    Matt 28: 16-20; 07022017; 4 Pentecost I want to thank y’all for your prayers for Cookie and I, while I was away.  It was a very difficult thing, to be in a hospital 1600 miles away from Cookie and home.  Thankfully, my brothers were there to help me and to do all the driving, and […]

    Gen. 1: 1-2: 4; 06112017; Trinity Sunday  I was reading the Wisconsin State Journal online this past week and learned that one of Wisconsin’s legislators believes that the earth is only 6,000 years old.  While that might not be big news in some parts of the country, it certainly is in Wisconsin.  They’ve got beer […]

    06042017; 1 Cor. 12:3b-13; Pentecost Sun. Much of my life was spent waiting on the Spirit.  I confess I was not the brightest light in the closet, when it came to such churchy things.  I eventually learned the Spirit had been there for me all along, but I was too distracted to embrace it.  I […]

    John 14: 15-21; 05212017; 6 Easter  Early on in my career as a police officer, I was on my way to a call when I heard what no cop ever wants to hear.  Two officers were being dispatched to my own address at one o’clock in the morning!  The dispatcher informed the officers that some […]

    1 Peter 2: 2-10; 05142017; 5 Easter I was looking at my backyard flower garden this past week, and noticed that someone had been knawing on some flowers.  I also saw that new holes had appeared in my garden.  Since we have a reasonably secure wooden fence, the suspect list quickly dwindled down to our […]

    John 10: 1-10; 05072017; 4 Easter Over the years, I’ve read a number of Bible commentaries and such concerning the behavior of sheep.  I have to tell you, I’ve been surprised at how much these writings can vary.  Some writers have portrayed the sheep as relatively intelligent animals, each contributing to the strength of the […]

    Luke 24; 13-35; 3 Easter; 04302017 While thinking about our Sunday lessons this week, I was remembering my very first day at Nashotah House seminary.  As I unpacked my stuff that day, it came to me that everything I’d done for the past two years had been focused on getting to the room I now […]

  8. You Send Me

    John 20: 19-31; 2 Easter; 04232017 I was thinking that I should have asked Darryl to have the choir sing “Darling, you send me” this morning.  It’s been sixty years since Sam Cooke wrote that tune, but some songs are timeless, aren’t they?  And if our Gospel story has a theme today, it is, Darling, […]

Easter is, amongst other things, a celebration of many families.  As we heard in our Gospel story this morning, Jesus was […]
