My beloved sermonating spot at a local coffee shop, which never fails to be a place of peace and inspiration. I write my sermons on Thursday afternoons and there’s something so wonderful about that space to myself to think, read and write. And to gaze out the window at that beautiful tree.An Irish blessing from my mom: May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world, with joy that long endures. May all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours.
