Experiencing the Mystery

Not long ago, I was at a large gathering, and seated at my table was a couple in their 80s who had been married over 50 years. During our conversation, it came up that the husband, Roger, wanted to visit Greece before he died. “I never knew that about you!” [...]

A Routine That Works

Let’s talk about reading the Bible. If you’re like me, perhaps you pick and choose your favorite passages and ignore the other ones. (Is ignore too strong a word? Maybe we’d be more comfortable with overlook instead.) But I started noticing at the end of last year that I really [...]

It Was Meant for You

Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures . . . (1 Corinthians 15:3). In his book Letters to a Young Evangelical, Tony Campolo tells the story of being in a communion service with his parents when he was very young. Seated in the pew in front of them [...]

Feeling Inadequate

I just don’t know what to do sometimes. One of my dearest friends is dealing with some tough stuff right now. His world has been turned upside down. He is being confronted with some ugly truths – truths that must be addressed in order to move forward and find some [...]

Savor the Small Stuff

Kingdom Light Bearers

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1) In just a few weeks, one my favorite events will commence: the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. What officially begins these games every two years is the torch that makes its [...]

Don’t Have Room?

“Can you watch the kids for me tonight?” “Would you be able to meet for lunch tomorrow?” You’d love to say yes, but – you’re supposed to pick up your own kids, run to the grocery store, and get supper ready. Or you’ve got back-to-back meetings tomorrow and aren’t likely [...]

Be Mindful

What are you noticing these days? I’m sure you’re all feeling the nip in the air, the wind at your back, the crunch of leaves underfoot. Perhaps you’re watching the stoplights change color or your favorite show on TV. But really, what are you noticing? Do you see the wince [...]
