Unless You Become Like a Child

This summer, Omran Daqneesh became known simply as the Syrian Boy. Dazed, covered with dirt and blood, the five-year-old sat in an ambulance after an airstrike to his hometown of Aleppo. Omran gave the world a face to remember as people tried to come to terms with the horrific Syrian civil [...]

God of Wonders

What are the family stories that have shaped you?  Our stories are like the glasses through which we see the world. Mine are the tales of mission work in the Far East in the 1950s and 60s, or that of Postwar America with 5 kids around the dinner table, like [...]

Finding What You’re Not Looking For

The Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. (Matthew 13:44) Might I discover something profound in the messes? This is a question I often [...]

I Must Change

A Scottish village of about 8,500 residents has been in the world’s spotlight twice in the past 20 years.

Lenten Diagnostics

Twinkies with Friends

Equilibrium Theory of Faith

If you do what is best for yourself, the entire community will benefit. According to the 18th century English economist Adam Smith, that’s one of the pillars of a healthy capitalist economy. Smith’s magnum opus, The Wealth of Nations, was published in 1776 – the same year that the American colonies [...]

The Weary World Rejoices

I love the Christmas time of year, but… but… Does anyone else know this feeling? All of the eagerness, the anticipation, the family traditions, the good food, the ornately wrapped gifts, and of course most importantly the reason for the season, but… Does anyone else know that “but?” It may [...]
