The Life Within

Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.” – John 6:53 The child sexual abuse crisis in the Church had me feeling sad and angry and lonely. I felt sick inside. I… Read More ›

Jesus, Help Us See

Then he laid hands on his eyes a second time and he saw clearly; his sight was restored and he could see everything distinctly. – Mk 8:25 Sometimes we just don’t “see.” We don’t see Jesus’ presence in our lives. We don’t see how we affect others. We don’t see the blessings. We need to… Read More ›

I’m Back

I’m back. I have been away. Away from blogging, from writing, from my normal, everyday life. I was sick. Sicker than I have ever been. Hospitalized twice. Emergency surgery.

The Father Gives Us the Holy Spirit

“If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” – Luke 11:13 It happened three weeks after I had been baptized in the Holy Spirit while at a charismatic prayer group meeting….

March 7 – 11, 2016
