Hope

For Pondering:

We are all looking for hope right now. Medical and political answers help, but are not THE answer. We remember, “The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.”

Different Christmas

For Pondering:

OK, so it probably won’t be the Christmas you had hoped….but….what one new twist is possible? On Christmas Eve we are inviting immediate neighbors to stand outside their house and light a candle at the same time we do, as we all sing Silent Night from our safe distance.

Blessing

For Pondering:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Maybe this Thanksgiving is a good time to be a blessing to someone else, rather than to expect a blessing. By blessing, we are blessed.

Dress Up

For Pondering:

Even without trick-or-treating and Halloween parties, I dare you to still dress up and have some fun. This year why not make it fun, silly or ridiculous rather than scary?

Columbus Day

For Pondering:

On this Columbus Day, the culturally-biased, heavily redacted history we were taught in school as children, has been updated with a narrative that is closer to the truth. What other inaccurate histories are currently being updated by fact and truth?
