Be That Gift

This Christmas season brings many traditions.  One of our seasonal traditions is the giving of material gifts, representing the gift of love that we are all called to partake of. Yes, believe it or not we are all gifts to one another. This advent, this time of refocus let’s rededicate ourselves to giving the gift that we were meant to share. The Lord is dwelling here in our midst, where he has always been showing himself to each of us in diverse and subtle ways every day. Some of us will recognize his face sharing his love and goodness with others.  Some of us, on the other hand, will see little if anything of his face, sharing hollow sadness and disappointment. Casting aside our blindness to God’s Ever-Presence let’s make a particular effort to open our eyes and hearts to all. Every person comes into your life for a reason. It’s an invitation from God to respond. How will you RSVP? Christmas Gift Prayer In this Advent season, may we give: – to our enemy, forgiveness, – to an opponent, tolerance, – to a friend, our heart, – to a customer, service, – to all, charity, – to every child, a good example, – to ourself, respect. Amen (Terry Hershey) “Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.” (Leo... read more

Let the Season Begin

We are now officially in the “Christmas Season” bringing with it the joys, stresses, anxieties, anticipations and disappointments that can come with any overinflated, long awaited “buildup”. Commercially, we only have a few short weeks to prepare for this upcoming holiday.  Our Christmas “to do” list includes cookies to be baked, gifts to be purchased, trees to be decorated and parties planned. Religiously the world is also in “ready mode”. Jewish people are prepping for Hanukkah with the treasured traditions of the lighting of the Menorah candles. Christian churches singing “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel“ celebrate this preparation time as “Advent”, commemorating the 4 weeks representing the 4,000 years longing for the birth of Jesus. Spiritual leaders everywhere attempt to refocus the attention of the faithful to what “Really Matters” in this life, kind of like a wakeup call. Especially during these busy days we need to remember the admonition that life is not about the destination, but “The Journey”. With so many family, cultural and religious traditions, it’s easy to overlook the “Reason for the Season”. We all get in our little ruts and maintain the habits that numb our thinking and feelings and propel us through this life just going through the motions, failing to notice the important things that we have been missing. Like the rude guest at a cocktail party, who talks with us while all the time being distracted while watching for someone more interesting to move on to meet, we often look right over the present moment right in front of us! We squander our attention on trivia losing out on the special people and unique opportunities right... read more

Prayers for Thanksgiving Day

The coming weeks are filled with traditions that bind us together as a family, friends, neighborhood and/ or people “walking each other home”. Many of these traditions, are created around the dinner table sharing memories, laughs and love while enjoying the fruits of many working hands. When we sit down at these special meals it’s important to bow our heads with grateful hearts. But when it comes to prayer sometimes words escape us. Here are a few choices you can choose from to use for your Thanksgiving Celebration. THANKSGIVING BLESSING: O Heavenly Father: We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for friends and remember the friendless. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service. That Thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.- “Dear Abby” A PRAYER FOR THANKS AND BLESSINGS PAST AND PRESENT:  Lord God, we gather around this table to humbly thank You for all that You have given us this past year – not just what is on this table, but who is sitting around this table. Thank you for life and laughter, for health and happiness, for relationships and memories. Thank you too, for the lessons learned and the tears we’ve cried because of Your ability to grow us through them. Thank You for Your comfort and Your presence, in light of good days and bad. Thank You for what we have now, for what we had yesterday, and for what You will continue to give tomorrow. Let us never take... read more
