In the midst of difficulty, we often forget how very strong we really are. Before this pandemic started, some of you were coaching your child’s Little League team. Others were giving piano or sewing lessons in your home. Mind you, these were done out of your passion and dedication, in addition to caring for your…

Out of Many One

E Pluribus Unum.  Out of Many One. These are the words written on the Seal of the United States of America.  This is our traditional motto.  What this says to me is that, in unity, many pieces must come together.  One person or thing standing alone is not unity—it is one person standing alone!  The…

Growing Your “Ask” Muscle

Do you remember the wonder and excitement you felt as a child at Christmas? The feeling that anything was possible and magic existed all around you? The feeling that simply asking for your Christmas wish made miracles possible? If you didn’t celebrate Christmas, then the same feeling may have been brought about by making a…

Built on Rhythm

The world is built on rhythm.  Day turns into night and then night turns into day.  We have always been able to depend on that.  Whatever the day has brought, we can begin again the next morning.  Alcoholics Anonymous goes by the motto of “One day at a time.”  Following a rhythm brings new life….

‘Stay safe’ no more

I do not want to “stay safe,” friends. Of all the things I am most tired of, it is hearing those two little words and trying to pretend that I could actually – ever – do that: “Stay safe.” Truthfully I simply do not know how to “stay safe.” I have walked The Razor’s Edge…

In Search of Peace

Over the years, I dare to say that most of us took part in endless holiday plays at school or maybe at a church, regardless of where – there was always a common thread of seven little words spoken, “Peace on Earth. Good Will to Men.” Perhaps, it would be a banner with gold lettering…
