ARCHIVE August, 2011

Stan’s Corner, Thursday, September 1

“The version of Christianity that formed me gave off conflicting signals.  On the one hand, it was very moralistic and burdensome; on the other, it was supposed to have forgiveness at its center.  The trouble was that when push came to shove, the former always won over the latter, I tried to lead a virtuous […]

Stan’s Corner, Wednesday, August 31

For all of August’s entries, please look under “Blogs.” Recently we went to an amateur art auction at Valley View Falls and were treated, at the end of it, by a solo of a song from the musical “South Pacific,” called “Cockeyed Optimist:” “When the skies are brighter

This is the fourth quote from Alan Jones’ book, Reimagining Christianity:* (Which is very thought provoking.) “Even as a young kid, God was to me an impenetrable mystery, yet I experienced this deep reality as personal.  God wasn’t a person, but God was personal.  By that I don’t mean private; I mean that the sense […]

From Alan Jones’ book:  Reimagining Christianity:* “My ‘belief’ began with an experience of being loved, and that experience was then tested in communion with others who were touched by the same images.  Those who taught me helped me question and refine my experience.  Above all, I was touched by the example of those who loved […]

Stan’s Corner, Sunday, August 28

We were without power for 32 hours without running water because we are on a well, and without television or the computer—it seemed like a week.  Anyway, I will put on a post for two missing days: From Alan Jones’ book:  Reimagining Christianity:* “I have retained an affection for the hearty evangelicalism of my youth […]

Stan’s Corner, Saturday, August 27

From Alan Jones’ book:  Reimagining Christianity:* #1  “When I was about eight I was admitted to the choir of the low-church parish (moderate evangelical) near my home, and this changed my life.  I had given my heart to Jesus in Sunday school and now I sang my heart out for Him in the choir.” p. […]

Here is the second half of Desiderata: Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.   Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield […]

Here is a famous piece of advice that I will continue on Friday’s blog. Meanwhile, here are two days in advance because we will be exploring the Hudson River Area for a couple of days. Desiderata by Max Ehrmann, 1927 copyright   Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may […]

Here is a nice paraphrase of the 23rd Psalm by Leslie Brandt: The Lord is my constant companion. There is no need that He cannot fulfill. Whether His course for me points to the mountaintops of glorious ecstasy or to the valleys of human suffering, He is by my side, He is ever present with […]

Several years ago I read a book by Kathleen Norris describing the plains of North Dakota in which she says “quietness is a spiritual exercise,” and includes this beautiful description:                         The so-called emptiness of the Plains is full of such miraculous ‘ little things.’  The way native grasses spring back from a drought, […]
