Restore Peace

Remember, release, reimagine and restore. This is the pattern we have followed in looking at Our Money Story. I remembered with you my childhood story of working all summer, mowing lawns and washing cars to buy a Ten-speed bike. It was a good story, a good experience, even a good lesson, but when it became…

Spiritual Practices for Dark Times

How are we to find tranquility of spirit when we are aware of the racial injustice of our times? How are we to find tranquility of spirit when the air is red with smoke from fires stoked by climate change? I have a tendency to pull back from the very things that I need most when…
