This week I discuss my love for the calming effects of a jigsaw puzzle, what I think about when I walk up the stairs, and bible verses. After you listen, I ask you to send me your favorite bible verse in the comments section or through e-mail. I’d love to hear from you.
I hope you enjoy our walk this week. Please remember to leave a comment on the website, the podcast, or send me an email at email@example.com with your thoughts.

Gosh…you’ve done it again in #55. My favorite psalm AND the reference to Mt. Chochora…which was my 50th Mt. peak, climbed after months of rehab from a serious injury. I’ thought I’d not be able to climb again but did. At my 25th anniversary as a Brother, celebrated with a big gathering in Narragansett in 1990, the cover page on the program was of a man with a staff looking at the mountains thru an opening in the trees and the words “I lift up my eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help”. The same psalm was sung in Anglican Chant as a reflection during the ceremony.
As we recited the psalms as part of the Divine Office 5 times a day for 14 months in the novitiate I came to appreciate the psalms…their message and their repetative and calming effect. Today, I have about 9 CDs created by 9 different Cathedral choirs in England that contain all of the psalms in Anglican Chant…each with their own personal flavor. They are so soothing to listen to.
My Grandmother Flaxington who was at different times a Presbyterian, and Episcopalian and finally a Baptist, loved Psalm 23…”The Lord is my shepherd”. For her, I learned it in “BROAD SCOTS”: “THE LAIRD’S , MY HERD, I SALL NAE WANT. HE LOOTS ME TO LIE DOON ATOURE THE KNOWLES AN’ IN GREEN HOWES WHAUR BONNIE BURNIES CROON…”.
I am enjoying walking with you. Your messages have certainly touched me as has the time just listening to your voice again. Cheers!

Yes- the 121st Psalm! When I was a first semester seminary student my grandmother passed away and I was invited to share a reading at the service. I had no clue what I should read- the Bible is pretty big after all. Through divine intervention I ended up choosing the 121st Psalm. I thought it sounded right. The very next Old Testament class after the service, the professor (who didn’t know I was away at a funeral) mentioned that Psalm 121 was perfect for a funeral. I think you know–Rev. Boyle–what the very first passage was that I memorized…. Thank you for continuing to pastor in this very special way!
I listen, and pray. I do puzzles as I have cognitive memory loss. If I grew my hair longer I could sweep the floor. Lol. But time moves along, the grands are so old. We are not. We are the only ones dedicated to Christ and His Church. They say we spent too much toTime in church. Can that be so. Se you soon. Thank Dale for all she has done for you for us please.
