Necessities

By the time this day is over, what is the one thing that you absolutely must get done today? Think about it. If you’re like most of us, you may find it difficult to narrow the list down to just one single item. If you’re like most of us, your “to do” list is packed pretty full. Way too full.  read more »

Alone At Last

Let me take you back—way back for some of you—to our adolescence, when we were just discovering that there was something strangely and strongly attractive about that portion of the population that, only months before, used to have “cooties”. When you noticed that certain someone that made your heart skip a beat, you longed to get to know them well—really well. You probably tried to find out everything you could about them, but what you really longed for was the chance to be alone with them—so you could have some private conversation, so you could say things and hear things said that no one else shared except the two of you alone.

Soul Food

OK, let’s start with this: First, I really don’t care what you eat! Second, I’ll be your pastor and your friend no matter how fat or flabby you are. Deal? Third, I’m declaring a holiday from guilt. If you start to feel guilty about your weight, you’re going to ruin a perfectly good spiritual lesson!  read more »

Walkabout: Practice and Priorities

There’s a well-worn barb directed at pastors that goes something like this: “What a great job you have! I mean, we know what you do on Sundays. But what on earth are you doing the rest of the week?!” All kidding aside, I wonder if God might ask us Christians the same thing about our spiritual lives.  read more »

Eden: Intention and Shame

Why did God make us? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t to be entertained by our cleverness or to marvel at our accomplishments. He made us for companionship. He wants to be with us! Not because  read more »

Holy Rendezvous

It’s easy to think of spending time everyday with God as a chore—a spiritual “duty” that I would do if somehow I could find the time or energy. But too often, I can’t. So I don’t. Or, I start. Then, I stop. Then, I feel guilty. Then, I don’t really want to even try again—because I know what’s going to happen—  read more »

weeds

Every spring, without fail, the trees bud, the flowers bloom, and the gardens are overtaken by weeds! It’s back-breaking work to hunt them all down and root them out. But the worst thing about weeds is that they keep growing back!  read more »

maintenance man: the practice of discipline

Getting ready for that big “first date”—sharp haircut, new clothes, car washed and waxed. We go to a lot of effort to put our best foot forward, to please and impress. But eventually the relationship becomes more like a comfortable old shoe; we stop  read more »
