info_outline A Fathers Day Chat with my kids 09/02/2021

info_outline The Liberating Power of Trust 08/24/2021
The Liberating Power of Trust When we trust people, everything is easier. I trusted Andy, despite his taste in running pants on a recent trail run and it was fabulous. If nations and people of influence trusted each other more, so many problems could be solved.

info_outline How many apples in this seed? 08/15/2021
How many apples in this seed? It is possible to count the number of seeds in an apple. But impossible to count the number of apples in a single seed. Seeds grow in their own time frame and we do well to trust this process rather than to try to manipulate it.

info_outline Embracing Challenges 07/27/2021
Embracing Challenges For most of us, self-discipline is a challenge and we need to get involved in events that inspire us and hold us accountable. No one will sponsor me for Dry July, but if it was dry from coffee and chocolate, I might get a few more takers.
info_outline The Good Shepherd. 07/25/2021
The Good Shepherd. The Bible mentions sheep over 200 times. And as I often relate, feeling a bit stupid and lost, I like to hear what it has to say. Turns out Sheep shouldn’t try to be tigers and actually need other sheep and the humility to accept a bit of guidance.
