  • We hope that you’re enjoying this Monday during Christmastide! Some of you are still on vacation and others are back to work/regular routine. However you are entering this week, know that you are loved!


  • Happy Winter Solstice! Today marks the shortest day of the year. It’s the day with fewest sunlight hours...the day our hemisphere is tilted farthest from the sun.


  • Peace might feel like an elusive state of being...a thing we long for and yet feels so far beyond our grasp. So here’s the invitation: find a moment, or two. And allow that moment to soak in, deep into your bones. Allow that moment to hold you, carry you, and offer you solace. 


  • As you embrace this day, continue praying for our health care workers, our teachers, and so many more as the Covid-19 numbers keep climbing.


  • Walking this morning, it was hard not to take in the splendidness of this day. The sky is a perfect fall blue, the air crisp but not bitter, and the leaves still fragrant and crunching. I’m grateful for moments and days like this that allow me to rest in a moment and image of gratitude.
