Broken To Bless

I think it was Ruth Graham who wrote, “…there is a broken heart in every pew.” Many years down the road, with many a “breaking-experience” under my belt, I can say a healthy amen. We in The Church are “a building” built from broken things. I recall when I was the editor of my women’s…

Beloved Prodigal… (Part 1 ~ bat Shuvah)

  The road you’re on is not an easy one. (I should know.) I have been down your road. It is for that reason I wrote this book. I am hoping it will plant some seeds of trust in that heart of yours. The Jewish would call me “bat Shuvah”—she who has returned. I have returned. To my Abba-Father God. To…

Coram Deo

I had always felt it. This distance. All of my life—I felt out of sync with what was around me. Family. School. Church. God. Wherever I was, there was them, then there was me. Separate. I don’t know why. Perhaps it is hidden in early events I cannot now recall. Anyway, forget the why. That isn’t what I…

Denominational Squabbling Or What This Gospel Isn’t

Denominational Made-up-Minds. (Oh baby!) Of all the things in The Church, perhaps this is the thing that scares me the most. This blind prejudice to, “We have always done it this way.” or “That is what my daddy believed, what my mama believed, and by golly, it’s what I believe!” Well… okay then! Pardon my seeing this Glorious…

Bigger equals better—that’s the world’s mantra! But remember? The…

The Parable: A Calm Caterpillar

(DREAM-MAKER:) Soon. CATERPILLAR: Soon? What does that mean? Soon? When is, soon? I’ve been waiting a long time—I mean, I’ve been in here a long, long, long time.   (DREAM-MAKER:) Patience. CATERPILLAR: Okay… (sigh) I’ll calm down. I’ll be patient, but I’m just saying, it’s been a long time. In a very tight space. I…

The Parable: A Dark Constriction

  CATERPILLAR: All this way! All this effort! To end up here… in this miserable, dark place. (I don’t like this place…)   CATERPILLAR: Dream-Maker? Do You hear me? I hate this place! Oh-why-oh-why, did I ever pray those prayers! Dream-Maker how much longer? Haven’t I waited long enough? Dream-Maker? I did everything You told me to do—I…
