Weakness and Wonder: How to Worship Like Your Children

“Rachel, look! A DUCK!” I heard six-year-old Sawyer call out in a giddy voice. Strangers nearby likely assumed Sawyer had never seen a duck before, though it was actually one of many he had seen that day. As a nanny, I have watched countless adults smile knowingly at the two children I care for, as if to imply that they understand all children. Sometimes, their glances carry a sense of condescension; they view these children as naïve and unaware of how life really is. It’s as if they’re saying, “They sure are cute, but how little they know.” Ironically, I … Continue reading Weakness and Wonder: How to Worship Like Your Children

Is Life Harder Than You Expected?

Soldiers don’t learn to fight in the classroom. They learn about fighting in the classroom. Learning about fighting is crucial to successful fighting, which is why soldiers’ training always includes class time. But learning about fighting is not the same thing as fighting.

Way too often today churches seem to … Continue reading ‘The Church Doesn’t Need Any More Coffee Bars’

It Is Finished

It is Friday, April 3, A.D. 33. It is the darkest day in human history, though most humans have no clue of this. In Rome, Tiberius attends to the demanding business of the empire. Throughout the inhabited world, babies are born, people eat and drink, marry and are given in marriage, barter in marketplaces, sail merchant ships, and fight battles. Children play, old women gossip, young men lust, and people die. But today, one death, one brutal, gruesome death, the worst and best of all human deaths, will leave upon the canvas of human history the darkest brushstroke. In Jerusalem, … Continue reading It Is Finished
