What does it take to follow Jesus?

What does it take to follow Jesus?

Our only foundation should be our God known to us through Jesus Christ. A God who disrupts human chaos through divine challenge. Jesus who invites us to a table where everyone has a seat and who feeds us even when the plates seem empty. Jesus who takes down corrupt systems of religious and government by laying down his own life instead of destroying others’.

10 years: the story of us

10 years: the story of us

My story and your stories may sometimes seem disconnected and disjointed. Our stories are still being written. The story of our partnership in ministry has been filled with tears of sadness and anger and happiness. It’s been filled with moments of joy and mourning and every emotion in between. It’s been filled with love and love and love. And I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Here’s the good news. No matter how often we chase away and kill the prophets, God keeps sending them, God’s Word persists even in the face of folks using it to defend racism and materialism and militarism.

God’s keeps calling and sending prophets – including us.

Old vs New

Old vs New

This time of year when we are given this idea
of new year, new you
We don’t have to abandon the old
for changes that are bold
We can hold on the past
in new ways that will last

The old prayers and songs
The 23rd psalm and the balm
In gilead
Will revive our soul again when we feel our work’s in vain

Jesus shows us what is possible – a world where all are recognized as children of God, a world where the rich and the powerful are brought low and all people are equal

Jesus shows us that we can make a real difference in our world – just as he did. That we can feed the hungry and heal the sick and free the prisoner; that we can reach out to others who we think are different from us; that we can put ourselves in uncomfortable situations; that we can stand up for what’s right and Godly.

We can go out and preach Jesus. We can tell Jesus’ story. We can live Jesus’ story.
