  • Still teaching...and learning...after all these years

    The first daffodil in my yard bloomed Feb. 25. What I wonder about this early visit, is it a promise of an early spring or just a confused bulb? I don’t really know why, there have been worse winters, but this one has managed to sink into my bones and dull my senses.

    There are parallels between Jedi warriors and Christians.

  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago a woman called me at work, wanting to tell me her story.
    She wanted to tell someone who would believe her and not laugh, someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful, impossibly improbable things.
    She had heard that I believe that God makes pigs fly.
    That I do, although I haven’t seen any in a very long time, but I’m praying that I will.
