Talking vs Speaking Love

Remember- there is a difference between talking and sharing your experience, strength and hope.Of course we (Christians) are familiar with Jesus’s warnings about the use of our tongues and our idle words (words that are spoken to guilt, shame, humilate, boast, brag, incite fear or violence, encourage gluttony, pride and mindless consuming, nourish nonsense, offerContinue reading “Talking vs Speaking Love”

Mud

The question we must ask ourselves over and over is not what but who can give us eyes to see. We have gotten so used to looking but not really seeing truth. Doesn’t this seem ironic since looking seems to be the one thing we do all the time. Last week, I was told IContinue reading “Mud”

Costs of a growth economy

“Meanwhile, our attempt to maintain a “growth economy” in a measurably diminishing world is playing the devil with our traditional (and admirable) moral code, which our most prominent politicians now put to public use mainly to paint over our immoral behavior. We make war, we are told, for the love of peace. We subvert ourContinue reading “Costs of a growth economy”

Prayer for Healing

My prayer for 2022 is that this year will be the year of healing. I am not only praying for this, but I will be working towards this because I know that healing can only happen when we return to foundational truths and we practice these basic truths over and over in thought, word andContinue reading “Prayer for Healing”

Consuming to our doom

Yesterday, I listened to a pretty terrifying but informative podcast on Joe Rogan with Tristan Harris. https://open.spotify.com/episode/2LNwwgJqOMKHOqdvwmLxqd?si=CXSXco8CSvyRcHeERtyITA Say what you will about Joe Rogan, at least he has created the space for people to speak about issues who are not being given any airtime on mass media platforms. I don’t know if you remember butContinue reading “Consuming to our doom”

TheContinue reading “Clowns, Crowds-Facebook”

Only truth can set us free

Healing begins when, in the face of our own darkness, we recognize our helplessness and surrender our need for control… we face what is, and we ask for mercy. Henri Nouwen All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know. Ernest Hemingway If you do not tellContinue reading “Only truth can set us free”

Search for Truth

As we open our eyes to a new day, may we also create a space in ourselves, in our day and in our lives to receive Truth, to be Truth, to feel Truth, to know Truth, to practice Truth and to give Truth. But “What is Truth?” Isn’t this ultimately the question that we allContinue reading “Search for Truth”
