    CITY ON A HILL

  • Grace Notes

    Lately, I’ve reconnected with a young woman I met years ago.
    In the past month or so she has rediscovered God. She said that for many years she hadn’t believed, or maybe she believed but had put God in a back closet somewhere and shut the door.
    But recently, she opened the door to him and she contacted me to tell me about it. Ever since then she and I have been having conversations about faith and prayer and the love of God.

  • Powerful words, how will you use yours?

    I am often reminded by God to think before you speak. A great policy for anyone. We sometimes pretend that words don’t mean much, but they are incredibly powerful! In the Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel, God wanted to halt their building project.
    The book of Genesis tells us that they were building a tower so high that they began to be filled with pride. To stop the project, God took away their most important tool. Not the hammers or chisels, He took away their ability to communicate.

    When I was a kid, my grandmother on my father’s side owned a bakery.
    Whenever we’d visit her we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.
    Fun fact: My dad used to say that when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.
    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.

  • God has a perfect track record

    Life is full of changes. The seasons of the year give us an example of that. Winter gives way to spring which quickly changes to summer heat.  These are all routine changes that happen every year.  Still there remain other events that occur that place more stress upon us. 
    Some have just graduated and are anxious about their future. Others are moving to a new location and are facing the strain of a new life in a strange place.
    Still there are others who have recently married, undergone a divorce, lost a loved one or are enduring health problems.

    One of my favorite authors is Anne Lamott.
    I don’t agree with her politics or her theology, but she loves Jesus with a raw, earthy, profound and honest love.
    She’s a recovering alcoholic and is not shy about openly telling her story.
    In her book, “Traveling Mercies,” she writes about what she sarcastically calls her “beautiful moment of conversion.”
    It was during the week after her abortion when she stayed home, smoked dope and got drunk.

    A number of weeks ago, I injured my left knee.
    It had been months since I had gone to the Y to exercise and I had finally  decided it was time to go back.
    I bought new exercise clothes and talked to the wellness director for even  more motivation.
    I was psyched.
    On a Wednesday afternoon I got to the Y 45 minutes before the Strong by Zumba class started so I could walk on the treadmill first.

  • God created you to soar

    I stand amazed watching birds fly. Why do the buzzards lift their wings at about a 15-degree angle from their body as they soar, while a hawk keeps his wings flat, parallel with the surface of the ground?
    I notice the hummingbird flapping its wings faster than I can even keep clear while the great blue heron seems to lift and thrust her wings in slow motion.
