The Way of Love

The Way of Love ain't easy [pause]. Love isn't warm fuzzies, rosy specs and feet barely touching the ground. Love's more than sympathy, it's grounded and sacrificial. I was touched by this account of two women from the Episcopal Church who were showing kindness to protesters on the patio of St. John’s Episcopal Church in... Continue Reading →

We had a wonderful visit to Maple Glen Garden this afternoon, the garden was full of colour. And as I wandered along, I found that Solomon's Seal is flowering at the moment. Here's one of the photos I took ... looking at it made me think of the Royal Wedding sermon - The Power of... Continue Reading →
