Return to the Light

According to the old religion, at 12:11pm, EST, on December 21, the goddess will begin her journey from the underworld back to the light of day, eventually giving birth to spring in just a few short months. Trust me. If you’ve shoveled snow in the past week like we...

Twenty Shopping Days Till Christmas!

Yeah, Dr. T., like we really needed to hear that! Is that what you thought? Did your mind race to the shopping you may have left to do, or decorating that stills needs to be done, or perhaps even last minute travel arrangements to spend time over the holidays...

Happy Thanksgiving

  Another holiday is upon us when society expects we will act a certain way and experience an approved of emotional response. In a world where everyone is a unique expression of God this expectation is a recipe for disappointment. None of us experience events exactly the same way....

Fall

  According to the Gregorian calendar we’ve only been experiencing fall here in the northern hemisphere for less than two weeks – since the autumnal equinox on September 22. Did the cooler weather and changing leaves sneak up on you again? Perhaps that’s because Mother Earth has had this...

Happy New Year!

The last day of 2011! The CSLCV community began our release of this year earlier this week at our Recharge on Wednesday service. One of the points I made was something I learned from another CSL minister many years ago.   “Release” of the old is not just about...

The Love Month

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Thanks to mass marketing wanting us to believe everyone should be in a fairy tale relationship, February 14 can mean expectations from those in relationships and gloom for singles. Someone told me that Valentine’s Day doesn’t matter because “it is just a made-up holiday”....

What Resolution?

So did you make any New Year’s resolutions? How’s that working out for you? I avoid the gym every year for the first three weeks of January. I work out most of the time at home anyway so it’s no big deal, but gyms are notoriously crowded for during...

Freedom in Darkness

Hope you missed not having a blog the last couple of weeks – my computer system and I had a “minor” issue. The system (Vista – and don’t start with me!) froze, the system had to be re-installed, and the external backup drive failed. The result is that I...

Wrap it up!

If you thought wrapping was done now since the holidays are past, think again. The end of the calendar year is tonight. This is a perfect opportunity to wrap up 2004 and look ahead to 2005. I’m not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. Many are made under the...

Nothing’s Perfect, Everything’s Perfect

I’m having one of those days when do matter what I plan out, with ever good intention mind you, nothing seems to be working right. I find myself tongue-tied when speaking with others – and amusing situation to most people given that I seldom am without a comment on...
