She must have been in her 70’s. That age where you have finally come into your own. Settled into confidence. Ready, now, to share the wisdom of what life had impressed upon her soul. Those lessons, seared right into her heart, were manifest in her home, in her heart, and in her habits.  Her passion, so…

Community. I’ve been thinking a lot about this word. It’s a word I hear my Christian friends use a lot. And it makes me wonder – Do I have one? What does it look like when you have one? How do you know when you are in one? How do you find one? What does…

Story. I’ve encountered the idea of story in lots of places lately. The stories we tell with our lives. How to live a better story (A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story, by Donald Miller). How to participate in God’s story. How our stories connect with those…

We’ve talked about this before… My Bible group. It might be one of the greatest blessings I have experienced over the past two years. People often ask me what it is I love so much about it. I don’t know if I even have the words to explain, because it’s about more than just opening…

Sometimes I like to visit other churches. This is especially the case when I travel. There is something amazing about going to another part of the country and joining together to worship with people who have like minded beliefs.  A lesson is always waiting to be learned. Such was the case last fall. It was a…

“There are no accidents with God.” That is the last thing my new friend Joy said to me when we parted ways this evening. We met on a flight to Virginia where we just happened to be sitting next to each other. Interestingly, I didn’t say a word to the sleeping lady on the earlier…

The tables in the room were full. Every seat taken except the seat across from the woman with three jute necklaces around her neck and the small Indian girl.  They ate in silence, those two, scooping the curry rice and fresh vegetables onto their forks.  It was the simpleness of her white hair, the wrinkles…

“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up” 1 Corinthians 8:1 I left Lone Star Taquería with a full mind and heart.
