  • God Gave Me The Light

    Contributed by K. Edward Skidmore on Apr 22, 2008

    GOD GAVE ME THE LIGHT I remember back when I graduated from college and was beginning to interview for ministry positions.

    Thomas Merton writing to Dorothy Day – “To some this quote will mean nothing, to others it describes an important stage in the journey ....

    GERANIUMS A man walked into a flower shop and asked for some potted red geraniums. "I’m sorry," said the clerk in flower shop, "we are completely sold out of all of our potted geraniums. But I’d be more than happy to give you a deal on something else. Could you use African violets more

  • The Truth Is That God, Who Needs Nothing, Wants ...

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 5, 2008

    The Truth is that God, who needs nothing, wants us. The Truth is that we–all of us–have discounted that divine presence and desire, perhaps thinking it’s too good to be true. And so, like Peter, the Rock, we turn to God when He invites us to act in goodness, truth and beauty. We listen to Him more

    On the coast of Scotland, at the top of a steep and dangerous cliff there stood a little company of rescuers planning how they might let someone down over the edge in order to search for the one who was lost and to take a rope to him.

  • Keep Looking Forward

    Contributed by Dave Kinney on Aug 24, 2008

    KEEP LOOKING FORWARD I was watching the Olympic rowing competition the other day and found it fascinating.
