Equal in Christ

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Reading through Exodus 21, I come across laws about slaves—an illegal venture today. And, rightly so. I don’t think the Bible is outdated because I don’t believe the Bible is meant to be followed literally. Its historical content shows how […]

Zen Kitty and helping

posted by Cheryl Petersen

The bigness of God’s love and help can be found easier than we think. It’s natural for us to help each other. For example, I always leave a dead mouse for Cheryl. At least three times a week. But, during […]

Expanding on Peace

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Books with quick concordances in the back pages are convenient. The other evening, I wanted to look up a few verses in the Bible about the topic, Peace. Although not a complete concordance, I indeed captured a profound insight to […]

The Word of God Revisited

posted by Cheryl Petersen

“The Word of God.” I hear those words often when visiting churches. What does that mean? The Word of God? If God is Spirit—not a humanlike creature—than God has a spiritual language, not a human language. Surely, the spiritual language […]

The Best Easter Gift So Far

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Easter is an interesting time of the year. Of course, friends and neighbors have been involved in Lent for a few weeks now. I’ve covered a story on Ukrainian Egg decorating—a rather impressive and fancy process. My husband came home […]

Zen kitty showed me all-presence
I've blogged under the icon of Zen Kitty in the past. The cat was real and meant a great deal to me. The other day, to my horror, I found Zen Kitty dead, ran over by a vehicle. Mortified, I carried him back to the house to bury outside in the ...

Bee stings and manure fertilizer
Last spring, I planted a flowering plum tree out in the lawn and it’s been struggling all summer. Wanting to give it a little boost, I asked our neighbor, who has a gigantic pile of horse manure, if I could get some. “Sure, help ...

Rest rather than sleep
With all due respect for a good night’s sleep, I fail to see why sleep is automatically credited as the producer of rest. It's a bit misleading. Sleep is a state of unconsciousness or oblivion. Not exactly the best ingredients for rest. I'm ...

The qualifications for Communion
