Finding His Presence

_8.10.20 blog post

So, time for some confession. I barely give God the time of day. Yes, I know what you're thinking right now: "What? How? That's impossible. Your literal job is Christian ministry." Yeah, I would've thought the same thing before God put me on this path of vocational ministry. And yet, somehow, it's not that hard for the hours that I spend working on sermons, worship music s...

If you have had or are having a season of hardship that you see you are not alone in it. That you see that your faith is not determined by it. Above all, I hope that you see that you are known....

Discontentment with our Provision

6.6 Blog post

"NOOOOOOO, NOT EGGS", "EWWW I DON'T WANT SOUP", "CURRY, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE CURRY MOM". Somehow, not 5 minutes after waking up, my daughter has decided that whatever I'm serving for breakfast (unless its pancakes!) is "disgusting". Similarly, when its time for dinner it almost doesn't matter what I make, she informs me its her least favorite right now. Never mind, th...

A Lament for this Season

8.4.20 blog post

Sundays have been difficult. I remember the first morning we met with our House Church over Zoom. March 22nd. I remember it because I took a picture of our kitchen table - my coffee set out next to the computer, our communion elements prepared on a favorite dish, our daughter sitting happily occupied with a new activity book. It felt so picturesque (ergo, the picture) to d...

6.22.20 Blog Post Graphic (1)

The Lord has brought the Joneses to our knees (on our best days) in this difficult season. Will finishing his PhD in a season of economic downturn is not what we expected. Before he completed his time at Rice in April, my dreams were filled with possibilities: moving to a cool college town, owning a home, pursuing adoption, sending missionaries to the world with our extra....

What consumes you?

When you sit and think about your life, do you think about Jesus? Do you think about God? What dominates your thoughts? You'd be surprised to know how much that affects you....

Church Dictionary: Part 1

"Just Because It's English Doesn't Mean It's the Same Language." Sometimes things get said in church over and over and we end up forgetting what they actually mean. In part one, we discuss "Christian", "Church," and "Gospel."...

When I Simply Do Not Understand

There are times where we are confronted with things that make no sense, that terrify and hurt so, so, badly. Like Jesus, our humanity makes us utterly desperate for God to rid us of our tension and suffering. But Jesus did not wallow in self-pity or stubbornly assert His own human will. Instead, He surrendered to the Father......
