  • Do we want to spend our lives ‘Up in the Air?’

    Oscar night is long over. The subsequent days and nights agonizing over who should have won and didn’t, which outfits were outrageous and which were breathtaking, the back-stabbing and Monday morning quarterbacking have all been relegated to a distant past. All questions and comments will likely be resurrected next year.
    Now is the time for me to view the work of the contenders and to offer my own review and/or appraisal.

  • Spirituality is not a one-size-fits-all reality

    Two weeks ago, I was graced with an abundance of spiritual opportunities. I eagerly accepted the gift, despite the fact both invitations demanded an early departure from my somewhat leisurely Friday and Saturday schedules.

    At the time, I doubt I considered the offerings to be a call from God. I was simply responding to the graciousness of others. Upon reflection, the response was clearly not the whole story.
