E is for . . .


For your viewing pleasure (or choose your own word), here’s another Faith Mutters musing ala YouTube. As I’ve said, give me some props for spending so much money on the special effects…takes a while to get the gray hair just right.

(If you need to see the video introduction for this exciting series of mutters about faith…try here.)

(Another) T is for . . .


If you read this today, when I’m posting my next video adventure, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!!

But, if you’re reading this after Thanksgiving, I can still say, have a thankful day. I hope you enjoy my brief recorded riff on table . . . and then get on to more important stuff of your day!



B is for . . .


How does that saying from Jesus go: my yoke is easy and my burden is light (in Matthew 11, I think)?

Jesus lied! Jesus snookered us.

Living out faith is more rather than less a burden. Forgive another? Hard work! Turn the other cheek? Takes a massive effort (and it hurts too)! Give all of your treasure or take the cloak off your back and happily hand it to another?

Please, show me the changing room so that I can shed the burden of faith for the carefree clothes of not caring and cynicism. Wait. Faith is a burden. And rightly so. In the “burden” of forgiveness, in the hard work of loving another, we glimpse Jesus’ call to love the neighbor.

Every action is a burden, weighing almost exactly the amount of the next person who needs your compassion.
