Rocks and Watermelon Seeds

Think about who you can offer love to. What simple gifts can you offer someone that could be very meaningful in their life? Do you offer love that heals? Maybe you can help change lives one small moment at a time.

Rocks and Watermelon Seeds

Those Who Grow

Today I’m going to talk about personal growth. Growth and change take vulnerability and courage. Are we will still exploring our own identities and thinking about our habits and the thoughts we carry each day? How many of us get stuck in a pattern and never think about the world around us, how we can use our gifts and talents to bring positive changes to our communities, or how we can join in with other community members to improve the quality of life for others while we also increase our own strengths and find happiness in pursuits we had never imagined?

Tables or Sides

I used to naively believe that there never had to be “sides.” There never had to be choosing who to stand with because I thought we could learn to stand together. I believed in tables…I believed in conversations. I believed in being willing to hear another person’s voice, to understand another person’s life experiences. But then life taught me that some people are unwilling to come to the table and listen. Come to the table…join the conversations…there’s laughter and joy on the other side of the tears we will shed when we realize all the unnecessary losses that have occurred when we excluded people from the table.

All That Is Good

Today I’m going to talk about all that is good. I have thought long and hard about what I consider to be the good in the world…what I will choose to love and be a voice for as much as I am able. I think we all need to use this time to define what we will stand for and what we define as all that is good in this world. Hang on to all that is good. Now is the time to embrace the good, share the love, offer hope, enable healing, and find joy and love and hope for yourself in the process.

Writing Your Faith Journey

In this podcast, I discuss my book, Writing Your Faith Journey, which challenges readers to put their faith into words. This resource encourages people of all faiths to leave behind a faith legacy for children and grandchildren or family members and friends that will include thoughts on various faith topics that have been important on their faith journey. The resource can also be used to start community conversations that explore our faith foundations. Recorded at Lipscomb University’s Summer Celebration in 2009.

Writing Your Faith Journey

A Tear Shed For Me

Today I offer a reading of a Service of Healing originally written for a worship setting in Atlanta, Georgia. This reading reminds us to hang on to hope, to love, and to all that is good as we struggle in these uncertain times.

A Tear Shed For Me

Nurses and Their Tradition of Sacrifice

Today I’m going to talk about nurses and their tradition of sacrifice. I’m recording this during the shelter-at-home mandate in my city during this coronavirus pandemic. I want to use this podcast to thank some of the people who are selflessly working to help bring this crisis to an end and who are working to help ease the suffering of all who are ill at this time. I’m also going to talk about some of the famous nurses in United States history.

Nurses and Their Tradition of Sacrifice

Today Together

In this podcast, I talk about people making one right choice at a time today. There’s a quote from Frozen 2 that says, “When one can see no future, all one can do is the next right thing.” I’m discussing what each of us can do in the moment we are in to not only help others but to also bring joy to ourselves as we do it. There are some wonderful things that individuals and communities are doing to think outside of their own worries and work to help others.

Today's Historians

Today I’m going to talk about the role historians play in whose stories we are hearing and which people we are seeing. They are uncovering stories of people that have brought hope and healing and innovative ideas to our communities in the past and paved the way for us to do so today. Historians are reminding us that people can make a difference and bring about so much good in the world. These stories being brought to light by today’s historians help me better understand the stories of the people around me…the diverse people who make up my community—my local community and my global community. They weave all of us together through a foundation of hope and courage and perseverance that we may have never known we shared.

To Those Seeking Truth

Today I talked about those people seeking truth. When I look back over the podcasts I’ve done throughout the last two years, I’ve chosen topics that need a light shined on their truths…I’ve highlighted groups that really seek to know the truth about people and circumstances and work to help us see the truth about others. Life itself is bigger than any one person or group of people. Life and its accompanying breath and love and hope draw us all together in an interconnected bond that we often fail to realize. When we disconnect ourselves from the bigger picture, we lose part of our humanity and part of our connection to a love and a hope bigger than ourselves.
