Guardian of the Galaxy

Jesus the Guardian redeems the Galaxy from sin and death. God is not only the Guardian of the galaxy, but God has a special place in the divine heart for humankind, making us in God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). In Proverbs 8:31, we learn that God rejoices in the inhabited world and delights in […]

The Holy Spirit Guide Service

On this Pentecost Sunday, we remember that when the Holy Spirit Guide arrived, he launched the disciples on a new adventure. Following Jesus is never about retreating from the world to a tropical island and “getting away from it all,” but about following the way, the truth and the life of Jesus to reorient the […]

Paul, the Epistler

It doesn’t matter the task we face – providing meals in our community, building homes for our neighbors, caring for the sick, visiting those in prison, lobbying for equal pay, speaking out against human trafficking, mentoring a teen – we already have within us the power we need to succeed. Paul wrote to encourage us […]

Spirit-Driven Disruptions

Our challenge as Christians is to reach new people as well, following the example of Jesus and the inspiration of the Spirit. Our Spirit-driven acceptance of diversity and our Christ-inspired purity of love is something that the world needs now, more than ever. When we welcome the Spirit’s disruptions, we create a space for people […]

Between Cassandra and Pollyanna

We are among the living because of Jesus Christ. He died to free us from our old lives of sin and death. He rose again to offer us new and everlasting life in God’s Kingdom. In this is our hope: that the world, for all its faults, is not yet what it will become. In […]

Augmented Reality

Reality is things as they are. No fantasy. No illusion. No wishful thinking. Augmented reality is things as they should be. Through the power of God, we can move from the world as it is to the world as it should be. It’s a radical augmentation that makes us virtually new creations in Christ!

Risus Paschalis (Easter Laugh)

God’s greatest joke is that Jesus is not dead; he is alive again and forevermore! Our Lord is risen. Be glad and rejoice and let out a good laugh. If God can make the wise look foolish and turn the fools into sages, then let us be fools for God every day.

The April Fool

The April Fool

On this Easter Fools’ Day, perhaps this is what we have an opportunity to do: As fools for Christ, as God’s fools, we might consider in humble reverence reaffirming our allegiance to the one who pulled off the greatest jest in history. Perhaps we might reaffirm our belief that Jesus is Lord. Quite simple, actually.

Jerusalem March Madness

Jerusalem March Madness

We watch as Jesus marches into Jerusalem on a thrilling and unpredictable ride. Every opponent he faces is going to test him and try to defeat him. In this single-elimination tournament, there are no do-overs and no second chances. We hope that Jesus will cut through the chaos and emerge as the champion. But what […]
