God Is Still Sleeping

If rest is so holy and if God has rested since the dawn of Creation, should I worry that God will sleep through my own storms and ignore my pleas for help?


No Good Christians

Christianity has little to do with being a good person. The essence of the Christian faith is this: God loves us not because we are good but because God is good.


Clothed with Power

We need God’s PPE right now. To be clothed with the power of God’s love that overcomes despair. And clothed with the power of God’s peace that calms our anxious spirits.


Exactly

What would the founders of your church say about the living waters God and your pastors are pouring through your screen each week despite the shuttered sanctuary?


The Power of Patience

There are so many times I want God to just hand over my problems and let me figure out a solution. So many of us share the kryptonite of the “just let me do it” spirit.


The Same Boat

Rather than claiming we’re in the same boat, the gospel tells me to find out about my neighbor’s boat. Seek to understand their experience of this storm.


At the Cross

We’re right always to insist on hope. But maybe not so reflexively, maybe not so fast. F Faith isn’t faith if it marches us straight to glory without passing despair.


It’s Going to Be Bad

Friends, it’s bad these days – for a lot of reasons. Many of us feel unprepared. Instability is on public display. Keep holding on to love. Remember that you’re not alone.


Wait…How Long?

The story of deliverance from global devastation is a story of counting days. It’s a story that reminds me I am not the first child of God to feel the way I am feeling.


The Longest Shortest Time

Time does weird things. It drags and flies, expands and contracts. And through it all, God is patient with us.
