Stepping Stones

      Crossing a stone-studded stream stepping from stone to stone, each step has to  be carefully studied. Large stones are generally stable; flat stones are the best; rounded stones frequently tip over; moss-covered rocks and those wet with spray are slippery. 1.      Our daily spiritual progress is much like this stone-stepping.  We cross many […]

SAFETY

We all want to feel safe, wherever we are.   Human security measures, however much they are needed, can’t guarantee safety. In a very real sense, our safety has to do with where we dwell. This safe dwelling- place isn’t a particular location. It’s not a neighborhood, a country, a hideaway in the mountains, or a […]

Striving

Human life, with its flawed brilliance, relative morality, fluctuating affections, and its lack of absolutes, is an easy place to get lost. What prevents us from continuing to progress Is it complacency, apathy, an urge to accumulate worldly riches, family pleasures, a settling down into what we believe is comfortable matter? 1.                       Christ Jesus […]

LABELS

REMOVE THOSE FALSE LABELS In every phase of our lives, we’re surrounded by labels.  Many of us seem to be carrying around false labels that were placed on us in childhood by heredity, astrology or environment, and we consciously or unconsciously identify with them.

Not a Victim

Not a Victim

 You’re NOT a victim ! It’s surprising sometimes how tenaciously we hold on to our troubles. Some people suffer trial after trial, yet they never give out the sense of being victimized.  Others suffer one setback — or many – and they are victims for life. The injustice, the irrationality of evil, the emotional and […]

Living in the Now

LIVING IN THE NOW     Do you ever attempt to look to the future by trying to guess  what will happen, experiencing either anticipation or apprehension in the process?
