A Prayer

Infinite and Holy One---- When we close our eyes, bow our heads, and surrender to the moment. We come to you from the seat of our souls---- That place of our greatest vulnerability, divine potential, and hope. The Odyssey humbles. First, we ask pardon for the places in our lives where we have missed the...

Just Believe

Does your Heart have an imagination? The ancient miracle play is about to commence. Take your place. You have been cast to play: Your one true self. The soul always gets the lead.

The Truth

Disappointment is inevitable, unavoidable, and the price of being human. It shakes the very grounding of our being.

The path of wisdom invites us to walk...

Easter Prayer

Hallowed One, We stand in awe and wonder at your daring plan of Love. Just when we begin to despair, the Light rises up and defeats the Darkness. Heaven breaks through.

Meditation on Ash Wednesday

From dust we came and to dust we shall return. I know this truth all too well as a minister praying over the burial urn containing all that once was precious life. The day will come when we too will fold back into the embrace of Mother Nature. But that is...

Merry Christmas

The Angel Gabriel has spoken. The Mother of God has sung her Magnificat in reply. The Star of Hope is stitched upon the dark canvas, a luminous protagonist in the duel with the Night. The host of the heavenly wait for their cue, Alleluias whet upon their gilt tongues. The shepherds star-gaze, honored to...

A Prayer on Thanksgiving

Holy One,  How do we begin to say thank you? How do we stand before you in our humble garb of flesh and bone and thank you for all that we are— Divinely-made, tenderly loved, and eternally-bound. How do we say thank you for all that we have— For that first holy breath and every...
