Marked With A Heart

On my walk around the section tonight I felt the Spirit move me to check out the neighbor’s new calves. I was particularly taken by the one on the left. Many years ago, when I sensed my first call was ending, I showed up at the farm Jerry and Joann, two gracious hosts who...

You started it…

Have you ever notice that the phrase “you started it” is seemingly hard-wired within each of us.  Our fascination with who started it comes from a time that is earlier than we can even remember.  I believe this phenomenon is so strong within us that it truly...

Full Circle

Today we visited Eisleben, an interesting and notable town because it is where Martin Luther was born and died, but he never lived there.  This photo is of a statue in his honor in the town square, with the spire of the church where he was baptized on his first full day of his...

Reforming Conversation

When we left Lincoln, the heat index was over 100 degrees.  Since arriving in Wittenberg we’ve enjoyed rainy and cool weather, with temperatures in the mid-60s.  What an awesome relief.  It truly does feel like October here! From the start of the trip we have uplifted...

a puzzle of the Last Supper

A Puzzled Look

  My wife’s family loves to do puzzles.  Over the years her father would put out a large (2000-5000 piece) puzzle every couple of years and the family would stand around and work on it over conversation.  It was regularly at the center of activity during family gatherings....

Idols

Two days ago I had the privilege of seeing my boyhood idol, Steve Martin, at the Pinewood Bowl. I did what I normally don’t do and purchased tickets in the second row. I’ll admit I still feel guilty. Usually when I have something special planned, I’m pretty...

(Udoro) Dedication

In the English language the word dedication has a couple of definitions… Last Sunday we dedicated a church – the Udoro sub-parish of our sister congregation, Mudio Lutheran Church. For some, it was a once in a generation experience, for others once in a lifetime. In...

Inspired by the Spirit

Rose and I began our last day by taking in the Anne Frank Museum.  It is located in a historically Jewish neighborhood, the Hackescher Market.  The  museum was hard to find, tucked at the back of an alley – that irony was not lost on us. We again immersed ourselves in a...

Remembering & the “C” in G

Every once in a while, Rose will comment about a little old Germany woman walking on the streets.  She will say that the woman reminds her of her gross-tante (great-aunt).  Rose is half German and speaks fondly of Gross-Tante (that’s what they called her).  She was stern,...

At times it is personal…

Today Rose and I ventured to the area just south of the Brandonburg Gate to the “Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.”  In essence, this is Germany’s Holocaust Memorial.  Above ground, it consists of the “Field of Stelae,” which are raised...
