Safely socially distanced in my little tire house, able to wander the woods every day with a big dog, the new viral reality often seems distant, not an issue on my part of Earth. Getting in my car for a weekly run to the store, the mask on the seat quickly reminds me that things are very different on most of the planet. As virus cases and deaths slow here and grow there, we both move closer to a new, semi-open state and farther from our pre-viral, normal past. Read more

Years ago, before becoming a pastor, I was perilously close to being fired. My job as a manager began with such promise, moving the family from Richmond to Virginia Beach for what seemed to be the opportunity of a lifetime. I oversaw a thriving metropolitan automobile dealership. At first, everything seemed fine, but it wasn’t long before sales declined and problems appeared. I was working harder than ever. What was wrong? Read more

I had a feeling the bear would be early. With such a mild winter seemingly done, what point was there to sleeping in for a hungry bear? So, there he was, 40 minutes into spring, a large void in the yard, hoping to find and tear down the bird feeders but finding only a little seed on the ground. My early bear hunch had me taking in the feeders nightly. Sorry big guy, no snacks this year. Read more

My children cannot remember life before their great-grandfather lived next door. They love him and hold him dear. They see how hard it is to be 90 years old, and how much the interactions he has with his family sustain him. Read more
