Spiritual Reflection and Growth
“The one duty we owe history is to rewrite it.” This quote by author Oscar Wilde struck me at the end of Timothy Egan’s book A Fever in the Heartland. Yet the reality is that we can’t rewrite a history we don’t know.
This past Sunday I walked into the Fellowship Hall after worship to find a space filled with people, lots of good food, and so much wonderful conversation and laughing.
I have always found Francis of Assisi an inspiring and interesting man of history and faith.
I’m encouraging you to become a lifelong learner. Whether that’s going to hear some speakers, a lecture, or reading, it’s essential to keep learning.

That’s a wrap! On the 31st day of August, we held our final day of catch party with Rowdie the mascot from the Indianapolis Indians. It was so much fun to gather people from the church and community for a fun event.
“Do you boys have your gloves?” I asked as we drove down the road. Nope, they’re at home. I turned around to pick up their gloves before heading to the park for my final day of 30 days of catch.
As I’m heading toward home base, a battery died. It wasn’t mine; it was my catch partner’s car battery.
I should have borrowed Randy’s catcher’s glove from yesterday! Today I played with Senior softball player from Lawrence North High School, Ella Hogan.
