Good Friends

I mentioned earlier in the week a man named Andrew Favilla, whose wife, Laurel, is Pete Scazzero’s assistant and is also the current Director of the Center for Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Andrew works at Grand Central TERMINAL. I was reminded by Laurel at church this morning that the name is not to be confused with […]

No Place Like Home

Ahhh! The fresh smell of LAX and here I am in the Sepulveda Pass on the Flyaway bus to Van Nuys. Can hardly wait to see Colleen and the boys just on the other side of this mountain range. It’ll be so good to hit some place for dinner with them and hear of the […]

EHS Conference – Day 2

My feelings were confirmed today. A TWO day EHS Conference is definitely more impacting than ONE. Had a chance to chat more about this with Pete Scazzero today. Areas covered today were Contemplative Spirituality and 5 Skills for Growing Into an Emotionally Mature Adult. The way the conference was presented this time around gave me […]

EHS Conference – Day 1

It was helpful that today’s Conference didn’t start until noon. Gave us a chance to recover from yesterday’s activities. Should’ve thought to bring a pedometer along. I don’t know how many miles we walked throughout Manhattan, but it was at least a few. After a good night’s rest, I was excited to see what the […]

Reminded

I am being reminded this morning of the place that the expectations I live with in myself are too much for anyone to live with. It’s true for most of us. Who needs to be reminded? We ALL do!! Unless we are reminded, we just keep living the same way, and it tends to NOT […]

New York and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality … An Oxymoron?

We departed LAX and arrived in New York on time at both ends. We were picked up by Laurel Favilla, who serves as Pete Scazzero’s assistant. We’ve become good friends over the last couple years as we’ve worked together. It was great to reconnect with her and a real honor that she wanted to pick […]

SVPD Ministry

Most of our church is aware that I serve as a Chaplain with the Simi Valley Police Department. I don’t often mention it here, and thought I’d blog a bit about some of the calls I go out on. SVPD has 5 Chaplains. The longest serving one is legendary in our city. Frank Witman served […]
