  Be Your Creator's Creation - A Reflection by Tammy Winn

O Intricate Creator, gently open my eyes so that I can see how to bless the world by honoring your design of me. Amen.

When taking part in something larger than myself, I often find it exhilarating to recognize how each individual contributes a talent that collectively becomes far greater than what one could offer alone. A personal example that comes to mind is the process of recording an album. In that effort there are many roles, such as songwriter, arranger, singers, musicians, engineer, producer, photographer, artist, graphic artist, duplicator, distributor, and so forth. From the initial spark that inspires a tune to the physical or digital end product there are many people involved. How fun it is to witness and take part in such a synthesis!

  You Know the Way - A Reflection Song by Tammy Winn 

O God of Eternal Presence, help me to trust that you have given me what I need. Amen. 

“You Know the Way” is a call and response between one being and the great “I Am.” This song invites us to recognize Divine Presence both within us and all around us, in countless ways. It is a celebration that we have been given what we need for the journey. 
May you be inspired!   

Find a quiet place to sit and allow yourself five minutes to listen to this reflection.

Create a Space for Stillness and Reflection in Your Home This Spring 

Spring is a joyful time centered around rebirth and growth. The arrival of spring brings forth awakening as the Earth is coming alive again.’  

During this period of spring, your spirit is waking up with new ideas and new dreams. With this intention we invite you to create a dedicated space in your home or outside for quiet prayer, contemplation, and reflection on the warm energy of spring. This area can be as simple as a comfortable chair with a small table, perhaps near a window to gaze on nature. Spring has the power to make you feel alive and inspired.

Spiritual Direction

Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. Spiritual direction is a process of deep listening with a spiritual companion as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.

Daisy Time

by Marjorie Pickthall


See, the grass is full of stars,

Fallen in their brightness;

Hearts they have of shining gold,

Rays of shining whiteness.


Buttercups have honeyed hearts,

Bees they love the clover,

But I love the daisies' dance

All the meadow over.


Blow, O blow, you happy winds,

Singing summer's praises,

Up the field and down the field

A-dancing with the daisies.
