I decided to plant in several containers, plant in a straw bale, and start some veggies in a cold frame. Not only that but I decided to…Continue

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their multitude. And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation.
Levititucs 25: ... but in the seventh year there shall be a sabboth of complete rest for the land..
Today the liturgy is about "rest". Of…Continue

Was on a retreat last week at Victory Noll in Huntington. It was a very refreshing one, helped me to gain some relaxation and strength.

The program runs for six Wednesdays, 6:15 to 8:15 p.m., beginning April 11.

"...but you shall be called "My delight,"and your land "Espoused" Isaiah 61:10-62:5
I have never thought of land being espoused? Espoused basically mean to some extent "promised" equivalent to "betrothed"
Married to your land? How often do I think of creation in these terms? Do I really see the land as something special to me, desirable?, And what is my part in it? Am I a good partner to the land?
How often that age old "I am the center of the universe" comes to play.…Continue

If you are not registered to vote, or know anyone who is not, here is an easy to use online registration form. I know it is often tough in Indiana to find a candidate who has any chance of winning who supports the environmental movement at all, but we MUST NOT give up and WE MUST try. Often it comes down to choices of lesser evils, and while voting is great, campaigning for or against candidates is helpful also. Getting out the vote for Environmental Progressives is also incredibly…Continue

Cleansing is such a powerful experience. Not only does it open circulation throughout the body and increase blood flow to the brain, it increases the mood tenfold. Even if you can only commit to a seven day cleanse, the experience itself will bring you back to do it again and again. Cleansing incorporates herbal supplements, clean alkalizing foods, juicing and exercise. Sunshine and Herbs makes cleaning a lifestyle.
I created Sunshine and Herbs with idea of a healthy lifestyle that…

Making a commitment to do something can be tricky, on one hand you know that commitment is what’s right on the other hand, giving up something that feels good at the moment is very difficult. But when it comes to doing a liver cleanse, giving up that piece of cake or that beer, is going to do your health a world of good.
When making a commitment to do a liver cleanse, you must commit to no less than thirty days. This is very important because the liver rejuvenates and repairs itself on…

Cleansing the body doesn’t mean starving and only drinking water. It’s somewhat of a slow process of changing habits while using herbal remedies that will improve the functions of the internal organs and intestinal track. Think of it more like a lifestyle change than a body cleanse. I like to use the timeframe of thirty days to focus on several different forms of cleansing. After all, we don’t muck up our body in only two weeks, so cleansing should be a long term process as well.
