Jesus Is Alive?

I finalized an essay earlier today that explores the implications of Jesus and the law. I am fascinated by Jesus and His role in the history of humanity. However, somehow I forgot that He died and came back to life. This means that He is alive, but somehow separated from his people that are on earth so that we can’t see Him. What does this mean for our interactions? Does He actually interact with us or is He busy at work doing something while the Spirit works in us. Except that the same Spirit is in us as in Him,...

Disruptive Prayer

  What is it about spending time in the presence of God that completely disrupts the quiet serenity of what I call my life?

It...

Jesus Changes Everything

I have seen Jesus in a new light and it has made everything about my life irrelevant… He is holy, He is Holy, HE IS HOLY! What more can I say? It is as if I have not known before this great being that I serve. This one that can not be described with the most illustrious words, this one that cannot be seen with even the strongest eyes, the one whose reality is so great that it can never be fully revealed. This one who walked the earth and was human like I am. This one who defeated sin....

The Never Ending Song

For the past many days my heart and my head have been filled with thoughts that swirl around like patterns of leaves caught in the fall breeze that sweeps across Minnesota this time of the year. My heart is filled to overflowing and expresses itself in music, in drawing, in writing, in encouraging other people, and in reaching moments of inexpressible joy. In the same way, my mind is constantly at work exploring new ideas, synthesizing information and creating opportunities. I am becoming more fully human than I ever expected human to be and yet have no way to describe...

The Joy of Being Human

Tonight, I experienced the joy of being human. It was everything I needed to feel and part of the truth that I needed to know. The magic of the moment was created through the belief that each person contributed to the occasion and in the process of coming together, each contribution became somehow more valuable. Identity was not lost in community, but rather strengthened. As the speaker said, the magic of the moment was not a result of the setting, but of the individuals who gathered there. It could be reached by letting go of self-inflicted boundaries, reaching across pointless...
