2nd Sunday After Easter – Church Back Home – April 30, 2017

This Gospel reading is a favorite of mine. Do you notice that Jesus refers to himself, and only himself, as the shepherd? The rest are hirelings and no matter what might be suggested in some people’s titles, the fact remains that all are hirelings. Something useful to keep certain people in perspective.

Here is also where Jesus speaks of other sheep he3 has which are “not of this fold”. He does not say how many other folds there are, or how many other sheep there are, and he makes no claim that they have anything in common with the people he’s addressing here! And this gives hope to many who have not been marching in lock-step behind one particular leader.

So much to know, and so much to prepare to learn!

If you see or hear something that others do not, or if you have a significant dream, who are the ones who are communicating with you, and what does it mean?  It’s a question which most of us have at times in our lives and for some of us, it nags us almost constantly.

Following the death of a loved one, a series of very vivid dreams concerning that loved one or what that loved one knows about you.  Lying in bed late at night, depressed and not quite asleep, and suddenly a voice calls your name.  Someone you love and miss appears in a dream to show you something.  The possibilities are limitless, but sometimes a dream is only a dream.

The task for each of us is to gain understanding of what we are seeing  

Blessed Be!

1st Sunday After Easter – Church Back Home – April 23, 2017

Here, the Gospel and Epistle readings are nicely tied together. The Gospel focuses on the aftermath of the crucifixion when the disciples have locked themselves away out of fear, and Jesus comes to them. Jesus then gives them peace, authority and a mission.

In the Epistle, we are told of how we are able to overcome the world because of what we have now.

SPECIAL NOTE: We’re back, and hopefully you’ll like the changes. The first is a special prayer section just before the Last Gospel to remember and pray for loved ones who have passed.

April 22, 2017 – No, You Are Not Crazy!

What is the difference between your friend who has a vision of a goddess or an angel, and the TV preacher who claims that his god tolls him to tell you to support a particular politician?  Quite a lot, probably, beginning with the fact that real visions do not come to support partisan agendas.

People can and do see, hear and feel things from the spiritual.  And, if it happens to you, you probably do not need the services of a psychiatrist.  But you should use common sense in making use of what you are given.

If you are entrusted with something, you are intrusted to use it with wisdom.  Knowledge is power, but wisdom is what gives that power strength and credibility.

Blessed Be!

April 15, 2017 – Prayer Composition 101!

Prayer is just possibly the most powerful thing you can do in working with your deities.  No matter the name, number, or gender, deities like to receive prayer, and they do respond.  

Prayer can be corporate, such as in a group.  But it can also be alone, sometimes solitary and sometimes even absolutely secret.  And, of course, what you pray is between you and your deity, and nobody else.

The only thing left to consider is what you are praying for or about.  There are indeed some lines you don’t want to cross.  But, there are ways to bring about what you need.  Never forget that your deity’s will is your happiness and well-being.

Blessed Be!
