Sanctuary

Sanctuary. We hear this word in the news a lot lately. I find it interesting because I grew up in a church that talks a lot about Bible prophecies and last day events and the cleansing of the sanctuary has been listed as a doctrine.  Some people's theology is all about escaping this earth and proving …

The Dawn of Hope

The election was over when you discovered your candidate was dead. The guy who attracted birds and animals and people. The guy who could bring out the masses and feed them too. The guy who gave out free health care along with miracle cures. The guy who was a revolutionary and had a better way to …

Imagine There’s No Haters

Most controlling parents seem unaware of how much their expectations and punishments suck the life out of their children long after they leave home. I still occasionally feel guilty whenever I cut my hair, eat certain foods or befriend people I know my parents would disapprove of while I was growing up, but I don't …

Love is Resistance

Most of us who have studied narcissism and dealt with it in our families see lots of red flags in our new president's character. So how can we as citizens of God's kingdom make a difference? We might not approve of the choices of the president, but we don’t have to contribute to fear, we …

MLK Advice for the ACoN Soul

Being a white girl, living in a white neighborhood and not knowing any people of color, Martin Luther King Jr. was never mentioned in my childhood home. His birthday was never celebrated as a holiday until I was twenty, but I actually never learned anything about him until I was in college and we had …

Prayer for 2017

I'm starting this year worried Lord. Worried for the health and healing of some of my favorite people. Worried for the church I grew up in. Wondering if some leaders will ever do unto to others as they would like to be treated and treat women with equality. Worried about my country Where people actually …

You Won’t be Left Behind–Unless You Choose to Be

If I could go back in time, I’d go back forty years and give my thirteen year old self some advice: You won't be left behind--unless you want to be. It was popular to wear red, white and blue in 1976 because it was the bicentennial year and everyone was celebrating the fact that the United …

Things We Never Discussed on Easter

My family never celebrated Easter. Well we hid some candy-filled eggs a few times, but we never talked about the deep grief this planet suffered while Jesus slept in the tomb. We never discussed how Jesus humbly washed the feet of Judas as tenderly as he did Peter--or how both betrayed him and both could …

If You Give a Narc an Apology

If you give a Narc an apology, he'll want some groveling to go with it.  He’ll say you owe him and ask you to pick up the pieces for all the messes he’s made. When you refuse to pick up his messes, he will accuse you of things you've never done. You’ll try to set the record straight, …
