The Meaning of Children

There is  a great series about parenting, faith and life going on here. Sadly I was too overwhelmed to officially attempt to join, but these are my thoughts. I have known and loved so many children already, and its been a blessing. I cannot remember a time without young children in my life. I am … Continue reading

Twas the Night before Christmas & Theater

So, I have 5 amazing children who are doing a performance of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Joy, Joy, Joy! This is where the spirit of the season is…let me tell you 1. The kids have come to practically every rehearsal (I tried to keep them reasonable). I am amazed at their commitment 2. The … Continue reading

Integrated Worship How to not only welcome but also integrate children in worship

Children! Yay!

It is a gift to love children. I know this, because as a child, I never wanted to forget what it was to have an adult who talked to you like real human being…there were these grown-ups who “got it” and I read books by authors who seemed to still get it. L. Frank Baum, … Continue reading

Nakedness

A synopsis of Sunday’s Sermon Naked Babies are beautiful–I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that naked babies are beautiful. Maybe this was why baptisms used to be done naked because (although a little dangerous) what is cuter than a naked baby? God made us, as all good mothers, God made space for us and then … Continue reading

A Parenting Parable: A Fig Tree

“Hurry UP!” Sometimes I can be a tad impatient with my children, especially my “almost” 5 year old. For example last Friday we were late to school because every single thing I asked him to do he said he would and then didn’t. Making me repeat myself over and over again. Last week I was … Continue reading

Sermons are Art

Sermons are art, sometimes they rock, and sometimes they don’t. Its less of a quotient of how many hours you put in, and tends to be where you are emotionally, are you feeling creative, is your imagination engaged, can you connect to your audience, is it relevant and yet provoking. I’ve always said, I wish … Continue reading
