Lent, Mortality, and Hope

Author: Sandra M. Levy, Ph.D., M.Div.
Well we have now entered the season called Lent in the Christian community–40 days of serious reflection about our flaws, our failings, our lives and where they are headed, what purposes drive us and to what end? Time to take stock, time to listen and to really examine our life story to this point and see if it could stand a bit of re-writing in the time that we have left.

Riders on the Storm

Author: Sandra M. Levy, Ph.D., M.Div.
That title of a famous song by The Doors might be little strong in terms of the blizzard of 2016 that many of us experienced this past week –  all up and down the east coast, from North Carolina through Virginia – but still, the weather was indeed cataclysmic for many and some died as a result of being caught up in it.

Christmas as Protest

Author: Sandra M. Levy, Ph.D., M.Div.
To celebrate Christmas now as well as at the time of Christ’s birth is an act of protest. Every Christmas tree raised, every creche set up, every candle lit on the Advent wreath is an act of protest, a sign of faith against despair – a candle lit that shines forth in the dark of our world.
