True Nature

Every morning I sit in my back yard and look out on acres of green space. It’s a clear view across my neighbor’s yard to a large pond where there are birds, geese, rabbits, bullfrogs, and the occasional fox. When I watch them, each seems…

Making transitions.

“I’m not afraid of death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”—Woody Allen I rarely turn to Woody Allen for spiritual direction. Although, I’ve always been convinced that Jesus, a Jew, probably looked more like Woody Allen than the light-haired, blue-eyed Jesus…
