Living As If Friday Isn’t Available

Weird weeks can teach you a lesson. This week was weird. And I’ve learned something, too. I’ve been on Jury Duty. In Inglewood. Now, I haven’t had to go in yet (it is Thursday and I have one more shot at fulfilling my civic duty). So that’s the weird part. All week, I...

Conspire With Us

The calendar has given us some margin this year. At least so it seems. With Thanksgiving falling on the earliest day possible, we have the most days possible between the fluid date of Thanksgiving and the fixed date of Christmas. It kind of felt like a week of margin...

An Email of Encouragement

Not often enough, I get an email like the one found below. I just have to share the encouragement. We have met several times over the years, but I would forgive you if you didn’t put a face with this name. My wife and I live in Westchester and have come to PCC...

The Table

We will gather around a table this week. So much happened around a table in the Bible. Abraham met strangers. The Passover in Egypt. David almost lost his life. Jesus shared His last meal. The early church learned to be inclusive. And some day we will celebrate the...

Pray for Those who Serve Our Country

This weekend, the United States celebrates its annual observance of Veteran’s Day. It began in 1919, the first anniversary of the end of WWI. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938....

Light in the Darkness

If you missed it — it was an amazing night. It was THE happening place to be on Halloween, I must admit. The band was rocking it. The booths were staffed with the friendliest group of folks. And the hot dogs were grilled to perfection. The cotton candy went so well...

Preparing for the Aches of Life

Suffering hits us all. Now, it is true that the older you get the more often and more enduring it seems to be. The joints ache. The back gets stiff. The feet get sore. The energy is spent by noon. And that’s just the stuff on the outside. Internally, at some point we...

Ant Instructions

The ants on which our house was apparently built finally crossed the line. War broke out, and we’d had enough. Well, Christie had had enough, and I had the time to make the call to the exterminator. We had one of those when we lived in the desert, and the children...

My Plan vs His Plan

It was a routine Friday in the office. Busy. Fridays and spontaneity don’t mix. There’s too much work to do. I had a meeting early in the afternoon. I turned down a lunch meeting because… well, it is Friday. I moved that lunch request to 3 pm. The topic was to be...
