Psalm 127: Blessed in Sleep

 June 4, 2020

There was a time when a nap was a regular part of my day, back when my children were small. Then I seized every opportunity to nap, sneaking naps while they napped or when they were in school in preparation for evening meetings that were a regular part of parish ministry. Sleep, whether at night […]

Psalm 126: Through the Cross to Resurrection

 May 28, 2020

Have you ever awoken from a nightmare, relieved to know it had only been a dream? You may be disoriented for a while as you adjust to reality. Imagine Mary Magdalene on Easter morning, how confused she must have been when she first saw Jesus. Was this a dream? Or was this reality and the […]

“When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.” (Lemony Snickett) When trouble hits, head to the mountains!

Psalm 122: Going on a Pilgrimage

 April 30, 2020

Right now I would be glad to go on pilgrimage to anywhere far from the threat of COVID 19. That would be reason to rejoice like the writer of Psalm 122. “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (1) That isn’t possible as no place […]

Psalm 121: Where Do You Find Help?

 April 23, 2020

Remember those great cowboy movies of old?  Just when all hope was gone, the calvary would come riding over the hills, guns blazing. Nowadays, the calvary is more likely to take the shape of one man, coming in like Rambo with machine guns in each hand and rounds of bullets strapped across his chest. This […]

Psalm 119: The Psalm that Never Ends!

 April 9, 2020

My children introduced me to “The Song that Never Ends” when they were five and six. It was just a few lines that were repeated ad infinitum. It ranked right up there with “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” for its annoyance quotient. At least with “99 Bottles” one word changes each time and […]

Psalm 118: What is the Quality of Mercy?

 April 2, 2020

“The quality of mercy is not strained, it falleth like the gentle rain from heaven,” Shakespeare tells us in the Merchant of Venice. But what is the quality of mercy? Is it simply compassion shown to an offender or victim of misfortune as Webster tells us? Or is it something more as we see in […]
