Love Demonstrated: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for December 18, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:36-05:00 December 18th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, Some people are easy to love. I feel love for them in my heart, and genuinely want them to know how much I love them. These are my wife, my parents and in-laws, my children and grandchildren, my friends and colleagues and partners in ministry. I feel so blessed to have these people in my life. Still, I don’t let them know how much I love them, at least not enough. I confess that I [...]

Joyful Expectation

by Suzi Pitts I’ve spent time behind the line at Kanakuk summer camp waiting to see our son after 26 days at camp. He’d never been away from us for anything close to a month and I am trying to be cool as I wait for the counselors to drop the rope and allow our entrance. How I have been waiting for this moment. We chat distractedly with the other parents, and finally, they drop the rope. We all walk in, then fast walk, and eventually stop caring about being cool and jog towards our kid. The hugs [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, Today is your day. It is a wonderful and amazing day. You made it. You gave it to me as a gift. And what is most important – you are going to go through it with me. That, in and of itself, is the root of my joy. So I will rejoice, today. I bet we have some great stuff today, you and I – some laughter, some fun, some sharing of hearts, [...]

You Were Right!

by Karen McCarver Carlos bounded out of the classroom, a huge smile on his face to meet his new mentor, Jon Norman. The year was 2007, and Carlos was an outgoing fourth grade student at Briarmeadow who had been referred by his teacher to KIDS HOPE. Jon’s challenge was to help this child focus, improve in reading and math, and more than anything to build a trusting, nurturing relationship with Carlos. Over the next two years a deep bond developed as they studied, played games, shot hoops together and talked about their lives. Jon recalls Carlos’ fifth grade [...]

Dinner’s At Five

by Adrienne McGee Houston’s “Tax Day Flood” wrecked my neighborhood—we were officially the hardest hit in Harris County. And, since we’re right next to Addick’s Reservoir, the water stayed. Every day, we walked around to see where the high water line was, which streets were still barricaded and who was still flooded. One week later, we were checking out one of the worst-hit corners, and it was awful. Houses still had water in them, a week after the rains. Front yards were full of what, a week before, had been homes. While exploring, our eyes were caught by [...]

Up and Out: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for June 19, 2016

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER God of love and peace, Sometimes, an evil spirit comes over me, God, just like one came over King Saul. Sometimes it is depression, or jealousy, or rage, or out of control ambition, or greed, or snarkiness, or all sorts of other spirits. I refuse to give in to those spirits, God. I won’t let them take me over completely. I turn to you, the only one who can rescue me from such a spirit. [...]

Always Give Thanks – Inside Out Habits with Dr. Pace June 17

By | 2017-03-28T14:57:02-05:00 June 17th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, Some weeks are harder than others. We had five funerals for lovely people at St. Luke’s over the last week, all members of our congregation. And there is the Orlando tragedy. And a baby is killed by an alligator. And it is really hot and miserable outside. And the parking lot is a long way off to walk in the heat. You know, all that sadness and annoyance kind of piles up [...]

Seeds Do Sprout by Sid Davis

There are stories that have a place in my memory like a painting in a gallery, and this one has earned a place of prominence. I tell parents and singers as often as I can that through our youth choir, Pure Sound, we are building a soundtrack in their heads, so when life gets hard—and it will, if it hasn’t already—this music and theology will help them through tough times. Years ago, Phillip Storey graduated a year early from Episcopal High School and went to spend a year with a family in South America where he could hone his Spanish [...]
