Doctor Who Celebrating Hope

Posted on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 in Relational, Reviews, Spiritual, Values

dayIf I see a movie in a theater, I almost never pay full price. Last night was different. Last night was special. We saw the Day of the Doctor.

I started watching the BBC program Doctor Who during the 1970s. I sat with a couple of friends more than thirty years ago watching my first Doctor Who episodes.

Last night I sat with those same old friends watching another “old friend.”

The Doctor traveled in his TARDIS. He used his favorite tool the Sonic Screwdriver. He faced his adversaries the Daleks and their fearsome threat, “Ex-ter-min-ate.” And as the audience expected, The Doctor saved the day with morality, wisdom and cleverness.

Mondays with My Old Pastor by José Navajo

Posted on Wednesday, December 26, 2012 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Reviews, Spiritual, Values

“Sometimes, all we need is a reminder from someone who has walked before us.”

José Navajo was a young burned-out preacher. While spending Mondays with his old retired pastor Jose found his faith reignited.

This began a weekly spiritual direction and mentoring relationship that last for years.

When the old pastor had passed away he left a treasure chest of wisdom behind  for José.  

“When you read this I will no longer be here. I mean, I will not be at your side, although the reality is that I will be there in the fullest sense of the word: I will have finished my race, and I will be enjoying the long-awaited reward of gazing at my Lord face-to-face.”

Become A Helpful Mentor

Posted on Friday, November 30, 2012 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

As I was approaching fifty years old I sought the wisdom of my elders. I sought out men and women older than I was to learn lessons on life that they had been learning.

Last Monday I began a series entitled A Treasure Chest Of Wisdom, including:

1. Don’t Hold Grudges
2. Take Care Of Your Health.
3. Compassion Makes Sense and Giving Is Better Than Taking
4. Greed Gains Momentum

5. Gratitude Leads To Contentment
6. Contentment Leads To Generosity
7. Everyone Splashes. Splash Blessings.
8. Find A Mentor
9. Why Become A Mentor?
