February 23 – (Dis) Abilities

Today’s lesson is about appreciating those with disabilities or other abilities. I admit when I’m driving behind someone going slow I get mad sometimes. When I’m in line at the checkout and someone is going slow, I get impatient. When someone is walking so in front of me, I get impatient and frustrated. (It’s not like the extra 60 seconds […]

February 15 – The Lost Ones

Today’s lesson is on the “Lost Ones”. Yesterday, like many of you, I was horrified to learn of yet another mass school shooting in the United States. 17 dead. 12 injured. Countless lives impacted. I have been praying for those lives lost and impacted. During our Ash Wednesday Service, we prayed for them. I knew today I wanted to write […]

February 14 – Gratitude

Today’s lesson is on Gratitude. I try to be a grateful person. I don’t always succeed. Today I started a six-week lunchtime class from our Wellness Center on Gratitude. The first lesson was to try not focus on negative thoughts and activities but on the positive. Too often we focus on the ills of the world, of our families, of […]

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 […]

February 10 – Is Jesus Real?

Today’s lesson: Is Jesus Real? I know this is a provocative question. Some say “Yes”, without a second thought. Others say “no”, without a second thought. Still, others are confused. Even some say, “I just don’t know”. During the Super Bowl, I had a conversation about faith and Jesus. The person I was talking to sounded like they wanted to […]

February 8 – The Others Part 2

Today’s lesson continues on the theme of the Others from yesterday. I have been thinking more and more about “the Others” and how we treat them. I do not agree with anyone on everything. Even in faith, religion, and God, we have different interpretations of the Holy Word and have unique relationships with God. As I often do, I wanted […]

February 7 – The Others

Today’s lesson is about how we treat others. Many of you know I love science fiction. I was watching a Phillip K Dick’s Electric Dreams episode entitled (K.A.O) or Kill All Others. It was set in the future where there is only one candidate for public office and the candidate started to say Kill All Others. The question of who […]
