The Bodies and the Body

We are suddenly and critically aware that our body is deeply connected to, and responsible for, the One Great Body.


Ultimate

Bowing towards each other is possible when we have a third power, a third way, a deeper understanding of what we are doing here on earth in the first place.


Nobody Likes a Grumpy Giver

Gifts aren’t given to decisions; they are given to the place you have decided God is at work. If your gift makes you grumpy – are you in the right place? 


Disrupted

The God who leads us beside still waters is also the God of our most disturbing provocations.


The Place Where You Are Standing

The story doesn’t start at the burning bush. It starts with a God-given impulse to go farther than we might tend to go, to open ourselves up to go where God might be.


Sacred Rage

Grief is one thing, people say; vengeance is another. I don’t understand the impulse of vengeance. But I can listen and try to learn. Not skip over it. Not judge it.


Still, Still, Still

Maybe you’ve been feeling tired. Heart low. Eyes downcast. Overwhelmed. Too discouraged to place much hope in goodness. Hush – be still in the solace of God’s lap.


Blank Check

It’s exemplary to help someone in dire straits, friend or foe. It’s divine to live a deeply obliged life, paying an open-ended debt to hope, for as long as it takes, to heal the world.


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.
