    While typing the words “sisters and brothers” I was struck by how ridiculous that address seems.  Sure, we can call each other neighbor or friend.  It is conceivable that we might address one another as co-worker or acquaintance.

    Going for a walk the other day the distinctive smell of those blossoms took me to another place and time. When the lilac bushes began to display their light purple flowers in the school yard of District 148, Sheldon School, the students knew school was soon to be out in the bygone years of country schools.

    “What is truth?” Easter is over but the question posed by Pilate in the Biblical account of Jesus’ crucifixion stubbornly refuses to go away. It peeks over our shoulder when we read the news. It whispers in our ear while we’re listening to our young children explain how the vase ended up broken on the floor. And it patiently waits outside the door of the church while we enter for worship on Sunday morning.

    There is a saying that is heard in a lot of churches and Christian gatherings.  “God is good, all the time. All the time God is good.”  Is that true? There is a verse to a song that says “God is so good, God is so good. God is so good, He’s so good to me.” Sometimes we sing it as a meditation thought or a prelude to prayer time. Is God really so good?
