The Council of Nicea, convened in AD 325, is undeniably one of the most significant events in Christian history. Often referred to as the first ecumenical council, it saw bishops from across the Roman Empire gather under the auspices of Emperor Constantine I. Their primary aim was to address and resolve theological disputes threatening the unity of the early Christian Church, but its outcomes have far-reaching implications even today. more
Acts 7:30-32  After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai. When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to get a closer look, he heard the Lord say: ‘I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.’ Moses trembled with fear and did not dare to look. more
Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 121:1-2 reads, “I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.” Have you ever seen this morning prayer that circulated a few years ago? “Dear Lord, so far today I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, haven’t lost my temper, haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent. But in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed and from then on, I’ll be needing your help. Amen.” May our prayer be, “Lord, help me today. No matter what I face, I can trust that you will be with me to be my refuge, strength, and help; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” May God bless your week!

I recently made a remark in a column about being a “rhubarb fan” and Melinda Ray picked up on it with an interesting introduction. She said her 90-year-old mom has been eating this since childhood, so it is an heirloom in her family. It sounds delicious! (Next on my dessert menu.) I love fruit dumplings! She prefers pink rhubarb. Thanks, Melinda. more

Hello fellow food lovers and welcome back to my kitchen. This week we’re going to take a crack at a grilled chicken burrito that will knock your socks off. I don’t know about you, but I often like to experiment in the kitchen. Sometimes I have a goal in mind, and sometimes I just wing it and see what happens. Saturday evening I was watching a movie, and thinking about dinner. I was definitely in the mood to cook but what? Tacos. That thought was immediately followed by “what kind of interesting new taco can I make?” After several minutes of thought, the answer I arrived at was…burritos! The result of my “playing” ended with an easy meal that is sure to please. more

Well foodies, we made it to September. I like to use this month to get my pantry in order, discard any old spices, then add them to the list to be replaced, and best of all, I'm ready for some comfort foods. September is the pre-fall season, a time to get the kitchen stocked for holiday baking and home cooking. Time for hearty dishes, meals made at home, and double batch cooking, one for the freezer when nights are busy. Autumn is all about comfort so I decided to bring back an old favorite that is classic comfort. I chose this recipe because you can use garden produce and pantry pasta. Goulash was a staple in my home growing up, and again in my adult home when serving pasta for our large family helped make ends meet. But, pasta can be boring. This national dish of Hungary has been around for centuries with other countries claiming their own versions. This goulash recipe is a bit spicy to warm you up fast but the flavors blend well making it tasty for any season. You can't go wrong with a good bowl of goulash any way you make it, and this one is perfect for the slow cooker. Comfort season here we come.  more
