Development #11

Each of us is on a path of discovery, and no matter where you are on the path, you are bound to find a fellow traveller if you just look up from your own two feet... While waiting for construction permits has slowed progress on the construction site, there is still much going on with the congregation! And it is so... Read More  

Roots

Development #10

Our roots are showing!   For some time, a poem has been rattling in my brain. Rarely do these things stick with me unless there is some sort of transformational work underway- like when you feel an emotional pinch at a seemingly harmless comment and stop to look at it with some curiosity later: " I wonder why...

Development #9

I rarely quote scripture as a matter of conversation, but today I can't stop thinking about Isaiah 40: 4, which is the setting for the prophecy introduction in "Every Valley"- the second number in Handel's "Messiah."

I considered the word "power" as the little box settled in place- the winch holding up the tiny shell of a building, barely straining as it lifted,... Read More

Change ...

Yesterday, as I watched the start of the demolition of the church, a mom said her little boy "...you'll never see anything like this again in your life!"  This casual exchange has stuck with me. Possibly because I really hope I never see anything like this again. Watching the building come down is a flood of... Read More

Demolition Day!

I saw the gate open at the church today, so I went over to ask if the crew had any idea when demolition would begin... " oh, in about 15 minutes" says the gent, so seriously, I thought he was joking. But no joke.  I run to grab my camera and start recording (after calling and texting a few folk). Here's how I... Read More

Day Four

The story we create... Someone once said that seeing is believing... and I know that what I think I see (and /or know) is not always what "is." People are amazing puzzle- solvers -the ability to see more than what is there is what has given us innovations galore: telecommunications, medical breakthroughs, space... Read More
