From Sunday: God’s Children Can Bake A Cake

God’s Children Can Bake A Cake Romans 8:12-17 Today is Trinity Sunday. If I am honest, I have to confess that it is not my favorite Sunday on the Christian Calendar. In fact, it is the one I look forward to the least. It reminds me of how little I know about God and how […]

From Sunday: You are Witnesses to these Things

Do I know what happened an that first Easter? How the stone was rolled away? What it was like for those disciples to encounter Jesus after the crucifixion? No, I don’t know. But when I hear about and see people doing the kinds of things that I believe Jesus would be doing if he were here with us now, I cannot help but think that he is here with us now, alive.

From Sunday: The Days are Surely Coming

I don’t have to tell you all reasons and all the ways that you could choose to despair. From gun violence and school shootings to sexual abuse and human trafficking, the reasons to turn away from the world are numerous. Yet, God does not turn away from us. God turns to us with a certain kind of empathy to say surely the days are coming. . . when God will put God’s law within us, and will write it on our hearts; and God will be our God, and we shall be God’s people.

Excerpts from Sunday: God Loves All of Us

God’s intent was never to narrow that love down to me and mine and those that I could convince to think like I think. No, the flow is in entirely the opposite direction, broad, expansive, inclusive, Loving the whole world.

Who is Jesus for you Today?

Yet, we miss it. We abuse it. We resist it. We twist it. We fashion it into something that better suits our purposes. Rather than losing our lives for the sake of the gospel, we lose the Gospel for the sake of our lives.
