Who Cares for the Caregiver
We all have stress. It’s endemic in today’s world; from work, family, finances, health, and a myriad of other sources. A major source of stress for many of us is caregiving. Whether we are taking care of our children, an ill spouse, or our aging parents, caregiving takes its toll. Sherri Reed has dedicated her life to the pursuit of a caregiving mission given to her in the white light of a near death experience at the age of 17. Sherri was one of eighteen women featured in the book Unstoppable Woman, Stories of American Character.

An Awkward Blessing
Rev. Lora Brandis
“Who am I to offer a blessing? Who am I not to?” – David Spangler
I have been amazed at how often I have been asked to offer blessings – to bless marriages, children, meals, and at public events. Spontaneous requests have often surprised me the most, coming right after I’ve been introduced to someone as a minister. Those are the times I mumble awkwardly and hope that a real blessing comes through.
