Dear Folks -

I want to wish you and your a Sacred Holy Season. In a world that is full of things and people to be fearful of may this be a time when we hear the message of the season: “Fear not!"

These e-mail messages go out to people spread out all over the world. I hear from folks who receive them in India, New Zealand, Switzerland, France, England, Scotland as well as the United States. Please be aware how grateful I am to each and every one of you whether you are able to be present at the Ordinary Life Gatherings in person or only electronically. Were it not for you and your attentiveness, Ordinary Life would not exist.

If you are in the Houston area, there is no finer theater or worship experience anywhere than one of the Christmas Eve services at St. Paul’s. Here is a link you can use to get more information.

This week in Ordinary Life I offered my reflection on another teaching from The Gospel of Thomas. The message is hopeful. If we do our own work of growing in emotional and spiritual intelligence, we contribute to the transformation of the world.

So, peace, hope, love and joy to you.

Below you will find a link to text I used this week.  As is often the case, the audio is somewhat different. You can also find links to the presentation slides and the audio. There is also a link to the slides that are shown as people gather. That collection contains all the Christmas cartoons. Enjoy

Be well!

Much love,

Bill Kerley
