Psalm 150: The After Glow

 November 19, 2020

There is a moment after watching a wonderful fireworks display or hearing a magnificent symphony or concert, or seeing a phenomenal performance, that you just want to sit in the afterglow of the experience and bask in the memory. After the four great Alleluia psalms we just read, especially Psalms 147 and 148 that explode […]

Psalm 148: All Creation Praise the Lord!

 November 5, 2020

Psalm 148, the third of the alleluia psalms that end the psalter, is a simple song of praise to God found in creation, paralleling the creation story of Genesis. All creation is called upon to praise God, starting with the heavens, sun & moon, then moving to the earth, the animals, and finally humans. Psalm […]

Tunnel of Trees

 November 3, 2020

And now for something different. Amid all of the negative news, I thought it was time for something not related to the election or COVID – pictures from my trip to the Tunnel of Trees! I read about the tunnel of trees between Harbor Springs and Cross Village, Michigan, in an online Mlive article. I […]

Psalm 147: Twelve Reasons to Praise God

 October 29, 2020

Psalm 147 is the second of the Alleluia psalms that bring the book of the Psalms to a close. It enumerates many reasons to praise our God, any one of which is sufficient reason unto itself. Put together into one psalm, it resonates and resounds so that only the most closed of mind could refrain […]

There Is No Failing NaNoWriMo

 October 28, 2020

The most wonderful time of the year is near. No, not Christmas, but November–National Novel Writing Month. A time when writers throughout the world attempt to write 50,000 words. What’s even better, there is no failing NaNoWriMo. My Experience with NaNoWriMo I was first introduced to NaNoWriMo seven years ago. At the time I had […]

Are We in the Midst of a Communal Dark Night?

 October 27, 2020

No one would question that we are living in challenging times. There’s COVID19 on top of already existing problems: massive wildfires, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, racial unrest and the many conflicting reports from the media. Many feel depressed and lost as they wonder and worry. Who and what are we to believe? What will happen next? […]

Psalm 146: Praise the Lord who Lifts Up the Downtrodden!

 October 22, 2020

I’m looking for a few good women or men, people who are more concerned with helping others than promoting themselves. No sense in looking in congress for such persons. If they are there, they are pretty much invisible. These public servants are too busy trying to ensure they are re-elected, doing insider trading, and protecting […]

Our Inclusive God!

 October 21, 2020

In the beginning, God created humans in God’s image and likeness. But since then, we humans keep fashioning God after our own image and likeness, following after false gods rather than accepting an inclusive God. It’s understandable. We are limited beings with constraints on our ability to comprehend the unlimited. We use what we know […]

Five Hundred Year Rummage Sale!

 October 17, 2020

Who doesn’t love a bargain? I know I do. In my home state of Michigan, every year there is a 180 mile long garage sale along US 12, stretching from Detroit to New Buffalo. People along this route clean out their garages and attics for “hidden treasure” to sell. With shelter at home orders this year, many […]
