Hateful Christians and Certain Love

God, let me be uncertain about my own righteousness, and certain of your unconditional love for both me and my enemies.


Thanks for Forgetting

We know that sin is not determined by age. I’ve found that sin is the immaturity of being closed to any value that does not serve self-aggrandizement.


Reliable Sources

Jesus asked the religious leaders whether a particular authority came from heaven or from humanity. It’s the first question to ask when we aren’t sure what’s right.


You Are So Special, You Know

Beautiful Grandmother God, thank you for the messengers you send our way again and again and again, to remind us of how special you have made us.


Litany of Purpose

What is focus? It is the purity of heart that wills one thing. The widow had a lot of that. Focus is behavior that has mission centrality and mission consistency.


Just Love

God of love, judgment, bodies, and will: may your word ever be light upon our paths so that we may follow you closely. Amen.


That Sinking Feeling

Suppose Peter was not called out of the boat only to walk on water. Suppose he was called out of the boat to sink, to know his vulnerability?


Longing for Cucumbers

The ancient Israelites’ longing for cucumbers was really the longing for home, whether in Egypt or in a new place. I think it’s our longing too, in our strange and fearsome time.


The Gasp

To think that – no matter what I’ve done or haven’t, whether I’m ready or unwilling – at the last my eyes will widen in delight, it relieves me unto tears.


Remember Me

I know the God of my grandmother’s prayers is the God of my tearful prayers, and the God who promised to be with Abraham is the same God who continues to be with me.
