Guided in Grace

No matter how clear or obvious our spiritual guidance, we sometimes miss its initial expression. We feel an impulse to call a friend, complete a task, or clarify an understanding, but then dismiss it. The impulse recurs and we think, “Oh, yeah. I gotta do that,” but still we procrastinate. Eventually, something happens that can’t be ignored: the friendship falters, the leaky pipe bursts, the small miscommunication snowballs into a family feud.

It's Up To Us

God's light, love, and comforting, healing presence are far more powerful than darkness, pain and loss. But it's up to those of us who know this to bring it into expression, especially in the aftermath of the Boston tragedy.

Who’s Your Daddy?

The Hebrew Bible is filled with accounts of Israelites being punished for worshipping false idols. God is repeatedly characterized as an abusive father punishing his kids for disobeying. It's apparently a very big issue. Indeed, "I am the Lord your God," and "Thou shall bring no other Gods before me," take the top two spots in the Ten Commandments.

Red Light. Green Light.

Ever feel restless, or grumpy, or anxious about a tough situation you're anticipating? It's a signal that you're not aligned with the greater self, the Christ of you, the divine within. It usually means we're trying to power through the day fueled by personal will and ego, rather than trusting Spirit to act through us, as us. So how do we reconnect with Source? How do we activate God's power and presence in all our affairs? What does reconnecting look and feel like?

Mindfulness:The Movie

Drivers often make stupid choices at the crazy "A"-shaped intersection in front of the church. I understand the mixing and narrowing of lanes where Crawford, Gross Point and Central converge is confusing. All the more reason the massive bright red SUV that cut me off to make a right turn from the left lane on a snow-slick roadway ought to have been more cautious. No time to honk. Thankfully, I braked hard enough, quickly enough, on pavement that was dry enough to avoid colliding.
