Asking “Why”

“You can never ask too many questions.” “There’s no such thing as a bad question!” “You shouldn’t question things. Accept it as it is.” “Just because…don’t ask why.” “…we’ve just always done it like this, I don’t know why.” “Be careful with questioning everything- it can get you into trouble.” I don’t know about you,…

The Idol of Busyness

Have you ever had one of those moments where you realize that something you thought you’d mastered was actually still a struggle? Well, I certainly have. And let me tell you, it came as a surprise to me this time. Some of you might remember a while back when I wrote about boundaries. I shared…

Are We Getting Prayer Right?

This past Christmas I received a book that’s given me new eyes through which to read my Bible. The book is called “Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes” by Kenneth E. Bailey.

Advent…

Advent Week 3: Grace

I want to start by sharing a fascinating story with you. I heard it told recently in a podcast by Eric Ludy, and I can’t shake it out of my memory because it really impacted me!!! This is my “debriefing” of his sermon and my thoughts on the topic of the grace. I hope you’re…
