Pray For The Johns Day

There are many worthy organizations working to end human trafficking and sex slavery. These efforts refract the love of Jesus into dark, difficult  places and carry out his ministry of setting captives free. The thing is, those who sell their bodies for money or drugs are not the only captives here. Their customers – the johns – are captives, too. Anna Broadway, a fellow contributor to Christianity Today’s Her.meneutics blog, launched a prayer initiative last year called Pray For The… Read more

On oldies

I’ve heard it from a number of my age peers. And the number of classic rock radio stations in the U.S. bears it out. Boomers love the music of their youth. Of course, there’s nothing new about nostalgia. (Pun intended.) I remember my parents grooving on 1950’s and pre-Beatles 1960’s pop music, and my grandma enjoying Lawrence Welk interpretations of Sinatra and Crosby songs popular during her own salad days. Nostalgia is a filter made of cotton candy that strains out… Read more

Pilgrim’s Road Trip #3 – Babel

I posted this creative take on the Babel account (below) from Genesis 11:1-9 last February, but it bears repeating here as I continue my chronological journey through Scripture exploring the themes of our identity and experience as exiles.

Pilgrim’s Road Trip #1 – Goodbye, Eden

We live as exiles. We’re called to be pilgrims. I hope to journey through Scripture chronologically in the coming year, exploring the themes of our identity and experience as exiles. I’ll also offer some helpful thoughts about how Christ can reshape that identity and reorient our journey so we live as pilgrims. J.R.R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all who wander are lost”. Pilgrims wander with a purpose, an internal homing device that pulls them Homeward. Every exile account in the… Read more
