Me, Myself, and I

The Antichrist is not some mythic being. It’s the fist-pumping conviction that nothing is as sacred or heroic or as worth defending as me, myself, and I.


More Than Enough Spirit

There is more than enough Spirit to go around. Because a people empowered can always do more together than the most gifted leader. We can’t do it all on our own.


How Small the Regard of the Lord?

Does God see and care for the fates of smaller lives as well? Field mice? Worms? Fleas? Does God’s regard extend all the way down to ... viruses?


No Justice, No Peace

We may try to limit the Prince of Peace to our conceptions of law and order … but God knows that where there is no justice, there will be no peace.


One Bite

With all due respect to Ecclesiastes, which sees every sensory pleasure as a fleeting vanity, denying oneself can also be vanity.


All Together Now

Zoom church, for all its creativity and flexibility and fun, leaves something to be desired. The ineffable energy exchange of embodied worship happens in a hundred different ways.


I Will Not Leave You Orphaned

Thank you, Jesus, for not leaving any of us orphaned, and for the mothering love we can all share with each other.


What Am I to Do with My Anger?

I don’t need to hear the news for the day. I’m still furious about yesterday. I can’t believe this is happening. Anger spurs my resistance, but faith requires meekness, not fury.


Always Sophia

Perhaps like me, you too need an image reminding us that our waiting on God is not in vain – even as the entire world watches and waits for the end of daily terrors.


Time for Discernment

With so many competing claims, it’s often hard to tell who’s fake and who’s factual. To arrive at truth, we must be prepared to question and investigate what our leaders tell us.
