As Jesus went about healing the least of these Matthew lets us in on a little secret in Matthew 12:15-21. Matthew tells us that Jesus’ healings were a direct fulfillment of Isaiah’s words about the suffering servant in Isaiah 42:1-4,

“18 “Here is my servant, whom I have chosen,     my beloved, with whom my soul…

I want to speak into a lot of the hurt that I see going on out there in Christian conversation because I believe there is a better way. It must start with a humble recognition of our own fraility and imperfection and then move toward an attempt to truly understand another person. So here goes…

I am not interested in back…

A husband and wife come in for marriage counseling. Things are falling apart. They should have come in long ago but here they are and things don’t look good. She never apologizes. He always gets what he wants. She doesn’t feel like he cares about her. He never tells her that he loves her.   That isn’t anything new. He was never…

By the time the first century rolled around race was quite the hot button issue in Judaism. The Jewish people were living under Roman (read foreign/Gentile) oppression and occupation. Before that it was the Seleucids and before that the Ptolemies of Egypt. Under Seleucid rule they faced tremendous persecution for their faith by the notorious Antiochus Epiphanes that sparked the…

It seems like race has always been an issue when it comes to faith. I don’t mean to start off on a bleak note because I think there is a lot of hope and I think it has been the voice of Christians at various times in history (including the present one) that have been a very positive force for…

Reconciliation is one of the most important topics of our faith today. It spans everything from big picture issues like racism and salvation to things just as massively significant but as small as healing a single relationship. This is what church is about – a community of the reconciled. This is what mission is about – reconciling lost people with…

There was something kept secret by God in generations past that was made known through Jesus Christ. This might be hard for us to wrap our minds around because we are so familiar with the Christian faith but in those days there were things that God only revealed in His own good timing,

“Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you,…

Zimbabwe recently fazed out its hyper-inflated currency. At one point this year 1 U.S. dollar was worth 35 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars. As they phase their currency out and phase in U.S. dollars, citizens of Zimbabwe were receiving $5 for every $175,000,000,000,000,000 Zimbabwe dollars in their account. That is 175 quadrillion with a “Q.”

I don’t know how many denominations of currency…

When we start talking about speaking truth to power…there is only one side of that equation we typically like to be on. We want to be the truth teller, not the truth listener. We want to be the hero…the one who has the insight and the courage to “stick it to the man.” Whether it be the nasty letter you…

It had been a few years since I watched Shawshank redemption. I noticed it was coming on and recorded it a few weeks ago (the made for TV version…the unedited version is hard to watch for me). Missy and I finally had a couple of hours the other night to watch it. I am sure most of you are familiar with the movie but for those who aren’t, there…
