Touching the Word, Rev. Kent Matthies

Do you remember when speed-reading was a new thing?  An early pioneer was Evelyn Wood in 1959.  In hindsight we see this was an early rendition in a society that would come to crave and demand fast everything: from food to internet service.  But speed reading is also an example of how going to fast often brings a cost of losing meaning.  In religion – note scripture and poetry – touching a word and staying with it can enliven hearts and transform lives.  Come celebrate Mother’s Day by touching a few words that matter.
