Hello to all, Well summer is coming down to the wire (at least emotionally if not on the calendar). Many young people are getting anxious about going back or just to college, high school, middle school, elementary school or nursery school. Many of their parents are sighing with relief. Their teachers are preparing for another year as well. It is a transition time. It is a time of change! Change is always difficult. It is also always a part of life. If we do not come to some sort of terms with change, we will not be able to deal with life as it is.

Hello again everyone, I was reading our Sunday readings this week and as I did I thought of all the lottery tickets I have bought with the hope that I would win a great deal of money so that I could live my life in security and freedom. My desire for security and freedom are, I think, basic human desires. There have been many (if not all) wars fought for just those reasons. In our readings today we are asked to look at what will truly fulfill those desires. Our writers today point out to us in plain terms that wealth does not supply us with security or freedom.
Hello to all, This week our readings are talking about prayer. Our first reading from Genesis is like an introduction to the story most of us are familiar with, that of Sodom and Gomorrah. In the section they have chosen for our listening pleasure we hear Abraham negotiate with the Angel of the Lord (which, in the bible, is always a metaphor for an encounter with the living God). He has a selfish motive in these negotiations. He is trying to save his brother-in-law Lot. He gets permission to go and get him and his family after the negotiations are complete.
