It Is All About The First Stone

April 3, 2022

There has always been something about that first stone.  It seems throughout history there is something about the first throw, the first shot, the first punch.  In baseball, there is sometimes a ceremony about the first pitch.  After that pitch, the game begins.  In Lexington and Concord, they speak of the shot heard around the world that […]

March 27, 2022

Whenever we find ourselves running, we must ask a question, are we running towards something, or away from something?  In the Gospel, we hear a story we can all tell by heart.  The prodigal son resonates deeply with many.  It is a parable that invites us to be drawn in by two sons, by jealousy, by conversion, […]
