March 21 – The Power of One

March 21 – The Power of One

#79of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is on the power of one. That one person can really make a difference. Yesterday was the primary election in Illinois. For the first time in McLean County, the Libertarian Party had ballot access and a primary contest. I ran for precinct committeeman to help the party out. I went to my polling place with my daughter first thing in the morning, pulled a Libertarian Party ballot, and voted. One of the people I voted…

March 14 – Transformation from Sol to Paul

March 14 – Transformation from Sol to Paul

Today’s lesson is about transformation or from Sol to Paul. (And no, Sol is spelled correctly). This evening I was honored to play the Apostle Paul in our Lenten services. It was a three page, close to 10-minute monologue on how Paul was so blinded by the light and thought his righteous anger was just and how he was chosen to bring the light and judgment to those who blasphemed in Galilee. His ‘silly, self-righteous, educated, ineffectual’ self, was nothing more than irritation…

February 25 – American Christianity or Carry Your Cross

February 25 – American Christianity or Carry Your Cross

Today’s lesson is about the views of American Christianity or in other words what it means to carry your cross. I want to share an image that a friend shared on social media. Then the discussion led to American Christianity and the “evils” that can be there. I do have to say it was one of the most respectful, caring conversations between people I have had. I truly love and respect my friends especially through a difficult conversation. When I…

February 20 – I Appreciate You

February 20 – I Appreciate You

Today’s lesson is about appreciation and those little acts that make it all worth it. Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t always have the right words, but I  try to have the right intent. This weekend was no exception. I was talking to an African-American man on Saturday about the Black Panther movie. How I enjoyed it and how then I said forgive me if I use the wrong words, the directors made a good superhero movie that happened…

February 13 – Witness Part 2

February 13 – Witness Part 2

Today we continue the discussion on being a witness. Talking about my faith is near and dear to my heart. There are so many things I don’t know. I can’t quote scripture off the top of my head. I don’t know the who, what, where, when of all the books of the bible. Sometimes I think Matthew, Mark, Luke and John ad related to John, Paul, George, and Ringo. (Ok, I’m teasing on that one). There is so much I…

February 9 – Being a Wit

February 9 – Being a Wit

Today’s lesson is about witnessing the Lord. Our Pastor’s have talked about this in depth. I have never thought of myself as a witness. I thought you had to be a pastor, priest, or preacher. I thought that you had to be fluent in scripture, being able to rattle off a lesson or specific verse at a moments notice. I thought there was no way, I could ever help someone find Jesus. How could I help someone find Jesus if I was…
