Yes! You Drive (and Walk!) in the River

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Perhaps one of the most distinctive features of coming to a retreat at Laity Lodge (and Laity Lodge Youth Camps) is the fact that you drive in the river to get to the retreat. No, you don’t simply drive across the river. You drive up or down the river for anywhere from a quarter to […]

Another Chapter in the Sad Story of Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United Church of Christ

Driving in Texas

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

My first experiences of driving in Texas left me with the impression of an endless, flat countryside. When I was a child, my family and I drove through north Texas on a couple of occasions. It was hot, dusty, and boring. Then, when I was moving from New England back to California, I drove across […]

A Call to Truthfulness
READ Matthew 5:33-37
 ”Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Anything beyond this is from the evil one.”
Matthew 5:37
In the time of Jesus, people made vows to offer assurance that they would do as they had said. But they didn’t “swear to God” for fear that if they […]
