Grounded in Faith

Help wanted

It happened like this one Sunday morning at my brother-in-law’s church in Minnesota: Someone had taped a bright-yellow sign to the front door, with an apology to those gathering for worship: “Sorry. We weren’t able to find anyone to serve as greeters today. Let yourself in!” The congregants shrugged, then opened the door,…

For better or for worse

The small country church where our family worships every Sunday turned 125 years old this summer. We celebrated with a pageant, picnics, and an old-fashioned “hymn sing” under a big white tent.

Help me find it

My friend Carder told me last week that his mom’s quote for his growing up years was “you never know”. I have let that settled a bit in my mind, wondering that phrase. It speaks to the unknown, the “you-never-know-what’s-going-to-happen-next” future. Honestly that is what has really been…

Don’t be so sure you’re seeing things correctly

It was a regular Sunday morning, my husband and I attended worship at our home church. Our senior pastor was on vacation so an associate pastor was preaching on Psalm 51, David’s prayer of repentance after Nathan the prophet confronted him with his sin against Bathsheba and her husband Uriah. My pastor described the backdrop of…
