Straight Talk About Spiritual Renewal

This healing, this coming back into ourselves, is the physical, relational, spiritual work of the summer.  This is the summer for us to allow God to do the slow, tender work of remaking our hearts and minds into the likeness of Christ – to return us to ourselves, to prepare us to be sent out afresh into the mission he has for us to do.

Our Good Shepherd

In a world full of “wolves,” of things that threaten us and those we love, we have a Shepherd. A Good Shepherd. A better Shepherd than we deserve. When Jesus describes himself as this Good Shepherd, he talks about his love for us, his knowledge of us, and his Resurrection power in us.

Every single Sunday is a holiday. Every Sunday is set apart as holy, a time for remembrance and celebration of a singular, historical event that changes everything: the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The beginning of the first day of the first year . . .

The tomb is open to let us in to our Risen Lord’s new life. The tomb is open, and Jesus calls to us. Jesus calls to you: Come, you who are weary, you who are broken-hearted, you whose bodies are failing and whose spirits are fainting. Come, look into the tomb with Mary. See how it is empty? Our Lord Jesus has risen from the dead, and he means to bring you, too, into the glorious light of his new life.

What’s in a Name?

Jesus’ favorite name, his favorite way of talking about himself, was “Son of Man.” But what does this mean? This mysterious title draws on Old Testament traditions that speak to both glory and humility, and reveals the essence of who Jesus is and what He is about.
