Mike’s Rumblings 04-19-24

This is an audio version of Mike Murphy‘s Friday rumblings. This is a regular post on Facebook that I’ve turned into a podcast. I decided Mike’s words needed a wider audience. You may agree or disagree with what he says, but there is certainly much food for thought contained here. You can friend Mike on Facebook for the printed version or read it below

Rumblings. 4.19.24

1. Listening to ‘Pray as You Go’  recently, I was touched by The Kyiv Chamber Choir singing  the Creed: “I believe in one God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.”

In the midst of growing uncertainty in Ukraine about its future as a country, voices there are still being raised in song to proclaim belief and allegiance to their God. 

It was, therefore, quite humbling to join them in their profession of faith knowing full well the …Read More

Rumblings. 4.5.2

1. “All four gospels witness to Mary Magdalene as the premiere witness to the resurrection – alone or in a group, but in all cases named by name. . . All four gospels insist that when the other disciples are fleeing, Mary Magdalene stands firm. She does not run, she does not betray or lie about her commitment, she witnesses. But why, one wonders, do the Holy Week liturgies tell and retell Peter’s threefold denial of Jesus, while the steady, unwavering witness …Read More

Rumblings. 3.29.24

1. Find a Good Friday service that will allow you to linger with all the stories of Holy Week, to feel the sting of betrayal, the deep emotion of the Cross, and the fear of the disciples.

Find a service that allows you to put yourself into the narrative and urges you to stay expectant. 

Do that and Easter Sunday will…Read More

Rumblings. 3.22.24

1. “As my spiritual director and I transitioned into a new kind of relationship I was still thinking that the answers would come primarily through verbal exchange. I was hoping for advice and a quick fix—in 3 easy steps if possible! Now, I thought, rather than doing psychological talking we would do spiritual talking. And we did do some talking but eventually this wise woman said to me, “Ruth you are like a jar of river water all shaken up. What you need…Read More
