Of Kings, Temples, and Envy

Small 2.PNG

I'll admit, I had forgotten how boring Chronicles was. Usually I think of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers as being hard to get through, but 1 Chronicles really had me slogging. I had already committed to writing a blog post and was thinking, "How in the world am I going to find something applicable in this somewhat repetitive narrative??" Of course, it was no fault of ...

God of the Quarantine

IMG_5675.PNG

I write this as COVID-19 is raging and we are under a "stay at home" mandate. I'm unsure what day it is at this point. I miss in-person interaction. And coffee shops. And working in the hospital not wondering if I'll be the next patient. I also miss the ignorance of not thinking communicable diseases could take out my friends and family.

We did this because we believe that Church is not just ...

Hate Has a Home in the World

When we believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and follow him, Jesus says that the world is going to hate us as we bear witness about him. How do we make sense of that intimidating truth? What is the proper way to respond to it? And how does the Cross help us share and live out our faith in the midst of a world that is hostile to us? ...

Seesaw of Life

IMG_5382.PNG

We often stroll through life thinking everything will be fine until suddenly, it isn’t. We easily slip into thoughts like, “I’m solid. I’m on top of things. I’ve got it nailed. I’ve planned well.
