November 2019 – Monthly Spirit

Change is hard, but it’s a fact of life. Change can be good; change can be bad. Usually it’s somewhere in between. We often grieve when things change. Sometimes we welcome change with joy. Fall is the perfect time of year to think about change. The world is changing around us, it happens every year,…

Take a Sabbath!   ‘The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath.’ Mark 2:27  Who doesn’t love to celebrate special days?  We love to celebrate birthdays, holidays, important occasions.  Those days are different than other days.  Take   birthdays for instance.  What would childhood be without balloons, candles and plenty of gifts to…

September 2019 – Monthly Spirit

Kids are back in school this month. Some are loving it. Some are      despising it. Most parents I know are rejoicing. As I think about being back in school, I’m reminded how hard it is sometimes to be a kid. They’ve got hours of homework and extra-curricular activities. Alarms go off early and even the…

Summer Reflection           Nothing excites me more than the thought of summer being around the corner!  It’s just been one of those long grey winters and wet springs and I can’t wait for a little warmth and hopefully some bright sunshine.  What I also love about summer is that our family schedule tends to ease…

May 2019 – Spirit of Hope

They say, “April showers bring May flowers.” And it’s true. Every year around these parts, the earth is reawakening with buds and flowers, and it wouldn’t be so if not for the rains of early spring. As we wrapped up our Lenten wilderness journey. And having just celebrated Easter, with Alleluias and flowers, I was…

April 2019 – Spirit of Hope

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Words that will be echoed in parishes around the world. A bold proclamation of what we as Christians believe to be true. Through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for our sins, thus purchasing for all who believe in him eternal life in Christ…

March 2019 – Spirit of Hope

We are embarking on another journey through Lent. It’s a period of 40 days (not including the Sundays) in between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. It’s reminiscent of the 40 years the Israelites wandered in the wilderness, the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness. In fact, Lent can be an opportunity to wander in…
