A New You for the New Year

A New You for the New Year

A New You for the New Year
January 3, 2016
The Babylonians, who are credited with creating this annual celebration, were a clever bunch. Taking a rather unremarkable transition of no special significance–the passing of time–and infusing it with so much hope, promise, and potential. In the matter of a second, everything that was past, is gone, banished into the abyss, and behold it’s a new day, a new year, a new you!

    Advent #4: Forgiveness: Love's Litmus Test
    December 20, 2015
    Jesus has something to say to us about our enemies, those who hurt and harm us, something that at first blush seems so utterly laughable, so ridiculous, so out of left-field, many of us just flat-out ignore him.

    Advent #3: God, the God Who Forgives
    December 13, 2015
    The culture in which we discover Jesus is steeped with tradition, custom, and expectations, so I want to take a little time to try to unpack this passage by hopefully explaining what’s going on the story, especially what’s going on behind the scenes.

    Advent #2: Forgiveness Produces Peace
    December 6, 2015
    When we just attribute our active peace-breaking to sin, we can excuse our participation and responsibility in breaking the peace. We might turn to the first humans who took what didn’t belong to them in the garden, forever condemning the rest of us to a live of sin and rebellion. This gives way to us saying that since we have been born into sin, we aren’t responsible for our actions.

    Advent #1: God With Us: Hope Through Vulnerability
    November 29, 2015
    So we’re weak. Incredibly vulnerable. We are like the grass and flowers of the field. We are like grasshoppers. Not very flattering images. And the Lord is powerful, mighty, so far beyond us. Again, how is this comforting? How is this good news? It kind of sounds like God is just showing off, impatiently listing all of the amazing divine attributes we’re missing out on. If we look closer, it becomes clear that Yahweh is systematically obliterating all of our sources of security. For some reason, it seems that understanding our vulnerability— really recognizing it, is essential to God’s message of good news.

    The Book of Jonah #4: God’s Message to the Oppressors and the Oppressed
    November 22, 2015
    God will extend mercy to the Assyrians when Jonah knows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a second chance is not deserved. They are simply TOO evil. They could never actually repent. They will oppress me and my people again and again and again because that is who they are and that is what they do.
