Pastor Heather’s Blog

Anybody remember that great story, Bread and Jam for Frances?  The story focuses on Frances’ desire to eat only bread and jam, for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner.  And drama ensues when her parents grant her wish.  But for me what sticks out in the story is not Frances’ desires, but rather the description of […]

Tired of Waiting Christmas is a “hope-filled” season.  It reminds me that, just as there is much to lose, there is always much more to gain. One thing we must never lose, however, is hope.

What has come to be called the Civil Rights Movement has been idealized as the years have passed. However, as a young […]

RSVP Last week, I wrote about an “odd duck” named Dr. Ray. The point of the post was that even an odd duck needs a flock to fly in and, in some way, we are all odd ducks, since each one of us is divinely and uniquely created. I also asked if some of you […]

A Creature of Habit Okay, I admit that I am a creature of habit. I am not sure what the ramifications of O.C.D. really are, but if I am anywhere near accurate in my interpretation of the symptoms, I am certainly afflicted with it. As I reported last week, my day begins at roughly 4:30 […]
