A Relevant Prayer

It’s a relevant prayer for the present time, as leaders (lay and clergy) from our denomination gather this coming week to talk, pray and discern a way forward for the United Methodist church on the question of human sexuality.

Wildly Beautiful

As I was walking into the car repair shop I thought to myself:

I am barely holding it together.

Unwashed, with my hair thrown up in an oily, messy bun, I sported mismatched sporty shorts, an old t-shirt, and my trusty Birkenstocks. In short, I felt gross.

Building Your World

What if you imagined a world not how it is now, but how it could be?

A world where people based their life’s worth not on possessions, success, or wealth but instead on friend ships, community, and how they treat others?

Above the Clouds

Try to find a space inside your self where you can strip away all the distractions from your life: the worries about the future, the anxiety, depression, disappointment, and fear.

A God of Love

Creator God –

You have sculpted each of us in the image of love. You have given us the power to share your love, or to lock it away, hidden even from ourselves. Sometimes we forget that the choice is ours – to take love, to give love, to be love.

The Meditation Tree

o Im going to ask you to close your eyes right now and think of a place that gives you peace. This could be a tree or a nature scene. As you do, let a feeling of peace and calm come over you.
