Luke 1:26-28 NJB
Luke 1:26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, Luke 1:27 to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. Luke 1:28 He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, you who enjoy God’s favour! The Lord is with you.’ Luke 1:29 She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting...
sermon from this last sunday- 12 God blesses...
How often do we realize that things are dangerously good for us? These last few weeks I have been reading the works of John Wesley for 2 different classes…and it has ruined me. It is a good ruining…one general idea as stuck with me. I will summarize it here. having the form of religion….but without the power. That my friends..has ruined me
How rare is it that we both bury our own hands before God and also think about the emotions that Christ had in his passion? My prayer lately has been “harness myself to you”. It sounds odd, but it makes sense in my head. I picture myself strapping myself to Christ. It has been a rough few weeks since I took this picture on retreat. The Christian life is never “easy”...
The forgotten blog.....
I always forget about this blog, and I think my last post here said the same thing. I really look at the Tumblr (as opposed to the other 2 main blogs) as a place of confession and devotion. With that-I can’t say how much I have learned in the cycle of devotion/retreat/growth this last month or so. It has been enriching will serving as a deep rhythm at the same time. As Christian leaders...
Earlier this summer I bought an audio copy of the bible on emusic.com While the translation isn’t my favorite, it has been getting constant rotation in the office and in the house. I find that it is good for my soul to have scripture going while doing little tasks. Just part of the slow climb of life
Shooting for brutal honesty
One of the values that I have been told comes across easy in me is transparency and allowing others into my life really quick. I was surprised to see this happen, but it was drilled into during my time at the Louisiana Tech Wesley. Over the last few months I have been running in circles regarding life and asking myself alot of questions. I have questioned the theological education I am almost...
The unfolding of this year already has been interesting. Through 4 years of prayer, discernment, and conversations I have been through a journey that many thought I would never enjoy. The last years in grad school/seminary have been wonderful, and I actually enjoy school. I enjoy it so much that I was thinking of doing post-graduate work. Last week I made the decision that for right now-I will...

I have always had a soft spot for folks that want to live together. This is a great little peek into the lives of a few that have.
Wow-I forgot you were here
i always forget about this little side-blog, and then I even begin to wonder what a sideblog is at all. maybe if I get an iPhone one day I will have a better reason for this, but I guess I will keep viewing it as a place for more off-the-cuff postings, and random music stuff. Lately I have been thinking more about the idea of an active faith. So many times in life, even though I have thought I...
