When I Pray

When you pray, go to your room and close the door. Pray privately to your Father who is with you. Your Father sees what you do in private. He will reward you. (Matthew 6:6) I most often pray in private these days. I used to pray out loud for my group in Bible Study. I […]

Where is My Church?

My church is in the sky, Where the shapes of the clouds Remind me of the things of the earth.   My church is on the ground, Where fruits and vegetables grow, And blossoms flourish in colorful array.   My church is in my car, Where I listen to gravelly voices Who sing of pain […]

Penance, Repentance or Metanoia

Last Saturday I reblogged See, there’s this thing call biology’s informed post, Metanoia. I wanted to take it a step further because I thought her words so important to our Christian walk. As we are about to celebrate the birth of our Savior, what do we choose to celebrate? Do we celebrate our own salvation? […]

What if…

If we are Christians, aren’t we obliged to follow Christ? I think American Christians have become indurated to violence, to irrational killing, to injustice, to a lack of integrity, to a concrete refusal of mercy. We have become Americans first and Christians second, third or fourth after our loyalty to a political party, ideology, sports […]

His Embrace

When we search His call, abide in love, as we open all to God above in our praise and prayer, we worship and declare our God none to compare, we feel His embrace, feel His embrace.   If we see neighbors through Father’s eyes (neighbors – those heirs who we may despise), it’s not “them” […]

Where do I Praise God?

Some say church is the only place Where I can lift God’s name in praise Yet every day I feel His grace And worship Him in many ways.   At rest outside, coffee in hand, Trees, flowers, birds – His grand displays – Remind me how His beauty spans; My tears of joy to Him […]

King

  Presidents, prime ministers, kings Don masks, but who’s pulling their strings? Play one-up, describe their plans and smile, The cameras they try to beguile; tongues are lying.   They preach of a faith called Despair; Fear of “isms” are lurking there And if we fall into that trap We’ll soon with an “ism” be […]

In Worship

In worship, God swells my heart glad and He in my embrace is clad. From Spirit is my worship born at home or church (in joy or mourn), my own aubade.   This worship is not held to place; Some find it best in open space and seeing God is best observed where grass to […]

Simply and Honestly Yourself in Worship

“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. Those who worship him must do it out […]
