Have a Good Day?

As we run about our busy schedule we casually greet people, “Hi”, “Good to see you”, “Have a good day” or some upbeat message to acknowledge them or brighten someone’s day. But as we all know, life is tough and the “good” is sometimes not that apparent. But it is important to remember this: Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day. But how do we find the good in each and every day when bad things do happen  – to good people – all the time? Our answer is lurking in what was common knowledge in Jesus’ time, namely that shepherds and their sheep knew each other well and were bonded closely.  And when the shepherd called, the sheep heard a familiar voice they knew they could trust so they didn’t hang back. That’s the key for us – the bond of trust that helps us hear God’s voice from the inside, no matter what is going on outside; the bond of trust that helps us hear all he is saying to us – words of comfort, congratulations or challenge. Developing that bond of trust tells us that it’s safe to believe and to act on what he tells us because experience has taught us that he loves us even more than we love ourselves. With that bond of trust we have the confidence and the energy to overcome our natural and legitimate fears of all sorts, and it gives us hope to take the risks we have to take to become our best selves. We feel loved knowing that God is reaching out... read more

The Message of Notre Dame

Millions of people sat glued to their televisions heartbroken watching Notre Dame cathedral aflame. As a symbol of Western civilization, the structure served as a reminder of man’s journey to his creator, through art, relics, religious services and the history of its mere survival of the structure through the centuries. Five days later over a billion dollars were pledged by donors from all over the world, all religions, all regions and all races to rebuild the Parisian icon to its former glory. There is always hope. What a fitting example of the message of this week’s spiritual celebrations of Passover and Easter. No matter how many years we may suffer in captivity, there is always hope for release. No matter how we may “die”, there is always hope of resurrection. There is always hope. The book of Ecclesiastes reminds us, “To every thing there is a season, a time to every purpose under heaven.” Just living day to day we witness these “seasons”… The Calm always follows the Storm. The Light always follows the Darkness. Spring always follows Winter. And Easer always follows Good Friday. There is always hope.  Let us take this message of hope and remember that it is not over yet. All is not in vain. God didn’t make us for pain and suffering, for sadness and dying, but for life – enjoying this life and the exciting, eternal life. So as we celebrate these religious holidays, let us bring hearts of hope as we pray verses of Psalm 118, a hymn of Thanksgiving: “…I was hard pressed and was falling, but the Lord helped me.... read more

Are You All In?

Do live your life with a question mark? Do you hedge your bets and hold back, keeping one eye on the nearest exit, and always making sure you have a way out? On one hand this makes a lot of sense covering all your bases, but on the other hand that is not what God asks of us. Remember when Jesus told us that, “Whoever would save his life will lose it. But whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” In this seemingly contradictory statement, God is letting us know that only our best efforts will do. Nothing less than investing everything we’ve got in building up God’s kingdom in us and around us. Living out of fear causing us to hold any part of ourselves back from our life’s work is a recipe for a lifetime failure, sadness, and isolation. Holding on too tightly to what we’ve already got is a sure formula for dying from the inside out. Jesus tells us we have an alternative – losing our lives in order to save them. This strange paradox is even at work in our daily lives. Remember at times when you have been so engrossed or intensely connected with someone you know and trust. You are all ears! As you talk to this person you listen intently as the rest of the world falls away. At this point we forget about ourselves, our image, how we look and what the rest of the day would look like. For a few moments we give our whole attention, we give away our whole self to the other.... read more
