Growing Pains

Found an excellent blog post on questioning, deconstructing, and reconstructing one's faith. An excerpt is below, but the entire post can (and should!) be read at Experimental Theology. This is one part in a series of posts, so it may be helpful to read previous entries. Faith must and will go through the fires. In... Continue Reading →

Trust

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing... Continue Reading →

The Temple

This past Sunday morning, I experienced one of the best sermons I’ve ever heard. I know that sounds trite and hyperbolic, but seriously – this one moved me. While listening to our minister’s powerful exegesis of the second chapter of Galatians, my brain made a connection to a book I’m currently reading: Simply Christian by... Continue Reading →

For Guidance

O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light riseth up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what thou wouldest have us to do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in thy light... Continue Reading →

Easter Evening

On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples... Continue Reading →

Easter

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them,... Continue Reading →

Day 21 of the series Lenten Letters, forty days of contemplation in the form of correspondence to my best friend. Dear Friend, My mother would have been so pleased that you made her broccoli casserole this week, especially because you made it on an ordinary day. In our family that dish was reserved for special... Continue Reading →

Influences

Day 17 of the series Lenten Letters, forty days of contemplation in the form of correspondence to my best friend. Dear Friend, I absolutely adore that we can discuss things we don't exactly agree on, and yet still love each other so completely. We've hit upon one of those topics in the last few days,...

Fodder

Day 11 of the series Lenten Letters, forty days of contemplation in the form of correspondence to my best friend. Dear Friend, Not even the threat of catching the flu can keep UPS delivery away from my house. Thank goodness. Today's haul will be turned into future letters.

Simple Message

Yes…this video is actually more about listening than viewing (more of an audio recording set to a static picture than it is video); but, this is probably one of the top five sermons I've ever heard. Dr. S.M. Lockridge preaches a simple message: Jesus is our King. If only we could hear messages such as... Continue Reading →

Seminary

When I was 11 years old, I started the yearly tradition of spending two weeks every summer with my maternal grandmother in in the "city." Having grown up on a farm without running water or phone service, staying with my grandmother was an adventure in more ways than one. At Grandmother’s house, you could use... Continue Reading →
