Looking on with Fascination

Looking on with Fascination

When my son Timothy was about two years old, he loved to look for anthills on summer walks. We often would find some supersized ones when we strolled in a nearby river valley park. Tim would delight in stirring up their mound with a freshly plucked branch so that he...

What’s your story?

What’s your story?

I have had an increase in time with my family over the past months.  We are currently isolated to our home from morning until night.  We go to sleep and wake only to know the schedule and repetition of the days before will be similar to the day before and the day...

Lament

Lament

I came home from classes on March 17th to the reality that we were officially moving into isolation – church, ministry, relationships were moving online.  Moving away.  (That’s what I internalized).  In those first days I remember thinking, the Israelites might have...

Favorite Passages

Favorite Passages

One of my “all-time favorite passages” in the Bible is found in Philippians one. Here Paul is writing to some of his friends who are believers that he longs to return to. His warm memories of their time together, and his gratefulness for their recent financial gift...

Prayer – April 16, 2020

Prayer is the Mother of all transformation.  "Necessity is the mother of invention" is an English-language proverb. It means, roughly, that when the need for something becomes imperative, you are forced to find ways of getting or achieving it. In our current...

Temptation – Lent, Day 38 of 40

Temptation – Lent, Day 38 of 40

Up until now, we’ve been talking about how Lent helps us connect to the story of God and his people. Lent helps us identify with God’s work through history. Lent also reminds us that Jesus identifies with us.  Right after Jesus’ baptism the Spirit led...

Jonah – Lent, Day 32 of 40

Jonah – Lent, Day 32 of 40

When I was younger, I enjoyed getting my brother and sisters in trouble. I’m sure none of you can relate to that! I was pretty good at it, too. I knew what buttons to push to get them to react.   As an adult, I don’t try to get people in trouble anymore but...

Elijah- Lent, Day 25 of 40

Elijah- Lent, Day 25 of 40

Through the 40 days of Lent we’ve been connecting to God’s story by looking at where 40 days shows up in Scripture. Forty days shows up in God’s story again just after God demonstrated his supremacy over Baal by sending fire from heaven to...

The Spies – Lent, Day 19 of 40

The Spies – Lent, Day 19 of 40

I forgot it was Lent! In the midst of all the news about COVID-19 and the meetings to plan how we’re going to respond, Lent got lost. I got distracted and overwhelmed.  So I can relate to the children of Israel in Numbers 13-14. They’re...
