Where the Spirit of the Lord Is

Where the Spirit of the Lord Is

The concept is tricky: our God is three, but is also one. I remember as a child my mother explaining the Trinity to me, with an imperfect if obvious analogy: Water is liquid, right? But what about when it's heated and it becomes something else (steam)? Or what about when it's frozen and it becomes something else (ice)? The same thing can manifest in different ways. 

Of course, that didn’t exactly clarify things for me… I remember being left vaguely wondering if God manifested himself differently at different temperatures—in the desert, say, or in Antarctica.

But as I matured, I came to see the Holy Spirit, arguably the least understandable of the persons of the Trinity, as the most personal form that God takes. After all, the Holy Spirit is with us and inside us. Every thought we have, every place we go, every moment of our lives, we’re not alone.

Nothing Ordinary Here

Nothing Ordinary Here

The paradox about ordinary grace is that there’s nothing at all that’s ordinary about it. Grace is exceptional, supernatural, the very center of our relationship with God. Grace is the infinite love of God the creator shown to the very limited created one; the peace of God given to the restless; the unmerited favor of God granted to everyone willing to turn to him.

Helping Scripture Come Alive for Your Children

Helping Scripture Come Alive for Your Children


It was Bible Time, which meant my children were curled up on the couch with their blankies, ready for naptime. I read to them the story about Noah, and when I came to the part about loading up the animals, I paused. "Don't you wonder what it would be like to float in a boat with all those animals?" I asked. My sleepyheads shrugged. Grinning, I pulled the cushions off the couch and shouted "Let's go get all of our stuffed animals and find out!"

When God Speaks...And We Listen

When God Speaks...And We Listen

Isn’t it interesting that during Advent we tend to think more about prayer? As we get ready for the coming of Our Lord, we naturally find ourselves thinking more and more about that manger scene, the glory of the angels, the astonishment of the shepherds.

Some of the issues that surfaced in the 2016 presidential campaign will stay with us for a long time; among them is the question of respect for women. When people whose words are repeated on the world stage say demeaning things about women and women’s bodies, what are our children learning?
