What the Story Is About

I’ve believed that I deserve life’s storms. I’ve believed it serves me right. And I’ve known the feeling of relief when adversity subsides, when the end allows me to begin again.


Hide and Seek

Notice to notice. Remember to remember. Pray to pay attention and to appreciate—knowing that such a prayer is already and regularly granted.


But Which Tune?

Music helps words soar above the everyday. Words help music sink deeply into our spirits. And there is no one version of the music and words that can be defined as “traditional.”


The Earth

Many of us are understandably panicked about climate chaos. The earth has been torn asunder, violently shaken, utterly broken. But God can fix what is broken, with enough time.


Big-Big!

God is not just big, but big-big! Big-big enough to not be swayed by privilege. Big-big enough to fairly treat parentless children. Big-big enough for all to have what they need.


Fire and Brimstone

I don’t know if God is still good. I suspect God’s righteousness is tarnished. But we’re called to keep searching for goodness—and for one another—through the fire and brimstone.


We’ve Come This Far

Take a moment today to give thanks for your heroes in faith. Take another moment to recall the twists and turns in your own journey, and how grace keeps pulling you forward.


The Story I Tell

When I tell a story of fear, I find plenty to be afraid of. When I focus on scarcity, there is not enough. But when I remember the story of love, I notice it’s unmistakably true.


Stop Scaring Bears

God’s 'peaceable kingdom' between humans and animals is not for our entertainment. These days, the peaceable kingdom often needs us to leave the animals alone to live in peace.


Silent God

'Silence is golden,' but following God isn’t about silencing. It’s about listening. It’s about considering Something More Important. It’s about honoring the roar of God’s voice.
