united

Early Christ followers were said to devote themselves to four activities. The verb means to persistently commit oneself to something. They persisted in the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship, to breaking bread and prayer. Was there a time in our lives when we had a more vibrant version of church? When we were more persistent? Which of the four will need …

40 Days of Generosity

We have just embarked on the church season known as Lent. In some traditions this is a time to exercise the discipline of abstinence – we give some luxury up for Lent. That is a good practice indeed, but in keeping with the teachings of Jesus who supported the restrictive discipline of the law, the ten commandments (decalogue) in particular, …

Do you remember Back to the Future? Marty McFly accidentally travels back in time 30 years to 1955.

We are left to our own devices in the …

Blessed are the PeaceMakers

What is the difference between peacekeepers and peacemakers? I’m thinking that the latter requires enormous intention and effort. Keeping peace presupposes that all of that has been accomplished and now simply needs management and maintenance. Peace is a condition, a state that has been reached between at least two parties who, presumably, were not previously at peace. War is, of …

Blessed are the Hungry

We are familiar now with Jesus’ propensity for shocking or counter-intuitive statements! How could the poor be blessed? How could the meek inherit the earth? And now – how could those who hunger and thirst be satisfied? In the beatitudes Jesus travels into the ordinary human experience and charms it into His Kingdom’s values. We all experience human desire. It …

Blessed are the Meek

They are? They do? Blessed? Inherit the earth? Again Jesus shocks us with this statement. But we must remember that this is the inaugural speech for His Kingdom in which the rules are topsy turvy, upside down, or as commented by Mike Burns on Sunday at Southside “right-side up” The term meek is not one that we would immediately be pleased …

blessed are those who mourn

I had never considered the frequency of the theme of comfort in Scripture until this past Christmas’ annual pilgrimage to hear Messiah with good friends. Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. I am realizing that this is not just a situational niceness of God or an opportunity for kindness for His people but a part of the great story, the …

blessed are the poor in spirit

There is a kind of poverty that is a requirement for the full presence of God in our lives and for our full presence in His life. It is known as poverty of spirit. The term “poor” gives us a hint as to what this inner life quality is as we meditate on physical poverty itself. It is the state …

What’s in it for me?

We have had a rigorous look at the meaning of Jesus’ life, and especially his humanness, death and resurrection. In a sense this has been a “Sunday” exercise as we all fall prey at least at times to the dichotomy of life to some version of sacred and secular. Monday can feel like a different day when the meditations of …
