Thanks for stopping in. Pour yourself a cup o' jo, take a load off your feet, and check out what's here. You are looking at my ramblings about issues of faith, life and culture—they are my own and are not necessarily shared by those with whom I work, live or otherwise engage.

My journey has led my family and me across the country where I have been introduced to a lot of people and a lot of different ways of doing things. One passion, though, runs through all these experiences: building beloved and sustainable community. "Sustainable" community is kind of a strange notion, as communities (people) change constantly, and things are always in motion. So, the latest chapter of my life has led me to the notion of "impermanence"—not an idea that comes naturally in a culture that likes to build monuments to our greatness for future generations to view and admire. But, I'm trying to practice my awareness of impermanence—the idea that nothing is permanent, nothing is forever, and things are always in flux.

Feel free to share your comments and engage in any conversation that may be happening here, but just know that I do reserve the right to delete any spam or anything I deem inappropriate or offensive. I look forward to dialoguing with anyone who cares to dialogue!

Peace and blessings,

New Year, New Potential

It is a new year with new possibilities brimming from untapped potential. It remains to be seen what the new year will bring, but here is what I hope.

  • I hope that I may grow ever more aware of God’s presence in my life and in the lives of others (the latter being the more difficult for me sometimes) in both difficult and joy-filled times.
  • I hope that I might branch out and try new things, paying attention to my fears but not letting them control my decisions.
  • I hope that I may pay more attention to potential and possibility, and not get bogged down in the “but, what if” syndrome (“but what if” it doesn’t work?; “but what if” this that or the other thing). The truth is, we won’t know until we try!
  • I hope that I may be more intentional about connecting with the people I love and cherish in my life.
  • I hope that your year is fulfilling and complete: I hope you find things to celebrate; that you may shed a tear in sadness, but recognize how God is still present to you and those who suffer; that you may sense the friendship of God’s Holy Spirit in the hum drum of every day life; that you may experience at least a glimpse of the miracle and glory that is you!

And may we be blessed in this new year!
