Think On These Things by Ed Dunn

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Philippians 4:8). When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change – German Theoretical Physicist, Max Planck (1858-1947). There is an unmistakable importance to mindfulness, or presence, to use a different word. The thoughts we hold closely within our hearts and minds do indeed matter. The terms, Mindfulness and Presence, are ones we may hear quite ...

“Break It Up” by Ed Dunn

We received a distressing email from our Mom the other day. Both the tone and the content of her words were uncharacteristic, and alarmed my brothers and sisters and me to a point of picking up the phone. Over a series of calls at different times, we needed to make sure she was okay. Our Mom’s message expressed a deep concern for everything that’s been happening in our nation today - the political divides, the racial divides, the economic divides, and the fact that no one seems to be listening to anyone, anymore. She lamented how far we’ve come, so fast, and that, not in a positive direction. She then went on to worry about the world her ...

Get Comfortable with the Questions by Ed Dunn

Once a year, usually around the Fourth of July holiday or the long Thanksgiving Day weekend, we’d all pile into our old family station-wagon and head out from our home in western Pennsylvania for the woods of central Connecticut. We were off and traveling to see our Grammy and Grampy Reeves, grandparents on my mother’s side of the family. It was hard to contain the excitement of five eager children. Our visits were a cherished treat, and both the trip and the time together were treasures we truly looked forward to. Grammy and Grampy Reeves split most years living in two places; the school years in New York City and the summers in upstate ...

Can We Talk? by Ed Dunn

Life “sheltering in place” these days has had its share of challenges for all of us.  For more than eleven weeks now, I’ve shared my home, again, with my twenty-year-old daughter, Lauren.  I say “again” because, as a “Third-Year” at a California university, Lauren has been home from school and back with me taking classes online due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Let’s just say we’ve had plenty of time and opportunity to talk. As a father and daughter, we have talked about the recent events we as a nation, and the world, really, have experienced together on the critical topics of race relations, ...

A Marathon, Not a Sprint by Ed Dunn

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) – “…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint…” Chariots of Fire I remember this verse well from my youth.  The year was 1981 and the hit movie, Chariots of Fire, had just been released to widespread appeal and critical acclaim.  In one of the most memorable scenes within the movie for me, the Scottish sprinter, Olympian and missionary, Eric Liddell, stood in the midst of a cold rain surrounded by soaked yet eager on-listeners.  As the wind blew, he recounted these poetic words ...
