Creature Comforts; Rev. Dee Ledger, October 14, 2018

What are your personal creature comforts?  What are those things that you would miss so much that your brain would start crying out without them, things that can soothe your soul like no other, things that are #1 on your list of must-haves?  I know that warm showers, pressed laundry, and freshly ground coffee are… [Read More]

And We Shall Be Taught By God, Rev. Dee Ledger; October 7, 2018

  Does your stomach growl? Likely you’ve had the experience of being in a meeting or somewhere important, and your stomach starts to rattle and make its presence known.  A couple of crackers should do the trick, you think, except you’ve forgotten to pack a snack and there are no crackers to be found.  The… [Read More]

Wordsmith; Rev. Dee Ledger, September 16, 2018

Once a small town was visited by a saint. And as she passed by a small hut, a man came to her and begged her to pray and care for his critically injured boy.  Since the woman was new to the town, a crowd quickly gathered to see if the saint could do anything for… [Read More]

Breathing Room; Rev. Dee Ledger, September 9, 2018

Some of you know that my family recently placed a “Little Free Library” outside our home.  Weekly, I check on the books and tidy up, as needed.  Monthly, I try to rotate the books, clearing out old titles and inserting new ones.  This past weekend, I found a book in there that was basically a… [Read More]

Infinite Illusions; Rev. Dee Ledger, September 2, 2018

What makes you weep? For some of us, the beauty of a moment, a needed embrace, or the love of a child can make us weep.  For some of us, hard experience can make us weep.  We know what it is like to fall flat on our face and have to pull ourselves up, aching… [Read More]

Dwelling Place; Rev. Dee Ledger, August 26, 2018

Having grown up as the daughter of a postmaster, I have been always intrigued by the mail.  I grew up reading stories about the Pony Express, about kings and queens placing their seal on royal documents and sending them by courier, and about letters sent home during wartime.  In seminary, I learned about the power… [Read More]

It’s About Time; Rev. Dee Ledger, August 19, 2018

My boys are learning about time.  What the big hand means.  What the little hand means.  How to read the digital display on the stove and in the car.  How many minutes make an hour, how many hours to a day, and so forth.  Yesterday, a Saturday morning, mind you, my already-dressed son pounced on… [Read More]

Soul Matters; Rev. Dee Ledger, August 12, 2018

Friends, is it well with your soul?  How is it going with your soul?  I know that this may seem an unusual question.  Perhaps not so unusual for a minister to ask his or her congregation, but certainly it is not common parlance between casual or even intimate friends.  But since so many of our… [Read More]
