If You’re a Knee, Be the Best Darned Knee You Can Be

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ…the body is not made up of one part but of many.  Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not […]

Truth is Bigger Than Fear

Two women sit across from each other, one with exhaustion tugging violently at her lower lids.  Her shoulders curl inwards toward her torso in defeat.  “I just don’t know what to do anymore,” she confesses, broken.  “Everything I do is for everyone else.  I never have time for me.  If anyone asks me to do […]

Putting the ‘Hope’ in ‘Hopelessness’

In the aftermath of tragedy such as that at Sandy Hook Elementary, we as a people often find ourselves burning bitterly over one three-letter word.  “Why?” we plead in desperation, unable to make sense of evil.  And yet, in the silence of tears, no answers emerge.  The next quandary, then, becomes a question of God’s […]

What is a Disciple?

I recently read a brilliant article titled Christianity Without Commitment? by a Moorlands College theology student regarding Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s definition of “discipleship”. (If you don’t know who Dietrich Bonhoeffer is, get to know him. He’s awesome). In this student’s message, he essentially asks the question, “What is a Disciple?” I will pose that question now […]
