Once again, I would like to share the delicate writing style of Howard Thurman: “We are mindful of needs beyond our little world and its demands.  Some needs close at hand have not been able to get beyond the outer gate of our vital concern–we have dealt with them casually out of the richness of […]

I first heard the name of Howard Thurman in 1959 when I entered seminary at the Boston University School of Theology, where he had been Dean of the Chapel.  He was noted for having started “The Church For the Fellowship of All Peoples” in San Francisco—an interfaith, interracial, intercultural church.  I have recently been reading […]

When I was in high school, we studied Shakespeare’s play Macbeth and had to memorize these lines.  Sometimes when I have had an especially good night’s sleep, I think of the first line….which is a kind of healing. “Sleep that knits up the ravel’d sleave of care, The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s […]

In last week’s sermon, Pastor Ricki gave this interesting illustration which moved me very much: “Dr. Paul Tournier, a famous Swiss physician and a dedicated Christian author of many insightful books took his first book to his medical school to visit a favorite old professor. Granted an afternoon of the venerable man’s time, Tournier read […]

Here is another quote from  Courage to Change: “Today, I seek to become a little more accepting of myself, a little more comfortable in my own skin….Condemning my imperfections has never enhanced my appreciation of life or helped me to love myself more.  Perhaps I can let go of all condemnation for this one day.  […]

Here are some of the closing words of Martin Luther King’s famous speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., in 1963. “I have a dream that one day, every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be […]

Here is an excerpt from the beginning of Martin Luther King’s famous speech at the Lincoln Memorial, August 28, 1963 before 200,000 people. “Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.  It […]

Here is another interesting quote that Catherine Neptin-Rieder found and put on facebook: ‎”What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly.”  Take a minute to think about this because there are many times when we are discouraged by what is happening, when in actuality, it could be the beginning […]

Here is another great poem I have had for a long time.  It is called “Bless this Mess” by Jo Carr and Imogene Sorley: Lord,  bless this mess. Bless this Monday house— breakfast dishes in the sink, beds still unmade, clutter of sandwich makings on the cabinet, living room awry. Bless this mess, and me, […]

When I was in high school in Oregon, I heard this spoken on a record by T. Texas Tyler.  He is explaining to his military officer why he is playing with a deck of cards: “You see, sir, when I look at the Ace, it reminds me that there is but one God. And the […]
