  • * Susan Hartley Swett (1843-1907) -- “When the scarlet cardinal tells her dream to the dragonfly, and the lazy breeze makes a nest in the trees, and murmurs a lullaby, it is July. When the tangled cobweb pulls the cornflowers cap awry, and the lilies tall lean over the wall to bow to the butterfly, it is July.”

  • In today’s world, there is a deceptive philosophy that says that no one can be trusted. This philosophy forces humanity to be skeptical of business owners, politicians, neighbors, family members, spouses, the medical field, etc.  This list could go on and on so that before it’s all said and done, we are made to believe that the whole world is out to get us, that no one is honest, and that survival depends solely upon our own instincts.  

  • The news was horrific and sordid: Church staff member arrested for a sexually salacious crime.
    Sadly commonplace, it happens all over the U.S. -- you just never expect it to happen to your church.
    But last week, it happened to mine when our former worship director was arrested and charged with multiple sex-related crimes against minors.
    A local sheriff’s detective called him a “textbook predator.”
    We as a church loved him -- still love him. And we as a church abhor what he has done.
