So, what are you giving up for Lent? Not sure yet? I have a few suggestions. Growing up, my family didn’t celebrate Lent. It wasn’t part of our faith tradition. But the older I get, the more I think Lent is a good idea—and not just because it provides us with a religious-sounding excuse to […]
Time spent in the wilderness is not comfortable. In the wilderness, we feel isolated, vulnerable, and unfruitful. It can be a place of great grief and suffering. But the wilderness is also a place where we meet God, and learn to rely on him and him alone. It is a place where we begin to […]
Hagar’s story is really hard to read. There’s so much tragedy, and so much injustice, much of it perpetrated by people who were supposed to be followers of God. But it’s also an important story, because it shows that God cares about the suffering of those society has used and cast aside. That he sees the humanity of people […]
So, I just saw that new Kia commercial ripping on participation trophies. Take a peek. I get it. I really do. Some people feel that giving everyone trophies makes winning one seem like less of an accomplishment. And when everyone gets a trophy for just showing up, we aren’t teaching our kids how to deal […]
I don’t have nightmares often, but last night I woke up with a start, knowing there was no way I was going back to sleep for a while. I grabbed my laptop and decided I’d catch up on what was happening with my online friends, since I’d spent the past two days in cars or […]
Mimi Haddad, president of Christians for Biblical Equality, recently visited some of the schools using the Called Out! curriculum in Western Kenya. The support of educators and the school system is clear–Called Out (East Africa) has won their respect and confidence. The students also exhibit avid engagement and appreciation for an opportunity to hear God’s […]
It’s spring, and like the land, many people I love are in a time of transition. There must be something in the air. Some romanticize spring, but up where I live, spring is pretty much the worst time of year. Yes, it is nice that the thermometers creep above 32. But spring in the Northland is […]
Sometimes there’s so much going on that I just don’t know what to say. That’s how these last several months have been for me. My heart, my mind, my life has been spinning so fast that my fingers couldn’t keep up. I had to pull my focus in tight, to myself and the people immediately […]
Last night was one of those nights when it feels hard to breathe; when you want to rage and cry and fight and scream and sob. Nothing was wrong in my little circle, but make no mistake, things were, and are, very, very wrong. For the past week my newsfeeds have been lit up with […]
The #YesAllWomen hashtag, where women share their stories about the everyday harassment they endure and worse, is trending on Twitter. You should absolutely check it out. This is a repost from 2011, minus the first paragraph referencing an old news event. Sexual harassment is very, very real, and Christians need to find ways to deal […]
Today, I’m thrilled to feature a post by Sara Ronnevik on her journey with female pastors, as a mission-minded woman who is part of a denomination that does not ordain women. This is a great story, and she wrote it to encourage women who are considering going into ministry. Would you like to share your […]
