Work To Be Still

I was preparing to wash our family van…not the little mini-van but our big 15 passenger van
that has the duty of driving us all over the United States. I grabbed my bucket, soap, towels and
glass cleaner. I knew that I was in for a looong process of scrubbing off smeared bug juice and
cleaning up petrified French fries and old soda pop spills.

Head Space

I was on my computer looking up a sermon by one of my favorite preachers. I clicked on the
YouTube picture and waited for the sermon to load but soon realized it was a sermon about
this preacher. It was another preacher railing on him and misrepresenting in so many ways.

Worry seems so natural

A couple of weeks ago at our church Gathering, in a sermon on Generous Living, I mentioned
that fear/anxiety is the enemy of generosity. It really got me to thinking about anxiety and
worry in general. I’d like to think of myself as a person of faith and trust in God but I have to
admit, there are a lot of things that have been causing me anxiety these days. I find my
thoughts wandering and my heart racing as I call to mind, things out of my control.
