Winning And Losing In Politics

You win some and you lose some. That is how life goes. Accepting losses is a statement of character and gives one the driving force to try again. When it involves power and politics then it’s a whole new ball game where some who lose shouldn’t try again.

Those who lose in the game of politics should have some grace about them and realize that when it’s over, it’s over. The people have the say in winning and losing in this case. It’s OK to lose and if you do it well people will respect you for giving it your best.

Maybe some folks need to realize that it’s not about wheeling and dealing your way into winning because it doesn’t work like that. It’s time to move forward and to prepare for a new chapter in the lives of people who have suffered so much.

It’s time to let go of the past and embrace the new things to come on January 20, 2021.

Reasons For Watching Church Online #episcopal

As a church-going type person, I have sat through many digital worship services in these days of COVID19. Currently, my parish is meeting outdoors in-person to keep people connected yet safe. YouTube and Zoom have been instrumental in keeping many churches going and offering their parishioners the Word and Sacraments.

This graphic is a humorous take on watching church online. I do like the no parking, coffee, and relaxing in my pajamas but I would never ever mute my priest. He’s pretty good at sermonizing and that sort of thing.

No matter how you practice your faith I hope you have found a way to stay connected and to receive blessings from your spiritual community.
