Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. – John 2:6 NKJV I’ve read those words countless times over the years. But as the man sitting across from me in the circle read them aloud, I felt a lightning …
My physical therapist preached to me today. Okay, so he didn’t know he was doing it. I was telling him about how I have been waking up with achy muscles in the morning since I started sleeping on my back. He explained that maintaining this position would make my back stronger in the long run …
How do you grieve loss on such a grand scale? Those were the first words I wrote in my journal on the evening of September 11, 2001. I don’t remember anything else I wrote. It’s been fourteen years since that day that I felt our country would never be the same. As a flight attendant, …
