(Continued from previous post) My wife. The extra time I had this morning. I left for work early this morning and my recycling bin was knocked over spilling bottles, cardboard and old mail into the street. I had more than enough time to pick it up and re-stand my bin stress free. Coffee. Egg and bagel sandwiches. They’re delicious. Richard Rohr’s Homilies. Blinken and Cody.

On October 31st, 2017 I sat alone at the bar having a pint quietly ringing in the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by reading, The History of the Reformation in Scotland by John Knox. I purchased this book as a souvenir at his house in Edinburgh shortly after I left my last pastoral position. I was a part time associate pastor that mainly headed up the children’s ministry and occasionally taught on Sunday mornings for a semi-viable congregation in a... Read more

Always forward friends. Originally posted on blog-o-dave: I haven’t always been this way. There was a time in my life when I believed everything I was told.

A few years ago, I was disciplining under one of best men I’ve ever had the privileged of knowing, Don Schiewer. One of the practices he instilled in me was actually writing down things that I was blessing G-d for. Initially I had thought this was an absurd idea because I was young, arrogant, and had a health dose of anger. This had felt too superficial and I was looking for deep meaning with G-d. Like I said I was... Read more

Over the past few months I have been consolidating old notebooks with my sermon notes, and just thoughts I have written over these past few sabbath years and consolidating them into 5 hardcover moleskins. I still have a lot of work to condense them completely but I found something I wanted to share: Please hear O! YHWH, Abba, Father, Host of hosts. For as long as the day lasts and the night falls, I long to be your servant, your keeper... Read more

Alright before I start I just want to point something out. I searched three separate websites for stock photos where I just typed in the word, “hate” and a number of images came up. Some better than the one above. However, thanks to Free Digital Photos I downloaded this one for free. I want to point out a few things: The title of this is called, “Young Boy Yelling.” As what I can assume is a professional job, this kid was paid... Read more
