Noticed

When I don't fit in with the crowd, or I can't see my way clear, I try to get a better view of Jesus. If Jesus noticed Zacchaeus, surely he notices me, too. 


Remembering to Praise

If this is the last day before tomorrow, what else should I be doing but praising God? 


Gates

Where is the gate of righteousness at our southern border? Who will offer God's protection? How far are the righteous willing to go to care for children? May God help us with answers.


Seed Investments

We invest in the gospel by faith, not knowing what or when or if the investment will pay off. Lord of the harvest, free us from the need to see the results of our service and our love.


With All Your Mind

Who taught you to love God with all your mind?


Lazy Sundays are the Worst

What does it mean to be saved from aimlessness?


Confusing Christ

"I would go to church, but I don't like Jesus all that much. He's confusing." I wonder if Jesus would be less confusing, and the church more attractive, if his followers were more committed.


They Will Know Me by My Love

God's checklist and my internalized checklist of shame are incompatible. I don't have to fit into rigid boxes to be part of the beloved community.


Sovereign Submission

Each sovereign nation must submit itself to the sovereignty of global peace and international justice. It is the only recognition that can save the planet and the people on it.


Threat

When Christ says, "I'll come in and eat with you," it sounds like a tender pledge. But it's more like a threat: a threat of barrier-breaking intimacy, a threat to disrupt every caste.
