  • The now is God’s present filled with his presence

    By Jean Pelletier
    Special to the Beacon

    Occasionally in Fran’s columns, she refers to “Hubby Dear” as either making a suggestion or crossing over the boarders of her guarded domain. To her faithful readers, I must confess that at the present moment, the end of the pen is in hubby’s hands. She might not rejoice at that.

  • The women of the world pose a serious question: How many loaves have you?

    I can still smell the yeasty, sweet, enticing aroma of baking bread as the bus ride took us past the Wonder Bread Bakery in East Hartford, Conn. Probably a mile or two before we spotted the factory, the odors bathed us, encasing us in a comforting fragrance. It was far more than the scent of an irretrievable past. It was a reminder that simple things are not to be trashed.

  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase

    The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us that the whole staircase of faith is elusive but essential to our living faithfully. I have experienced that reality. I am continuing to experience it as I enter and re-enter the emergency department of Brunswick Community Hospital. Each time Hubby Dear gently transports me to the place where faith tells us healing happens, I delve more deeply into the mystery of redemptive suffering.

  • Riding the roller coaster of life is exhilarating, exhausting and exasperating

    I was going along swimmingly, a coastal kind of adverb, when the first rumblings of “dis-ease” caught my attention.
