Vision and Mission

We are on twin, synergistic journeys—the journey inward and the journey outward.

We pursue biblically based, grace-enabled spiritual transformation in order to be the cooperative friends of Jesus who, for the sake of others, live constant lives of creative goodness through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Good Friday

April 15, 2014
Good Friday Am I a stone, and not a sheep, That I can stand, O Christ, beneath Thy cross, To number drop by drop Thy blood's slow loss, And yet not weep? Not so those women loved Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee; Not so fallen Peter weeping bitterly; Not so the thief was moved; Not so the Sun and Moon Which hid their faces in a starless sky, A horror of great darkness at broad noon-- I, only I. Yet give not o'er, But…

Holy Week: Seasonal Reflections 2014

April 8, 2014
-- Click here for Times and Locations for Holy Week -- ---- • ---- Descending with Jesus into the remembrance of his passion past, I look ahead to the shadow hope of resurrection cresting near, beneath any crosses I bear. Explanations and justifications all pale to the color of pain I see among humankind. Strangely, I am comforted seeing that Christ’s resurrection light also contains all the hues of the human condition, including the color of our…

The Afternoon of Lent

March 28, 2014
After years of living through days, I’ve observed that afternoons are hard for me. I prefer mornings; they hold more promise. In the a.m., I am energized by a new start, the vision of achievement, or maybe I am simply lifted by the vaguely purposeful parade of people heading out to work or to school or to their tasks and errands. But in the afternoon, everything seems to slow to a crawl. What I set out to do in the morning has taken more time than expected.…

Stop Talking. Just Listen.

March 25, 2014
“So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him. Then the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly, bring out a robe—the best one—and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. And get…

Following Jesus into Exile

March 18, 2014
But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. (Romans 11:17-18) The apostle Paul uses the metaphor of the olive tree to describe how God has included the Gentiles in his family, a family that is rooted in the faithful people of Israel. The non-Jews were, in Paul’s description, grafted into the rooted life of the Jewish people,…

Father, into your hands I commit my spirit… Bed-Time Praying

March 12, 2014
Christians for centuries have practiced varied forms of praying just before they go to sleep. Everything from monastic and liturgical forms of Evening Prayer or Compline, the Ignatian Daily Examen to simple prayers of thanksgiving or a gestured surrender of care to God. Communing with God before sleep provides the body and soul a sacramental closure punctuating the day’s end in order to enter more fully and intentionally into the rest of God, making distinct…

The Journey Continues

March 3, 2014
Isn’t it a bit odd when people send out Christmas letters in January? Not a bad thing, just saying… Or when neighbors leave their outdoor Christmas lights up until Valentines Day—what’s up with that? I have a childhood memory of my mom leaving the Christmas tree up so long one year that with her help we kids decorated it with Valentine’s Day paper hearts we cut out, colored and sprinkled with glitter. Ah—the 60s; those were simpler times! The…

Stay Connected

February 26, 2014
In the past few years, I have discovered the life and beauty of Wisconsin’s north woods. Three times now, when summer rolls around, we’ve retreated to a lakehouse for a week with dear friends—and it feeds my soul. And here’s what I’ve noticed about the north woods: lots of stuff grows right out of the ground up there. I guess I’ve become too accustomed to Southern California where we place things on the ground or over the ground. Buildings,…
