Matthew 6:9 - Why Pray?

Why feed your cat? Why drink water? Why fuel your car? Why talk to your wife, or your dad? Why Pray? What is the common theme in these questions?...

Fight The Battle: Armor Inventory

Make no mistake, we’re in a fight. It’s hand to hand combat against our own flesh, the world’s systems, and Satan himself. We will need to continually come back to Christ, link arms with each other, cling to His word, and ask God for help.

Ephesians 6.10-20: Where Idealism Comes To Die

“This is where idealism comes to die.” She said it so matter-of-factly. DC’s an interesting place. We love Silver Spring, and are beginning to figure out life here. We’re finding real relationships, city rhythms, celebrations and needs, loving this place and people. And yes, idealism dies here; I’d say Lindsey is right....

The Good Samaritan

The wrong question guarantees the wrong answer. Pharisees are great at this kind of thing. It’s why we find ourselves asking the wrong questions all of the time. Jesus simplifies our lives, goals, budgets, dreams, priorities and schedules, saying: eternal life is found in two places, loving God and loving your neighbor. A Pharisee can’t package this (Lk10.29-37...

Smelly

“You stink man… no seriously, you stink.” Ha! It was my sophomore year of college. I’ll blame it on youthful naiveté. What a time. It takes a good, bold, friend who cares enough to tell you something like that, for your own good. Maybe, just maybe, showering after lacrosse practice was a good idea. Classic.

They had made some really great idols, objects around which their lives rotated. It was a silly thing, worshiping statues of wood, dressed up with gold, silver, paper. Yet, the people were hopeful. Hopeful that statues would walk, ...

Bossa Nova

There’s something sweet about rhythm. Through your prayers and the resultant work of God, our bossa nova of life is swaying side to side like we’re listening to the sultry sound of Gilberto’s Girl From Ipanema. A friend said it and we’re living it: the high highs, and low lows of church planting. Things are swinging high this week. A scratchy phono...

Priorities

It’s Wednesday. Mid week. Lots has happened, for you and me. Monday and Tuesday dominoes have toppled, so Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will fall if you want them to or not. Things set in motion tend to stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force, and the coming few days of this week have been set in motion. Appointments are set, calendars packed, every ho...

Breaking In

Imagine how much planning went into that magnanimous intersection between the Son of man and all of humanity. I bet the Father, Son and Spirit bubbled with excitement waiting to unfold the tangible steps of a perfect plan to rescue an imperfect world full of imperfect people. All of eternity culminated in that humble moment when Mary brought forth Jesus to a motley crew of...
