Psalm 31 – Those Who See Me, Flee from Me

 July 17, 2018

Who are the pariahs of our times? Who do we run from? Perhaps victims of AIDS who are considered unclean? Perhaps those disfigured by war that we don’t want to look at because it upsets us? Or stroke survivors who struggle to create a new normal after the debilitating effects of this attack on their […]

Psalm 30: Joy Comes with the Morning

 July 10, 2018

Joy comes with the morning. This passage gave me comfort years ago when my position as chaplain was abruptly eliminated. One minute I was planning out the next month’s sermons, an hour later I was sitting in my car with twelve years of my life packed into the trunk and back seat. I had started […]

Psalm 28:  Clinging to the Rock, our Savior

 June 26, 2018

Liar, liar, pants on fire – appropriate phrase as we listen to the political rhetoric around us. Satan is the prince of lies, a master of deception, and if so, his presence is apparent throughout our society. Lies are everywhere. They are destructive, none more so than the lies we tell ourselves. Amidst all of […]

Psalm 27: God Lights our Days and Nights

 June 19, 2018

I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining. I believe in love, even when I don’t feel it. I believe in God, even when he is silent. Some claim this is an Irish saying, others that it had been written on a wall by a Holocaust victim. Whatever you believe, this is a […]

Psalm 26 – Help when Falsely Accused

 June 12, 2018

Have you ever been falsely accused? Have you ever been a victim of a mistaken identity or a stolen identity? Or charged the wrong amount of money, or charged for something you never ordered, or overcharged because of human error or computer error? The writer of Psalm 26 would be able to relate to your […]

Psalm 25 – God, our Teacher

 June 5, 2018

As you sow, so shall you reap. Beware the yeast of the Pharisees. Consider the lilies. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Every valley shall be exalted and every hill laid low. Fear not. Give and gifts will be given to you, good measure, packed together, shaken down and overflowing. […]

Psalm 24: The Earth is the Lord’s!

 May 29, 2018

Recently science has begun to explore the spiritual realm, trying to put “God” under the microscope. Scientists try to study religious phenomena using scientific methods. However, no scientist, not even Einstein or Stephen Hawking, can adequately explain creation and the Creator. Psalm 24 reminds us of this. The Earth is the Lord’s, the psalm begins. […]

Psalm 23:  A Prescription for Health

 May 22, 2018

Psalm 23, a prescription for health? How can that be? I don’t know about you, but personally, I’m not the best patient. I have problems following orders. I second guess and question and pretty much do what I want to do and find ways to justify this. Somehow, I get by. It must be frustrating […]

Psalm 22:  Moving From Despair to Hope!

 May 15, 2018

“My God, My God, why have you abandoned me?” – Jesus cries from the cross, his lowest point, also his highest. This was what he had come here to do, to die so that we might live. In that moment he fulfilled all the Father had commanded. Jesus last words in Mark’s gospel make up […]
