Not The King We Deserved

Who is the King born on Christmas Day?  Why does He die for us when earthly kings demand we die for them?  Jesus is not the King we deserved in terms of wrath and punishment, but the King we needed in terms of grace and forgiveness.  We must dispel the myths about who we believe…

Why a Manger?

The manger was Joseph’s last option. Nothing else was available. “No room in the inn,” everybody told him. So the manger would have to do—a feeding trough for barn animals. Unremarkable, ordinary. Like us. We too may wonder why God would ever want to be with us. We wonder this because of the poor image…

Acts of Kindness: Hope for the Hopeless

During the holiday season, when suicide is at its height, comes this amazing story of H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Escape…darkness, deception, despair a la Oscar Schindler).

EQ: Sleep Deprived

We all know what happens when we are sleep deprived. We get cranky, easily offended, over-sensitive. Sometimes the most spiritual thing we can do is go to bed and get some rest. When you think of it, this is what happens when we come to Jesus. We are saved from vain, religious striving. We are…

EQ: Captive Thoughts

EQ: “I’m Not OK, You’re Not OK”

But how do we become OK? Road rage. Family fights. Strife at work. Whether you’re Christian or not, we have issues! People who don’t go to Church have issues. People in the Church have issues. (Which is why some people have decided not to go to Church.) So what’s the difference? Why go to Church?…
