Today’s find: Soup

Encountered a little hiccup on the path toward the savory pot of turkey soup I had envisioned.

When I pulled open the produce drawer, it was practically empty: No celery. No carrots. And only the lame remnants of a Vidalia sweet onion. (It had seen better days.)

Today’s find: SEG

There were lessons aplenty to be learned during Kairos #13 at Menard this past weekend.

Inside the prison…and out…as it happened.

Today’s find: Outsider

I’ve been listening to political promises long enough to know better. Still, this time of year tends to stir up in me a particular angst over one such promise in particular.

Today’s find: Father Fix-It

I guess I wasn’t overly surprised at the crowd that showed up for the “social justice” lecture series at Saint Louis University the other day. The speaker, Fr. Gregory Boyle S.J., is a bit of a rock star as Jesuits go – the author of a New York Times bestseller, Tattoos On The Heart.

Today’s find: Weedless – Quincentenary reflection

I offer a throwback post on this date, to mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his 95 theses…a reflection I wrote earlier this year after encountering a curious garden spot in northwestern Ohio.

Today’s find: Extra-ordinary

As I settled in to say my ‘regular’ morning prayer today, I realized that I hadn’t done so for the past several days.

Odd, but guiltless, this realization. You see, those days were spent at a retreat center…where I was serving on team for our parish’s fall ACTS Retreat.

I made a snap decision at the home improvement store recently, and boy, did it come back to bite me.

Today’s find: Creamy PB

It’s getting close now, the bottom of the jar. ‘Peter Pan Creamy’ peanut butter, to be precise. And I won’t mind polishing it off…getting that jar out of the pantry once and for all…so that I can return to my much-preferred variety of the bread spread: ‘Extra Crunchy.’
