All Things Rohr

Today is our monthly DAWG (Day Alone With God) and I decided to read all the Richard Rohr I could get my hands on in this given period of time.  I am not doing a good job getting through it. Every sentence is pretty much rocking my world. I have to pause, re-read, ponder, read […]

Terrific (or Terrible) Tuesday

Will it be a Terrific or Terrible Tuesday tomorrow?  As we’ve gotten closer and closer to November 8, I’ve noticed my heartbeat starting to race and my blood pressure going up.  I’ve had to do multiple moments of intentional silence/breathing/meditation/prayer to get myself to a calm place.
