture passage this week from Mark invites us into two vital, life-giving directions.  Jesus ... Read More

  • Time…

    “For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven…” What time is it now?  Do I have time to do one more thing on my to-do list?  Is there an evening we can get together?  Time is finite but it sure seems to get away from us!  Our lives seem to become busier and our ...

  • Treasure…

    “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too.”  Luke 12: 34 What do we treasure?  How do we go about treasuring it?  If our treasure is what we spend most of our time, energy, effort, thoughts, words, resources, and space, then a treasure hunt into our lives might just surprise us.  Jesus invites us to look closely and ...
