Joke
Why do chickens lay eggs?
Because if they drop them, they will break.
                                                                               
Inspiration
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is a daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. ~Mahatma Gandhi





 

Video - Ginny's Gems
Rev Dr Ginny Brown Daniel, Conference Minister shares that as she traveled to Germany and Poland with her husband, she had time to sit with the concept of privilege. We, in the United Church of Christ, have been talking a lot about privilege, and she shares that she often has been uncomfortable in identifying the places where she experiences privilege.
