Follow Me!

Following can be a good thing. Leading can be even better! It all depends on what you are doing and whether you are going somewhere important. 

We hear a lot about Christians these days not living up to their faith. It seems that the worst of us are defining the rest of us. 

But it was really pretty simple in the beginning. He said, “Follow me.” 

The question is, do we do that? How can we lead  if we have not learned to follow? 

We still have something important to do. Maybe we start with actually following….

“You’re too Sensitive?”

Do you enjoy a sunset over the water?
How does it make you feel?  Is it OK to be in touch with your feelings?

… timely exposure, in moderation, to all that is good, beautiful and true only makes for healthy sensitivity and appreciation and respect. It is one of the characteristics of true maturity in men as well as in women.
 
Baars, Conrad W.. Feeling and Healing Your Emotions 

See With New Eyes

My perspective matters to me. Your perspective is what’s important to you. 

And, try as we might, we each really do see things through our own lenses.

Sometimes we canot agree because we  really are just seeing different things. 

Here are my glasses. Can you give me yours?

Maybe we can see with new eyes!

I Have a Dream

I have a dream …….

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia sons of former slaves and the  sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”
A short excerpt from the Speech by the Rev. Martin Luther King at the “March on Washington.” – 1963 (now 55 years ago)

There will be much written and said today about peace, ending racism, inequality in the workplace,  and minority civil rights.

We just want to ask one question:

“Are we able to sit together at the same table of brotherhood yet?”

How we answer that question tells us where we are in accomplishing the dream of Martin Luther King and all people who yearn for the continuing pursuit of being human with one another

Who will you invite to the table?

 

How Committed Are We to What We Believe?

Do we ever question what we REALLY believe? 

Obviously there was no REAL drummer boy in the sense that he was a factual person. He is an imaginary character in a Czech carol of unidentified origin.

BUT is this drummer boy still not somehow REAL, a real part of each of us that share the enthusiasm and exuberance of his message?

How committed are we to our message and to our hope in things not only greater but also beyond ourselves?

Infused with what we truly believe, with power and energy and limitless enthusiasm! 

Take this newer rendition in and and just maybe we can find time to think about these things during our Holiday break.
