Our Greatest Treasure

I first heard the term “consolation prize” on a television game show when I was growing up. Since I don’t watch television much, I wonder if this term is still used. As a consolation for losing, a small cash prize was given to a player who did not win the grand prize. Why am I talking about game shows and …

Thankful – Even for Air

Working with kids is always surprising and many times is humbling too.  One of the highlights of my year is getting to meet with and co-teach our children who are going through the Communicant membership process.  We meet with them monthly and each time we meet, I find that their answers challenge, encourage or convict me in some way.  This …

Clearing the Air

This is the time of year when a steady humming fills the air, from the rising to the setting of the sun. The sources of this whirring are those giant leaf collection vacuum trucks that scour the streets for curbside pick-up. Their noise may be far off or nearby, and they hum in tune with countless leaf blowers pushing the …

Going Beneath the Surface

With much excitement and a little trepidation, we purchased our first ever 15-foot above-ground pool earlier this year…in fact already in March before the price quadrupled!
