Worth Revisiting:The Feeding of the 5000

Mt 14:13-21 After the death of John the Baptist, Jesus understandably seeks to get away to spend some much needed time in prayer.  With crowds constantly surrounding him, the time for renewal not to mention the time needed to grieve would prove formidable. His heart, however, moved by compassion on the people who were seeking… Continue reading Worth Revisiting:The Feeding of the 5000

Worth Revisiting: When the Spirit Speaks

Though now almost 2 years ago, this post still evokes such a vivid image of God's guiding hand when invited to lead us through all things big and small alike.  God, I have found, is never outdone in generosity.

Yet, at this very secular college, Philosophy of Religion had not been framed as articulate reasoning to believe.

Worth Revisting: Worn and Weathered

Physically and mentally exhausted, and having just navigated through a harried drive home I slumped through the door. Admittedly this extroverted people loving person was not in the mood to be in community for the rest of the evening. Yet, since being a wife and a mother total isolation is never a true viable option,… Continue reading Worth Revisting: Worn and Weathered
