A Word to the Weary

WTTWblog

Weariness is the theme I’m hearing and the vibe I’m feeling from a lot of people these days. When COVID-19 first hit and the world went into lock-down, churches scrambled to get their services online and find creative ways to care for their people. Back then, when someone asked me how I was doing, I answered “Crazy busy!” Now I say, “Crazy exhausted!” which is ...

Sufficient Sufferings

Blogpostlogo

Many of us have heard stories of others’ sufferings that cause us to think something like, “Oh my goodness; I have no problems.” Or, “Wow, compared to that person’s suffering, I have no right to complain.” Leaving a right to complain aside: these are often unhelpful and possibly even unfaithful responses to the sufferings we witness and experience....

Last week I talked about our responsibility as image-bearers to show the world what God is like--to reflect his image like a mirror. That's our privilege. That's our responsibility. And we can't do it alone. ...

But in other seasons...

Stop It

StopItBlog

An old Comedy Central skit features Bob Newhart as a therapist. He meets a new client who suffers from the fear of being buried alive in a box. Newhart drops some forceful, two-word therapy on her: “Stop it!” As you can imagine, the session ends as poorly as it started. Newhart warns his client, “Stop it! Or I’ll bury you alive in a box!”...

Making Mud Pies in the Slum

Black and White Sculpture Plain Collages Instagram

I can’t remember the first time I read C.S. Lewis’ mud pies in the slum analogy, but I will never forget the imagery: It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a s...
