This is the weirdest Holy Week I have ever experienced.
“You need to slow down and let your spirit catch up with your body.” That’s the advice my friend, Peg Horton, used to give me.
G0iving people permission to grieve may be one of the more important things I do in my role as both pastor and chaplain.
Over the past year it’s been difficult to write for this blog. Depression over the state of my culture is a big reason why.
Sometimes you just need to share a reflection with the world. A recent memorial service was one of those times.
This has been a tough week. I’ve been a pastor for 18 years, and in that time I’ve dealt with a lot of death. It kinda comes with the calling. This week has been different.
