Faith Matters: In midst of darkness, God sends light

posted: 12/03/2016 1 a.m. Discuss

I've been doing a lot of decorating for Christmas this past week. I've got a white-and-gold color scheme going, with lots of glitter. For two days in a row, my face twinkled with gold glitter -- so much so that my 5-year-old granddaughter, Harper, called it to my attention. Harper loves glitter, and apparently, so do I. At the same time, I've been battling whatever allergy gunk is in the air, alternating between reaching for a Kleenex when I'm draining and reaching for the Afrin to decongest. My head is filled with an extra five pounds of excess fluid, and I'm not sleeping well. It's been an "Afrin and Glitter" sort of week.

Faith Matters: Stay awake to see changes in world, self

posted: 11/26/2016 1 a.m. Discuss

Before walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela -- an ancient pilgrimage route through northern Spain -- I had been told I would likely encounter many pilgrims from around the globe and I could expect to quickly form friendships, close bonds, with people I met along the way. That proved to be true. We pilgrims, walked together for miles on end, sharing personal stories, complaining about the pain of blistered feet and cracking toenails, wondering when we would finally arrive at a distant summit or simply walking together in silent awe of the beauty of God's creation. A kind of love flows naturally in such circumstances.
