The Divided Self

The Divided Self

Happy Pentecost, or should I say, the day after the Royal Wedding. Yesterday was the Royal Wedding, but you already knew that. Americans seem to have a particular kind of adoration for the Royal Family that honestly puzzles me a bit. And I don’t mean for that to sound judgmental, I was actually the one […]

God Goes Belonging

God Goes Belonging

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you. I personally can’t speak experientially about motherhood (I’m somewhat limited in that category), but watching Maddy take care of Auden, our baby boy, for the past five months has been eye-opening as to the job requirements and I think that it’s nothing short of a miracle that any […]

What to Wear at Easter

It Is Finished

It Is Finished

“When Jesus had received the wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” Jesus died. He took his last breath, and sighed, “it is finished”. If Easter is at the center of the Christian message, then Good Friday is its crucible. These last days of Jesus’ life, […]

Unplugged

Unplugged

How often do you think about your phone? What is the space of time between when a question is posed and you have to Google it. I decided to audit my phone habits when my granddaughter told me to look at her and not my phone. Simple will power is not working for me but […]
