BE YOU

I’ve had this Matt Groening cartoon up near my desk for years: It’s such a great encouragement.  Don’t let others get you down.  Even if people try to stop you.  Even if they don't get you when you share your…

PERFECT FIT

On Sunday morning, we chanted the chorus of Peaches & Herb’s 1978 hit, “Reunited and It Feels So Good.” It was sexy and soulful. And it felt totally on the nose to celebrate reunion after so long apart. I kept…

THRU THICK & THIN

Getting ready for our return to in-person Sunday service this week feels something like being spun around for a game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. The whole year has been dizzying, so you’d think we’d be getting more…

I have been dedicated to studying Spanish this year.  I still freeze in any conversation that comes close to normal speed, but I’m getting pretty good at reading comprehension, and my vocabulary has expanded tremendously.  It’s been one of my…

SLOW JAMZ

Last week, hundreds of galleries and museums around the world participated in “Slow Art Day 2021.” This is an annual thing that has been going on for ten or twelve years. I’d never heard about it before. And I missed…
