As I mentioned in my last post, we’re getting ever so close to publication of Shlomo Attia’s breakthrough novel. And from the beginning of the process which began nearly four years ago, he warned me that writing this book and promoting his concepts might create controversy among my friends and acquaintances. He was right. I’m [...]

From The Word Among Us: Into your hands I commend my spirit. (Psalm 31:6) It’s Good Friday, the very day for which Jesus was born into the world. His whole life, everything he ever said or did, had been leading up to this day. Every miracle, every sermon, every word of forgiveness or challenge—none of [...]

Wow, is today’s Lenten Meditation from The Word Among Us perfect for me or what? The life of a freelance writer/author/social media marketer has always been my chosen path from the time I was old enough to talk (ok, the technologically advanced social media part came much later) — the God-given purpose I knew was [...]

Lenten Meditation: The Sign of Jonah

| February 20, 2013 | Comments (1)

From The Word Among Us: No sign will be given … except the sign of Jonah. (Luke 11:29) Public figures tend to speak candidly in smaller, private gatherings of firm supporters. But when they are in front of larger groups, they paint with broader brushstrokes and use crowd-pleasing language. Not so with Jesus! Upon seeing [...]

The day before Lent — otherwise known as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, is upon us already — hard to believe! I came across an interesting article about the Catholic Roots of Mardi Gras while researching this post that I thought I’d share in honor of the occasion: Mardi Gras, literally “Fat Tuesday,” has grown [...]

Top 5 Ways To Beat The Holiday Blues

Top 5 Ways To Beat The Holiday Blues

| December 17, 2012 | Comments (0)

Particularly in light of this past Friday’s diabolical crime against innocent children and adults in Newtown Connecticut, it seems a bit shallow for anyone unaffected personally by this tragedy to complain about having the blues this Christmas and Holiday Season. Certainly, this couldn’t possibly be a more horrendous time for the families and friends of [...]

Today’s Lenten meditation from The Word Among Us: “It is better for you.” (John 11:50) Like missing a new exit ramp on a familiar highway, the high priest Caiaphas was about to miss the new work God was doing in Jesus. Both he and Jesus began well, with a deep respect for the Temple and [...]

Today’s Lenten meditaion from WAU: “Believe the works.” (John 10:38) How can we know what God is like? How can we know him so inti­mately that we yield to his love and are changed? When Jesus said: “The Father and I are one,” he was call­ing people to examine his words and works so that [...]

Today’s Lenten meditation from Five Minutes with the Word: “He … cast them into the white-hot furnace.” (Daniel 3:20) If we just look at the basic story outline of this tale of Daniel and the fiery furnace, we could easily get lost in the excitement. Nebuchadnezzar is king of almost the entire known world. He [...]

Today’s Lenten meditation from the Word Among Us: The annunciation of the Lord I will not tempt the Lord! (Isaiah 7:12) In today’s first reading, King Ahaz is being offered something that he may not want—a victory that comes not from fighting but from passive waiting.

Today’s Lenten meditation uses the story of Hosea to illustrate an important lesson — one that has great relevance in today’s “instant gratification”, “me first” culture. From Five Minutes with the Word: “I will love them freely.” (Hosea 14:5) In Hosea’s time, more than seven centuries before Christ, the north­ern kingdom of Israel was locked [...]
