About Me

I am a pastor and a clinical psychotherapist. My life's passion is defining healthiness from a human perspective and paralleling it to the holiness of God, divine perspective. Shifting perspectives creates a paradigm that is alongside of rather than over and against. The parakalein of God and the paradoxes of humanity are redefined. Humanity is all about winning and yet we are losing ground everywhere. Divinity is all about letting go of the desire to win and the fear of loss. The Divine embraces the world with loving care regardless of anything.

Palm Sunday from the drivers seat

Posted by Don Paine

It has been a while since I posted.

We all get dry times.  As the snow was falling in the spring air I thought how mother nature and father time sometimes are not in step.  But whatever is seems to fall in place in time.

These are the times of spiritual renewal when we think of Jesus walking purposefully and courageously into Jerusalem knowing what he was to face in the week to come.  The compassion and courage that drove his life as he rode into Jerusalem on a donkey regardless of what was happening around him.  He was in the drivers seat.

The message is clear:  humility is the "glory laud and honor" of Palm Sunday and true spirituality.

The God of time and nature is "at" our side inviting us to live as he lived.
