I Hope So

The words came across his desk through tears laced with deep compassion. “It will get better.” My resigned response was simple. “I hope so.” I had used those words a thousand times in darker moments of life when pain was the order of the day. It had served as my expression of inner weariness and psychic exhaustion. A sort of […]

I Thirst

We had just left the opening night of our church’s passion play. The scene that unfolded in the restaurant is still a source of laughter around our house. I was worship and arts pastor at a substantial church bent on authentically reproducing the Crucifixion every year. (That year we nearly killed Jesus by dropping him off the […]

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks. They are the bane of so many women…more precisely, so many moms. Tiny scars that form because a body is being radically reshaped to make room to bring life into the world. An incalculable amount of money is spent on creams, ointments, and other magic potions guaranteed to erase these tiny scars. But you […]

The boy had suffered innumerable indignities and caused incalculable anxiety for everyone he loved. The degree of pain and depth of suffering had taken its toll on the once-expectant heart of this committed dad. His […]

That’s My Dad

My Dad died two months ago. I was privileged to speak at his memorial. With Father’s day around the corner, I thought I’d share some excerpts from that eulogy to honor his memory…. If you knew my Dad or ever sat under his ministry, you most likely know the words: “The Cedars of Lebanon.” It was the title of His […]

Leaking Life

Leaking life…every day for twelve years. That’s what was happening to a woman who snuck up on Jesus in a last-ditch attempt to get well. (Luke 8:43-48) You see, she’d had a menstrual hemorrhage for twelve years. Since, as Scripture says, “Life is in the blood”…she was literally discharging life. What’s worse, she had spent her […]
