Now that we’re back to every-Sunday services of worship, I’m no longer making video versions of my meditations. I will, however, continue to post a meditation in print each week to this page - just tap on the PDF button! I have also started to send the print versions of these meditations out on a distribution list, usually by the following Tuesday or Wednesday. If you would like to be added to that list, so that you can receive these meditations automatically, just send me an email request!
