Yes, We Are Blessed

Dear Saints, To begin our November newsletter by saying , “It’s that time of year again”….or “it’s the ‘holiday’ season and time to give thanks” … is not only trite and hackneyed (my favorite SAT word) but can also produce anxiety and/or dread around both the holidays and stewardship.  It’s also like every other (boring) […]

Don’t Forget to Listen

Dear Saints, Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy on all sorts of fun things (and even some home projects) including movies and tv series. One of my favorite shows is Endeavor. It’s a wonderful British murder-mystery (much more mystery than murder). Endeavor is the prequel to the famous older PBS Masterpiece shows: “Inspector Morse” […]
