Spiritual Formation

The Chicken Or The Egg

Growing up I had never heard of “Lent”. It was a foreign concept to my low-brow spiritual upbringing. In fact all of the “church calendar” (with the notable exceptions of Easter, Christmas and Pentecost) were seen as the machinations of the elite liturgical church used to manufacture artificial spiritual experiences. Jeesh…we are a dumb lot […]

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 […]

Beneath The Surface

It’s our new routine…and our happy place. Sitting on the back porch watching the sun rise across the small lake on which we live. Absolutely calm and still, absent of the afternoon breeze, our lake is a polished mirror with perfect reflections of the large oaks, beautiful houses and thick summer clouds that create its frame. […]

Instafamous…and why we live small lives

Instafamous…that status you get when you blow up on Instagram. Lots of followers on your feed equals lots of fame in your following. It’s all relative, isn’t it? Lots of fish seem big in a small pond. But you can can become a moderate phenom if you learn to use the site well. My son-in-law, Chase, introduced this old […]

A Question of Trust

“How long?” “Why?” These unanswerable questions plaster themselves like graffiti on my eyelids at the end of a season of loss like none I have ever known. Grief has become a familiar traveling companion. Tears have left permanent tracks on my face. Three people I have deeply loved for more years than I can calculate are […]

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 […]

Little Gifts From A Big God

Her eyes were as big as silver dollars when she looked over my head and gasped in surprise. Without taking her eyes off whatever had mesmerized her, Dianne said, “Don’t move! Just look over your shoulder.” Now those are not the first contradictory commands I’ve heard from my wife of 35 years, but I could […]
