Streets and Sidewalks

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

One of my very favorite Sunday feast days of the whole year is the Sunday that the church celebrates World Communion. This is a day that there is no us and them, no politics, no separation of denomination, race, privilege or economic status. It is a day that we, as the global church, come...

Dream

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

Do you like to dream? I do. I love to think, hope, and dream about what might be. I dream about my son, Beckham, and the person he might become. I dream about what next vacation spot I hope to go to. I even dream about my retirement. I also dream about Wesleyan Heights!   I must admit I...

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

A few years ago, I watched this video when a friend posted it on social media. This video from disability day at Fenway Park is moving in a lot of ways. However, the most powerful moment is not centered on the singer, it was when the entire crowd overpoweringly joins in the anthem. Everyone was...

Wander With Me

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

This month is the beginning of Lent. This is a time when we all are invited into a journey with God to discover ourselves and our relationships with God. We are also given the opportunity during this season to wander. You know, humans are built to wander. History is crisscrossed by their...

Much to Come

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

         People the world over anticipate and celebrate the coming of a new year. In the United States, we have the ball drop in Times Square, the peach drop in downtown Atlanta, and champagne toasts in every town and village. In Spain, they eat twelve...

Advent Conspiracy

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

Several years ago, a few pastors were lamenting how they’d come to the end of an Advent season exhausted and sensing they’d missed it again: the awe-inducing, soul-satisfying mystery of the incarnation. No wonder there was a dread at the beginning of each new season as they prepared...

Sow Generously

Posted by Kaury Edwards on

Christians who want to please the Lord often have questions about tithing. The dictionary defines the word “tithe” as “a tenth part of something paid as a voluntary contribution or as a tax especially for the support of a religious establishment.” It was a common practice...
