Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – my walk into life – 1/5/14

At a church service of death and rebirth, I presented this poem with a prayer at the end, which I find useful from time to time. At times walking in the ways of Love, in the ways of God is about letting go of things I’ve collected along the way. Continue reading

Eagle’s flight – the gathering – healing – 12/16/13

I have been given the gift of healing. And I’ve even prayed for some people (and myself) to be healed, and on several occasions it has worked in a significant way. But I don’t do it very much. It’s not very well accepted in the circles I frequent, and I’ve not found a way to bring it in so that it gets more than ignored as a curious bump in the road. Continue reading

eaglesflight – the gathering – and in conclusion – 12/6/13

Jesus’ sermon on the mount. ends with a number of interesting musing points.

I’ve learned, slowly sometimes, to write down what I pray for. I’ve found that many times things happen to me, or my thoughts turn in strange, different directions during the week. And I don’t understand why I seem to have come to be in such an awkward place. And then I re-read or recall my recent prayers, and see the connection between what I’ve asked and what I’m currently walking through. And if I attend to what I’m going through, with grace, I begin to understand the prayer answer that is now asking me for a next step. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – prayer – 11/8/13

Some years ago, I begin to have questions, for God, about prayer. I’ve been in church all my life and had made commitments and been drawn in by things of God, and been a bit perplexed by some of the people interactions which seemed to be more formula based, than real personal interaction. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – Money – 11/3/13

Money. A root of all sorts of evil. A pearl of great price. An embodiment of value. We can’t live without it. And sometimes we can’t live with it. Continue reading
