This journey we’re on
Looking at the many intersections in life and questions we face along the way.
Life, faith, stuff
LIFE. Each of our lives is a hero’s journey. We may not feel like it a lot of the time. Sometimes we forget what the quest is about. But we’re here, on Earth, on this journey.
FAITH. We are born with a hole — something missing. Then we spend much of our lives trying to fill that hole. Faith is essential in that process. Faith is the stepping out of where I know I am to place confidence in something I haven’t seen or tested yet. If we didn’t have faith, we’d never take risks.
STUFF. On life’s journey, we carry around stuff. Some of it is helpful, some of it holds us back. Some of it we hang on to because we don’t know how to put it aside.
THE INTERSECTIONS OF LIFE. The forks in the road where things get interesting and choices are made. Mostly small choices. Seemingly inconsequential. Until we one day realize that together all those little choices formed the fabric and pattern of our lives. Then we see that they made all the difference. It is here we see what we are made of or yet capable of becoming.
Keep calm and carry on?
It was a regular Sunday morning at St. Andrew’s Church. Except as I looked into the sanctuary, it was way darker than usual. I realized electricity was out. How would this work out?
To be or not to be — or rather: to live or to exist
We each have so many years (which we don’t know up front) and then we’re done.
“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” ―Winston S. Churchill
Welcome to serendipity
Happy accidents. Chance encounters or events that lead to things we couldn’t have imagined.
“Serendipity is the faculty of finding things we did not know we were looking for.” — Glauco Ortolano

Half full or half empty? And does it matter?
The scene: A glass with water in it. The water is at the half-way mark. Which leads to a crucial question: Is the glass half empty? Or is it half full? Which could make all the difference.
