  • Cloud Angel

    “For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.” -Psalm 91:11-12 “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place […]

  • Draw the Circle Wide

    This is a picture of hands in a circle at one of our retreats several years ago.  We all have temporary tattoos of butterflies and hearts on our arms.  Though we all have different colors of skin, we are united in the transformative spirit of growth and support at this retreat. It reminds me of […]

  • At the Place where the Land Ends…

    He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)   I came upon this sundial while visiting St Michael’s Mount in the Cornwall region of the UK on a stellar day last September.  I […]

  • Marching On…

    This picture was taken at the March for Our Lives Rally in Richmond, Virginia on one of the first days of Spring last March. I remember feeling so empowered that beautiful morning marching alongside hundreds of passionate young people and realizing that my generation has the power to unite to change the world. The backdrop […]

  • Wilderness

    Frederick Buechner, A Room Called Remember: Uncollected Pieces.  “To be commanded to love God at all, let alone in the wilderness, is like being commanded to be well when we are sick, to sing for joy when we are dying of thirst, to run when our legs are broken. But this is the first and great […]

  • Reconnecting with my Faith

    It is so easy for me to become overwhelmed with the stuff of life – little things, little tasks, deadlines; I can sink into feeling completely inadequate to the task. This happens on a regular basis, but recently, it occurred to me to bring up Renee Fleming’s rendition of Bernstein’s “Simple Song”. The melody captures […]

  • Rejoice, while I’m Waiting

    Lamentations 3: 22- 25 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.  The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the […]

  • A May Morning over Everest

    Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. KJV As I relive those moments on a small plane between Nepal and Bhutan, a front row seat to God’s majesty, I think of my own journey. Where have I been led and opted to follow those instincts? Where have […]
