Tuesday Prayer

Spirit if God who hovered over the earth at the dawn of creation- Our environment is standing up to us. Python-like teeth of tornadoes are ripping into buildings. Waters keep rising as floods steal lands, massacre plant life, and leave our neighbors without homes. And yet, we keep living as if we make no impact.… Read More

Tuesday Prayer

Divine Dialogue Starter- For boundary training I would like to give thanks. Yes, it’s not easy to think of the do’s and the do nots of ministry. It’s not easy to continuously reevaluate ourselves, our power, and our place… But… It reminds me of my privilege which I must acknowledge. It reminds me of my… Read More

Holy One who abides in my words- In my awkwardness and lovely lack of self-esteem, I second-guess the words which exit my mouth.

Tuesday Prayer

Divine Winds of Peace- In this season of frigid gusts and sunless skies, our well-being is wafted away. We hold on to what we can for our own spiritual and emotional preservation. But some are barely surviving physically. From the lack of housing to the absence of heat and power, they wonder if survival is… Read More

Tuesday Prayer

God who abides with us on this side of the clouds… There’s nothing as ordinary as a gray Tuesday in January. But I will take the plain. I will take the bland. Too many days are filled with pain- News of hatred Speeches and videos and walls which divide us from one another Health declining… Read More
