Pastoral Nuggets: The Stories of My Life — Water Pipe Moments

As I was thinking about Christmas and the cycle of life, my mind wandered back to the days of long ago that I spent growing up at 38 Borders Road in LaGrange, Georgia.

Pastoral Nuggets: Dancing in Your Hurricane

A portion of the lyrics to the song, “The Eye,” by Brandi Carlisle, state, “You can dance in a hurricane, but only if you’re standing in the eye.” That lyric is a poignant reminder that even in the fiercest of storms, there is usually an eye – a respite, if you will.

Pastoral Nuggets: Courage and Cowardice

“Courage and cowardice – both are contagious!” That’s a powerful statement, isn’t it? I don’t have a clue who said it. I found it written in some notes that I have in my iPhone. I’m bad about doing that. As I’m out and about and hear something that catches my ear I’ll whip out my iPhone and make a note. The only problem with that is, thinking I will … [Read more...]
