The Less Offended Life

January 19, 2021

At six o'clock this morning, I rolled out of bed and sleepily made my way to the coffee maker. I poured my coffee, as I do every day, and settled into my favorite chair. It was prayer time—my favorite time of day. As usual, I began to fall back asleep in the middle of my […]

Is It Me or Is 2021 Starting to Feel a Little 2020ish?

January 12, 2021

What a start to the year. Just when we’d packed away the Christmas decorations and swept away the pine needles, chaos erupted. Some might say things have gotten worse; others would say it’s always been this messy, and we’re just seeing more evidence of what lies below the surface. Regardless of all that I see […]

A Weary World Rejoices

December 22, 2020

Deep abiding joy—the kind that helps us to rejoice even when weary—wouldn’t that be the most amazing Christmas gift? This is what we long for, but for many, it’s difficult to hope because 2020 has held many disappointments. Plans haven’t gone the way they should.

This particular election finds our country polarized along political lines. Many lament our collective inability to take part in civil discourse, fueled no doubt by the influence of social media. Distance demonizes, […]

These Last Days

October 27, 2020

Note: This blog post was originally given as a talk at the 2019 WWP Leader’s Gathering. It’s longer than a typical post, so I beg your patience as I ask for more time than usual in the reading. We are also including an audio link to the talk in case you’d rather listen than read. […]

Belovedness

September 29, 2020

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us.” Ephesians 5:1 Before I leave the house, my husband always asks if I have my wallet. I forget it all the time, and he says it’s good to have your ID with you […]

Seeing Yourself Through the Eyes of God

September 15, 2020

No matter what is going on in our lives, we all want what Jesus offers in Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” But how often do we read those words and think they are beautiful but hard to experience? Does this type of […]

Kick-Starting Real Change

September 1, 2020

Are you tired of your list of good intentions that never translate to action? How many times have you made a resolution (and really meant it) only to fail within a few short weeks? We’ve all been there. It isn’t that we aren’t aware of the ways we need to improve…but actually making the changes […]

In the Palm of His Hand

August 18, 2020

“I trust in you, O LORD…My times are in your hands.” (Psalm 31:14-15) These words were written by King David at a time when he was experiencing deep distress. Earlier in Psalm 31 he wrote, “My strength fails because of my misery” (Psalm 31:10). His circumstances were not what he wanted. He was bone-weary. Yet […]
