Purple is a color that evokes a lot of emotions and memories for me. The purple of the sky before a full on storm, and mountain flowers…it is also a color that was considered edgy back in my day. Purple is a rich and beautiful color, one of my favorites. Purple is also the color of the episcopate, an important part of the structure of the Episcopal church. And gumballs remind me to think of the unexpected joy we find in our daily lives. Also they are sweet and sticky.
The goal of this site is to chronicle my spiritual journey. Not always a straight path, there will be side roads and detours. I hope you enjoy laughing with my struggles, crying with my sorrows, and walking the path with me. We are all ministers to the world. It is my hope that you will find words to inspire, words to understand, and words to heal a broken world.
And, drop us a line, tell us what you like and what you don’t. No harm, no foul. My goal is only to feed hungry souls, including my own!
