The Dance of the Empty Chairs

The Dance of the Empty Chairs

Sabbath Offerings ~ Thanksgiving and a Surprise

Sabbath Offerings ~ Thanksgiving and a Surprise

Each weekend we gather together in this space to spend time with each other and God. You come with coffee or tea in hand and touch me with your presence and sweet words of encouragement. I look forward to our time together and love starting my day knowing you will...
Prepare Ye the Way

Prepare Ye the Way

Fall is becoming a distant memory. The chill in the air reminds me to search for my gloves, scarf, and earmuffs. The leaves hang on in places, but barrenness stretches across the landscape. A silent chant begins to crescendo each morning as I reluctantly crawl out of...
