Perhaps

As we enter into this night and the Last Supper I cannot help but think about what was going through Jesus’ mind during these final hours of his life. Here is a man who knew he was about to be betrayed by one of his closest, and denied by another. Here is a man who had to see that he was going to die on the cross alone, shouldering the sins and burdens of the world and giving himself up for all of us. How can we take that single act of sacrifice and apply it to our own lives?

Faith & Insistence

Over the past few days, it seems as if some of the feeds on the various social networks I belong to have been peppered with 'nones' trying to convince others or lure them into an ill-fated debate on why God doesn't exist. I say ill-fated here because there's absolutely no way of getting these folks off their pedestals and from the outset it just appears it's a way to provoke and not have a thoughtful discussion on what is just a difference in beliefs.

Can we talk?

Our community needs to be protected, taught, loved and shown the extraordinary love that God has for us and we can't do any of that if they don't trust the leaders of the church. It disgusts me that sex abuse and cover-ups happened and I think about it all the time, but I do believe that we can look to those that are doing good in the church as examples of what we can rest our faith upon.
