Sunday Morning

Sunday Best

“Sunday Best” brings to mind shopping, an air of excitement, crisp pressed creases and frilly ruffles. It’s black and white. It is pomp and display. It is also orchestration, etiquette and decorum. “Sunday Best” is order brought about by protocol and expectations. And so, “Sunday Best” also brings to mind a certain uncomfortable stiffness. We’ve [...]


Unless you’re quite a bit younger than me, you’ve probably never shared your playlist. If you’re older than me, a “playlist” is the digital list of songs you like most. It strikes me that sharing that list could be kind of a vulnerable thing to do. When you share your playlist, you’re saying “listen to [...]

Humble Pie

Nobody wants it. You’ve probably been advised NOT to pray for it! But we’re getting no where with God without it. It’s humility. Come and get you some!

It CAN Get Messy

The letters to the Corinthians are somewhat unique in the New Testament. In other letters, the readers are presumed to be somewhere on a scale from alienation to active persecution by their neighbors. They are outsiders when it comes to the city culture around them. The church at Corinth seems to have been pretty cozy [...]

When I Met Jesus . . .

Every encounter with Jesus is a crossroad.  It begins with an offer.  Jesus says He can give you eternal life and that He will on the sole condition that you believe Him for it.  After accepting that initial offer comes a million invitations to follow.  Are you listening? The Gospels record the stories of numerous [...]


Maybe one of your new year’s resolutions included an exercise routine.  If so, one of the best motivators to keep that resolution is to track your progress with reference to a baseline.  By testing yourself at the outset, you’ll have a benchmark by which to objectively measure your progress. Now to really push it, you’re [...]


What do you expect when you hear we’re starting a series on the book of Revelation?  Perhaps you think of large splashes of apocalyptic modern art–images that are practically unknowable.  Maybe you think of date-setting doomsday predictions that pass by like any other day on the calendar. The Apostle John’s own introduction to Revelation leads [...]


Faith.  The word is common, but the concept is largely unexamined. Just as most individuals would describe themselves as a “spiritual person,” so it’s not likely to get challenged if you say, “you gotta have faith.”  Or, “don’t stop believing.” But what does it mean?  Is faith a steel rod that runs through your back [...]

Over It!

If a past experience is having a controlling, or undo influence in our lives–we need to get over it!  It might be something happy, and now we’re constantly trying to live up to it.  It could be something horrible, and now we’re constantly trying to live it down. Even if you could change it, you [...]
