I wrote this statement on the inside front cover of my journal: “I need to establish a rhythm that feels sane, reflects a deep love for God, and a respect for how He made me.”  Lately this statement has been the meditation and longing of my life.  In these past months, there has been a deepening of the truth of who I am and who I am not.

I shared in January that I felt called to explore joining a holistic wellness ministry called Alive & Well Women.  I never expected that this exploration would lead to more clarity of who God has made me to be, and ultimately that I was not called to join this ministry at this time!   (more…)

It’s been my observation that no matter how great or glorious the  institution, the higher up you go in leadership, the more ugliness you see.  Ugliness in terms of power plays, decision-making, or just the general muck that comes with politics.  At the same time, it seems that no matter how bad it gets in the upper realms of leadership, the “end-users” such as students, parishioners, etc. may actually be quite happy with the institution (more…)
