Storm Clouds…

Storm Clouds As the clouds gather and the waters rise, Jesus speaks peace into overwhelming chaos.  Oh, to hear the voice of God breathing stillness not only to wind and wave, but into the spasmed lungs of worried disciples.  In the wake of panic-buying, social distancing, and disease, this is the miracle for which we pray... (Matthew 8:23-27) About the…

The Ebb and Flow of Nearness

The Ebb and Flow of Nearness What makes a person draw away from the presence of God? What brings a person back again? Like Jacob, who wrestled with God and refused to give up, God's closeness is an imperative.  If we are to be the children of God - and that is who we are - we must likewise wrestle…

Forty Days of Contentment

Forty Days of Contentment The beautiful mysticism of Lent is in its carrying of us outside of our own minds and into the experience of our bodies.  Lent is physical, with its ashen crosses smudged onto our foreheads, its veiled crucifixes and practices of withdrawal and fasting.  Throughout Lent, we live differently in the hope that we'll begin to think differently, and in…

A Safe Place to be Human What if all the things we tend to call Weakness, God names Vulnerability? If what we label Imperfection, God thinks of as the pathway to Empathy? This weekend we'll reframe our inner and outer weaknesses signposts on the way of peace, and discover the perfecting work of Christ in and through our deepest imperfections...

A Keeping of Patience

 A Keeping of Patience Grumbling is a tried and true way of 'putting God to the test' of God's patience.  Placing life's trials and turmoils within the context of God's redeeming, refreshing, and renewing grace is to see God's hand and handiwork setting the course for our hours and days on this earth. (Exodus 17:1-11)About the Author Steve Albers is…

Out of Time

Out of Time The day starts and the day ends, while what happens in between subtly shapes the way we feel about our purpose, about our world, and about ourselves.  Spend a few years around calendars and clocks and we begin to imagine our life as a series of events and milestones; some beautiful and some exhausting and troubling.  This…
