Love Big: A Review and An Idea

Last night, or should I say, in the wee hours of the morning, I did as I do when I can't sleep and I read an entire book. It was a book well worth the immersion because it sparked an idea that I can't wait to get started on. First, the book and my review: Love Big: The Power of Revolutionary Relationships to Heal the World by Rozella Haydee White  My experience with this book is very much what…

The Great Bell Chant

Wow. This gave me chills. Take some time, grab some headphones, and immerse yourself in the imagery and sound offered here. I also encourage you to challenge yourself. Rather than focus on ways this is not your tradition or faith language, focus on ways this intersects with your tradition and faith language. Where is God meeting you? How is God speaking to you?

The Miracle of Forgiveness

I have always considered myself a forgiving person. I grew up in a Lutheran household with a Lutheran Pastor as my father. We regularly discussed grace, the Trinity, and all sorts of theological ideas. Even with this foundation, the personal experience of grace and forgiveness remains indescribably life changing. I experienced one such definitive moment during the first summer that I worked at Advent. Twenty-six youth, an adult leader, and I were enjoying a week on Lake Shasta.…

I am a Christian

I am a Christian because I believe in the transformative power of Christ. There is no other way for me to say it. Without transformation, “being a Christian” is just talk. Transformation means being wrong. It means vulnerability and openness. It means admitting that maybe you aren’t a complete, perfect, finished product – that maybe there’s another way to be, another way to see, another way to live. To be Christian is to live in Christ, but where…
