“Mary’s Song”

Luke 1:46-56

Can you think of a time when you did something reluctantly because you didn’t feel you had what it takes to do it well?  Mary, after being given the news by God that she would bear the Son of the Most High, rejoiced at this incredible task.  Granted, at that point she may not have been thinking ahead to the details and the hardship that

“The Canaanite Problem”

For several weeks I’ve been studying what some have referred to as “The Canaanite Problem.” This “problem” comes from the incredibly violent stories of Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land (for a glimpse you can look at Joshua chapters eight through eleven). In these passages the Israelites are commanded to destroy cities,

“Impediments to Godly Wisdom”

Have you noticed all the images of Jesus that people have created throughout the centuries?  Growing up, my mother displayed funeral prayer cards from family who had passed away, and I would look at them in contemplation.  The cards had images of Jesus on the front and prayers to Jesus on behalf of the deceased on the

“King of Kings”

As Election Day approaches, Americans are considering the direction of our government.  But who, really, is our “ruler”?  Timothy 6:14-16 speaks of, “the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who

“Job”

Job is a curious book of the Bible.  The author is unknown, and the time and place of writing are unknown.  The narrative itself leaves us with lots of unanswered questions.  Some suggest that Job never lived, but was rather a description of a reality, like an illustration of Israel or a character in a fable.  So, what answers are there to be

“Biblical Imagination”

In Eugene Peterson’s memoir, The Pastor, he talks a lot about having a “pastoral imagination,” which can basically be defined as “a way of seeing, a seeing of more than what is immediately present, what one scholar calls a ‘seeing in depth’”. A biblical imagination is finding ourselves within the biblical story.

“Time”

“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.” Gen. 1:3-5

“The ordinary idea which we all have before we become Christians is this.  We take as starting point our ordinary self with its various desires and interests.  We then admit that something else–call it ‘morality’ or ‘decent behaviour’, or ‘the good of society’–has claims on this self:  claims which interfere with its own

From Sunday, August 26, 2012

The quote from the sermon:

“But faith–unlike the other kind of knowledge–is not a constant.  It is a light which blazes like a thousand suns–at some times; at others, it flickers dimly, casting shadows of changing shapes.  But even when it is weak we struggle to brighten the flame–for it is the most precious of commodities.  Man knows no blackness to match the darkness when that light has gone out.  And no man who has ever seen it will rest happy until it is rekindled.  And when it burns bright, all other lamps are feeble.”  –Rabbi Chanan Brichto, as quoted by Dr. John Walton
