  • How to Love Your Enemies?

    On Wednesday, April 18 th, 2012
    N ot all enemies carry arrows. All my life I had liked to think it was only David who had his enemies. Is it easier to say we don’t have any enemies — so we don’t have to figure out how to really love them? And how to forgive enemies from the heart? But who

    Turns out that all it takes to snap your back at the base is just a turning and a bending over to pick up a book. Turns out ‘safe’ isn’t a place you live at — but a Person you live in. Pleated there at the window, trying to straighten the back out again, trying

    On Wednesday, March 21 st, 2012
    It’s hard to know what that is — when it’s a spotlight that heats up a prophet’s fervor.   When ardency kindles with a microphone and holiness is this blazing performance for audience and applause.   But what is that, that zealous ember in the dark, when a woman wipes the drool from her father’s

  • What to Do When You feel like a Loser…

    On Wednesday, March 14 th, 2012
    It’s half way through Lent and forget that sign of of dust they brush on the center of your forehead. I’m bowed over the sink after a teenage daughter’s slammed out the backdoor.
