As I shared in my message last week, it is a blessing to not only receive blessings, but also to give them. I have been able to offer blessings for this community of faith for two years. Yesterday's service and reception blessed me beyond my wildest imaginatio...

When we have peace, we are truly blessed.

I read a story recently about BlessU-2, a robotic priest, who offers blessings when activated by a tap on its touch screen chest. A weary pilgrim can even stipulate which language — as long as it is German, English, Fre...

"Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go from here?" These words come from a song of the same name by the musical group, Chicago. It could also be the words of a congregation and an interim pastor as a ministry comes to an end.

Do you remember that first writing project you usually got from your teacher when you returned to school in the Fall? I can't recall how many times, I had to address the question in the title of my article when I was a kid returning to school. I don't know abo...
