Imperfect Trust

Redirect us – from perfecting how to do things right, toward trusting you to guide us in imperfectly doing the right things.


Is My Work Enough?

It’s easy to get caught up in what you don’t have or can’t do, but every bit you can offer has the potential to make a difference beyond your greatest imagination.


A Taxing Question

Tomorrow many will celebrate independence from empire. Let’s also remember that America has since become an empire. How might Jesus call us to respond?


Outlaw

Whatever makes us belong to one another, whatever binds us so tightly that one of us can’t be hurt without all of us crying out, that is the only law that matters.


Rock-Solid Identity

How does your identity – claimed or not – shape your worldview? How does your identity reflect what is important to you? To what, or whom, do you pledge allegiance?


You Can’t Carry Two Watermelons with One Hand

Sometimes we load too much onto our plates. We carry too many things at once. And then one of them drops. Or they all do. Or we drop ourselves, in exhaustion.


Lying Awake and Sitting Still

God, help me listen, love, listen, learn. Let myself be available. Let myself stay awake because there is a lot of Gethsemane out there, and let me listen.


Covid Conversations

My emotions have been all over the place these days. I’m happy one minute, frustrated and short-tempered the next. Fear and hope seem to take turns leading my emotions.


A Little Yeast

I am like my loaves of bread. The things I incorporate, the spiritual influences and personal contacts and media sources, have the power to leaven me, to transform me.


Not Going Back

We don’t need to go back. We need to go forward. Forward to justice, forward to green, and forward to sanity.
