Closer to Jesus

What draws you closer to Jesus? And what draws you farther away? These were the key questions raised at our latest Bible study. And they are questions I’m still pondering today. Some things—many things, I suspect—are neither good nor bad. They are neutral. And yet, the way that we approach [...]

Finding God in the Ordinary

How have you experienced God today? Some days, it’s hard to find His presence. Not because He isn’t there, but because my focus is on other things, like the tasks that need to be accomplished each day. I become too busy, rushing from one thing to the next. But as [...]

What Do You Expect?

“Are you ready to hear what God might have to say to you today?” It’s one of the questions the kids hear every week as they enter the Godly Play classroom, and frankly, it’s not always one that I can say “yes” to. Am I ready to hear what God [...]

Dear Mary

Where were you, Mary, when you found out your Son had been taken by the soldiers to stand trial? Did you find out as soon as the disciples ran out of the Garden? Did one of them come wake you up to let you know? Or were they too frightened [...]

Jesus, Have Mercy

How Far Will I Go?

PRAY: Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. (Psalm 119:18, NLT) READ IT: One day some Pharisees and teachers of religious law arrived from Jerusalem to see Jesus. (Mark 7:1, NLT) They came to Jesus. They sought Him out. Why? What was their motivation? What did they want with [...]

Into Their World

It happened as I was waiting in line at a local restaurant. What was slated to be a boring and somewhat tedious wait to order soon became an adventure of friendship and laughter as a 1-year-old girl walked up to me and raised her hands to be held. It took [...]

Vehicles of Grace

“For a long time, I thought my children were a distraction from the work God was doing in my life and in the world around me. I am starting to realize they ARE the work God is doing in my life. They are the invitation to give, to receive, to [...]

What Do You Practice?

With the fall has come a change in the routine. My daughter and I are both adjusting back to the school schedule and figuring out what we are going to commit ourselves to this season. The thing is, change is challenging. Even when it’s good. Our routines, our practices, shape [...]
