A Meditation for the American Financial Sector.

Micah 2:1-5 How terrible it will be for people who plan wickedness, who lie on their beds and make evil plans. When the morning light comes, they do what they planned, because they have the power to do so. They want fields, so they take them; they want houses, so they take them away. They […]

Random thoughts on a random day.

Random thought #1: Why do so few Christians fast? (At least so few of the people I’ve known.) It seems to me that in our current consumer culture, where there is such a tendency towards gluttony and addictions of all sorts, fasting is an especially important discipline. We are compulsive eaters, compulsive spenders, controlled by […]

Warning: Cleaning Your Room Can Kill You

So, I did it. I cleared out my writing room, completely overhauled it. I meant to write about it earlier, how freeing the experience was, but I’ve been busy, too busy to do much blogging, and by the time I was slightly less busy, the Implications had hit me, knocked me into a mental and […]

Questions, questions…

One of the greatest moments of this last year for me was discovering that “The Message” paraphrase of the New Testament could be downloaded from iTunes as an audio book for seven bucks. Seven bucks!

You may be a missionary kid if…

You could swear in seven languages, but don’t. You know what to do if you’re being swallowed by an anaconda. You don’t get why your friends don’t believe your bracelet is made out of elephant hair. You measure your life in countries, not years. You shudder when you see juju bags in Pier One, and […]

Hibernation

I think my brain popped a fuse last week, or at least went into hard-core energy conservation mode. Blogging may be pretty sketchy until the holidays are over, but if I find I can form a coherent sentence, I will. So, in lieu of a scintillating mini-article, (hah!) I’ll post something Chistmas-ey from my neck […]
