When the People Come Knockin’

Today, a very nice Jehovah’s Witness woman came knocking at my door,¬†seeking to share a good word with me.¬†It’s been a long time since I’ve had a religious person approach my home this way. But not too long ago, a nice young lady from a different country came up the steps, rang the bell, and […]

Remembrance :: Lent 2015

Remember. This is the word that keeps coming to mind for me this season of Lent. As we are nearing the end of Lent, finding ourselves in the middle of Holy Week, I would like to share with you what I’ve come to find so powerful about remembrance and this command to remember in Scripture. […]

Joyful Prayers

Have you ever prayed for your “enemy” because you knew it was the right thing to do? Because it’s the biblical, christian thing to do? But the whole time you did it your heart was struggling to be loving, and you felt bad because no matter how you tried, the prayer was still selfish and […]

In the Tension Between Church and God

>I’m living in the tension between the Church and God. I’m not angry with the Church. I’m not hurt. I don’t have any personal vendetta against the organized Church. I’m not jaded. I’m just kind of . . . done. But not really. It’s hard to explain. A couple weeks back I had a conversation […]

Following Freedom

>When did doing daily devotions and having a daily prayer journal become the standard by which we can declare ourselves “maturing in Christ”? When did reading the Bible become the only valid way a person can know the heart of God? When did going to a church and signing a covenant make a person an […]

A Picture with Derek Jeter

>This past week we spent a couple days in Minneapolis, MN to watch the Yankees beat the Twins. I married into a family of die-hard Yankee fans; I stood little chance. I now cheer for the winning-est team in baseball–proudly, too. We decided to check out downtown Minneapolis on Wednesday before the game, and while […]
