Remember where you are going

Date: 02/07/2013

Each of us has been given a plan for our lives.  For most, that blueprint remains a mystery and a puzzle.  We wander back and forth unsure of our footing or grasp.  Much like a mountain climber who has no safety rope or pick, we inch our way through life fearing each move.  There is challenge and fear because we know that one wrong move will plunge us to a certain death. Yet, there is little ...

Remember--a Christian discipline

Date: 02/06/2013

Remembering is a vital Christian discipline that is either ignored or taught in an off-handed, casual manner.  Most of us know that  routine thinking  is defined by psychologists as remembering what happened in the past and rehearsing how we would change it if we could relive the event.  Perhaps that is the reason why Christians disregard the command of Jesus to “do this to remember me.” Why ...

Remember where we came from

Date: 02/05/2013

She is never early.  Always late.  He cannot speak without using offensive or vulgar expressions.  ”I’M marching to a different drummer” is her excuse for breaking all the rules and acting selfishly.  He only seems interested in hurting others, if he doesn’t get his way. I’ve deliberately left out names.  Because we all can fit into any of those statements but for the mercy and work of God in ...

Remember

Date: 02/04/2013

Perhaps one of the greatest virtues and joys of a Christian is remembering.  We often overlook the command that Jesus gave to us during the Lord’s Supper.  He said, “Do this so you will remember me.” Time and time again in the Old and New Testaments we are instructed to remember.  Many of the emotional and mental hardships we experience in our daily spiritual walk stem from neglecting this ...

Meeting a friend

Date: 01/31/2013

Tonight I had a pleasant surprise when I met a friend who is also a member of Special Gathering during my late afternoon walk.  My friend, M.J. was meeting with her reading tutor in the park. Her tutor explained that they often take a walk in the park to help  M.J. loosen up and prepare her for her next reading assignment. At the time I saw them, they weren’t walking but M.J. was reading out ...

Writers write

Date: 01/30/2013

Each day begins with prayer and either household errands or blogging.  As much as I enjoy writing, the daily household demands of living often interfere with what I feel God has called me to do.  The author of thousands of magazine articles and more than 40 books, Jamie Buckingham often said,  ”Writers write.  That’s why they are writers.  Publishing may or may not happen.” Shelly is a writer ...

Saying what you mean

Date: 01/29/2013

During the morning, I performed some mindless cleaning and straightening of a supply closet.  Also, I listened to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she testified before the Senate.  Later, in the afternoon, I met in a strategy meeting with a co-worker and friend regarding changes that need to take place in our ministry. In both incidences, I came away fascinated with the levels of communi ...
