    Hoppers are coming to church

    As part of their Southern Gospel Music Series at Mount Olive Baptist Church in Bolivia, The Hoppers from Madison will be appearing in concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 20.

    The Hoppers, one of Gospel music’s most acclaimed and awarded family recording artists, have just completed an all-new studio recording, “Something’s Happening” (Spring Hill Music). The new release, produced and arranged by composer and producer Lari Goss, has been in the works for nearly two years.

  • The women of the world pose a serious question: How many loaves have you?

    I can still smell the yeasty, sweet, enticing aroma of baking bread as the bus ride took us past the Wonder Bread Bakery in East Hartford, Conn. Probably a mile or two before we spotted the factory, the odors bathed us, encasing us in a comforting fragrance. It was far more than the scent of an irretrievable past. It was a reminder that simple things are not to be trashed.

  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase

    The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us that the whole staircase of faith is elusive but essential to our living faithfully. I have experienced that reality. I am continuing to experience it as I enter and re-enter the emergency department of Brunswick Community Hospital. Each time Hubby Dear gently transports me to the place where faith tells us healing happens, I delve more deeply into the mystery of redemptive suffering.

  • Riding the roller coaster of life is exhilarating, exhausting and exasperating

  • Risk everything for a dream that no one sees but you

    A line from the movie “Million Dollar Baby” made such an impression on me I wrote it down for further contemplation and possible use. It was then put away safely and forgotten. Forgotten, that is, until I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago.
