During my Christian Education course in Seminary, I was introduced to 3 books which have become a part of my spiritual disciplines. They are Imaging the Word, Volumes 1-3. Each volume contains art, poetry, photographs and musical compositions about what it means to be a child of God. First Place, where the Midwest District Office… Continue Reading And Now for Something Completely Different

When I was very young, my parents would send my sister and me to my aunt’s house in Columbus, Ohio.  That is where 4 of my father’s siblings lived:  My Aunts Clairette and Amanda, and my Uncles Marion and Obadiah (who we called Obie).  My Aunt Clairette was a pastor at a time when women… Continue Reading “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

My mother made dinner rolls from scratch, just about every Sunday. There was a process that began with the heating of the milk. Over the span of 45 minutes she would combine… Continue Reading A Good Meal

I’m going to date myself as I begin this Puzzler’s Corner.  Sometime in the last century, when Kevin Bacon and the films he was in were very popular, someone introduced a game, in which you could connect other stars to him within 6 films.  That’s how I first learned about the 6 Degrees of Separation… Continue Reading 6 Degrees
