Of Alabaster Cities

I voted early this year. It was an interesting experience, knowing that many of those in line with me were voting differently than I was. In contrast to what we see on the news, it was a very civil and friendly experience. There was nice conversation in the line about the Texans and the weather and the upcoming weekend. The people working the polling place were happy and very pleasant, both to the voters and to one another. The guy who gave me my “I Voted” sticker was absolutely jolly. There was no doubt that all of us, [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service.

Renewing a Right Spirit: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for July 31, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:42-05:00 July 31st, 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 Loving God, My father used to ask me a single question, over and over again, when he was angry about something I had done. He would inquire “what were you thinking?” My answer was usually, “Nothing. I wasn’t thinking anything. Dad, obviously I just wasn’t thinking.” That never seemed to satisfy him. I don’t suppose it satisfies you, either, when I do something that is hurtful to others, hurtful to myself, and most importantly draws me farther away from [...]

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 all that is wonderful and good and lovely and true, God who shows up in the midst of all of our darkness and pain, I walked through the rain forest last week with a guide who showed me a million wonderful things I would have missed on my own. I would have missed the marvelous leafcutter ants, who carry their tiny leaf cuttings into an ant colony underground, a village which [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

  We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER Come, Holy Spirit! God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – I long for you to come and fill me, fill your whole church, with your power.  I read how on the day of Pentecost, your Holy Spirit fell upon those ordinary people, and they were transformed. They spoke in other tongues, that people of every race and tribe might know your love. They worked miracles that could not be accomplished by their own [...]

I have made some wonderful friends, and served in some wonderful churches. I have laughed a lot, and worked pretty hard, and had the joy of seeing fruit of my labor. And the neatest part of all was that I got to do all of that with you. [...]

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 by Susan Dunwoody Sitting in the doctor’s office with my husband and children, together we received the diagnosis. Ovarian cancer. The room stood still as I went from being in perfect health to the shock of cancer. I was shaken to the depth of my soul. I said to the Lord, “Are you sure you have the right person here? Are you [...]
