Ashes Again

Reposted from RevGalBlogPals Friday Prayer: I saw the wildfires, Lord. The flames licking at houses, scorching trees. The stuff of homes and families and memories… GONE. I am undone. The raging power of the flames scared me, their passion was so all-consuming. but unlike…

Feed My Sheep: Restoring my Soul

This week I’m at Princeton Theological Seminary as an Engle Preaching Institute Fellow.  Part of my experience is sharing this learning experience with my Roundtable Group of other women clergy, aka the RevGals. Our group’s name expresses what we have come to understand is…

Friday Five: Push or Pull?

The traffic crawled for over a mile this afternoon and this was most of what I could see: It was the inspiration for this week’s Friday Five (which I’m hosting this week over at RevGals). Play along if you’d like! I am fortunate to…

Refugees and “compassion fatigue”

Because of the nature of my work (hospice chaplain) I must constantly wrestle with “compassion fatigue.” It is far too easy to be disengaged after a day of walking with those who are in an end-of-life scenario. I screw it up all the time……

FRIDAY FIVE: Blooming things

This week I’m hosting the Friday Five over at RevGalBlogPals. You’re invited to play along in the comments if you’d like. đŸ™‚ We often encourage each other to “bloom where you’re planted.” I like the symbolism, but realized that RevGals and Pals hail from…

FRIDAY FIVE: Whatcha Hauling?

This week, I’m hosting the Friday Five over at RevGals! Play along if you’d like! My coworker looked over with amusement at my purse. It was stuffed to the brim so that I had both hands free to carry a large vase of flowers….

A sermon on HOPE

HOPE: Seeing each other and our world as God sees us Romans 5:1-11 It’s so good to see everyone! It’s great to be out of the snowdrifts and black ice, isn’t it? This time last week our driveway was an icy luge in-the-making and we…

Friday Five: Whining in a Winter Wonderland

I’m hosting the RevGals Friday Five! Play along if you’d like! It’s official. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you are experiencing winter. SO… tell us: 1. Winter: What do you think about it in general? Do you love it? Hate it? Or say,…

Friday Five: O! Christmas Tree!

3dogmom over at RevGals writes: It’s been a week of wrangling with the Christmas tree at our house. Multiple strands of new lights were strung carefully on the tree for big impact, but here and there malfunctions and blackouts occurred. On the third day…

Friday Five: Festive Forgetfulness

This week I’m hosting the Friday Five over at RevGalBlogPals: The season of lists is upon us! At least, that’s the way I cope with the many events, worship services, visits and potlucks that squeeze in during this holiday season. So let’s talk about…

Friday Five: Applesauce!

It’s my week to host the RevGals’ Friday Five! Play along if you like in the comments, or leave a link to your blog!   This is the first of three batches of applesauce and applebutter created in my kitchen this month. And it’s…

Friday Five: Transitions – Accentuate the Positive

It’s my week to host the Friday Five. đŸ™‚ Many of us are nearing (or in) a time of transition. Either in between Calls, waiting for the next Call, moving to the Academy or another kind of work entirely. This time of transition can…
