I advocate something crazy today: we need to ask others to weigh in on the health of our souls.
Today I challenge you to think about the ways of God, and as the New Year commences how well you might keep them!
This past Sunday was called the Sunday of Peace, because the Prince of Peace has come. What does that mean, and why does it matter to us? I reflect on this utilizing the story of the “Good Samaritan.” (Luke 10:25-37)
As we think about how Christians practice their faith - repentance is key. How we practice repentance, however, is shockingly simple. You’d think God wants more, but he doesn’t.
Today we consider the second most seen practice in scripture, and how it might make a positive difference in the world.
Prayer is the most common practice of the people of God found in scripture. Today we consider how that’s kind of a big deal.
Today we talk about Philip the Evangelist and how sometimes it’s ok do something different.
Revelation 14:4, “These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.” But where he goes is a life of service to God and to others. Are you willing to follow him there?
We can battle pride by boasting - but not in ourselves. (Unless you are Ron Swanson.)
Today we consider the “holy kiss” passages and what they might mean for us today. Also the Full House gif (lol) reminds me of my daughters who teach me that true affection has a physical component.
Today we think about Galatians 3:26-27 (NOTE: I accidentally said 2 in the podcast) and how baptism is like putting on Birkenstocks with socks.
I tackle a misunderstanding about what God wants us to do according to passages about Hosea 6:6 and Micah 6:8. Does God want us to be kind or does he want us to be faithful? (Though God probably wants us to be kind too.)
Put down your phone, read a book, have a face-to-face conversation, pray for a lost cause. In this way we practice resistance against the tyranny of right now and build the virtue of patience.

There is no such thing as a “Daniel fast,” unless that fast in some way resists the cultural pressure to be “of the world.” Today we consider how
We consider how Christians view getting old, hopefully like the guy below.
Today we take a few lessons from muscle memory to think about how we can make prayer as natural and unforgettable as riding a bike. So with intentionality and effort we can be the Arnold’s of prayer.
We continue thinking about how Jesus prayed. I noticed that there are a lot of emotion words used in relationship with Jesus and prayer. Perhaps our words matter less than our "heart" when it comes to prayer.
Want to pray like Jesus? Start by praying for others.
Today we consider the strange book of Song of Solomon, which breaks up the Bible with a reminder to enjoy life.
