Let the Beat Drop: A Homily on Psalm 8

May 20, 2014

O Lord, our Sovereign,     how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.     Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,     to silence the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the […]

Are You Ready to Grumble?

April 27, 2014

  They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt. And the whole congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against […]

Hope in the Midst of Lament: A Meditation on Psalm 22

April 20, 2014

We all face a problem. It is the biggest problem in the world. It is bigger than our national debt. It is more grandiose than the problem of finding water where we are running out. It is more difficult than finding a small black box on a vast ocean floor three miles below the surface. […]

A Word in Favor of Psalms

April 6, 2014

We probably do not consider it much but we need good art.  We need poetry and song.  We need beautiful things that move us and motivate us.  We need lyrics that speak to our hearts.  God understands this and so he gives us exactly what we need.  We find poetry and song scattered throughout the […]

God Is With Us

December 10, 2013

We live in a volatile world, a world that is constantly changing. Borders change. Economies change. Climates change. Governments change. How we take in knowledge changes. We live in a world that is constantly evolving and this makes many of us uneasy. Some of us may enjoy minor changes from time to time, but most […]

Thy Kingdom Come

September 11, 2013

Ask any American if they would like a king and the answer you will probably receive is a resounding “No!” We are an independent people. We are leery of our government. We do not like people telling us what to do. We bring all this with us when we become a Christian. Becoming a Christian […]

Musings

September 7, 2013

Syria Brian Zahnd has written a wonderful monologue on the situation in Syria. It is brief but to the point. It presents ways of responding in a Christian way to many of the questions and points that are being raised. How does a Christian respond to this business about a red line being crossed? Zahnd […]

Why We Sing

September 5, 2013

What do you sing? Do you sing along with the radio? Do you sing to your children, or maybe you sing while you are working? If you attend a college football game you will sing your school’s fight song and maybe even the alma mater. J.R.R. Tolkien realized the power of singing and included it in […]

May Your Name Be Holy Among Us

September 4, 2013

“Hallowed be your name” may be one of the most misunderstood phrases of the Lord’s Prayer. Do we hallow the name of the Lord? If so, how does one go about this? John Chrysostom explains that God is full of glory but that we need to glorify God in our own lives.[1] If we follow […]

Be Still and Know God

June 5, 2013

Many people have a desire to be closer to God. We certainly have this desire as Christians, but we are not the only ones. Many outsiders also want to be closer to God. There are people who are enslaved to sin and they want to break free. They want to find something that works in […]
