Aging Grace – Stuart Segall

Now in my eyes, in all my experiences, there is nothing more wonderful on my journey of life than grace.  Most especially, “amazing grace.”  Much has been written just in my lifetime alone about the subject. However, today, my mind is on another grace.  A human grace.  A grace that is helped by a spiritually mature person for sure, but it should be found in any emotionally mature person.  I simply call it “aging grace”. Eventually, we are all headed into the winter of our lives and when we join the winter club, we ought to be seasoned with some aging grace.  I find aging grace is like ...

Now More Than Ever…Look Up! – Stuart Segall

When we raise our periscopes, we are reminded that the world churns and burns around us. We see that hatred continues to grow, and even the climate tells us other universal storms could be brewing.

Be a lamp – a lifeboat – or a ladder by Stuart Segall

“Be a lamp – a lifeboat – or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.” Who first expressed this?  No one knows for sure. They say “Rumi” did but that does not matter. What matters is that these words say so much!  Do these words speak to you? When I first read these words some time ago, it made me think about who perhaps in our life has been, or perhaps will be in such a role as this.  Do you think of someone who has been a lamp?  To be a lamp for another human is to be someone who brings light to the darkness, or one who helps light the way home.  He or she might ...
