Good Friday, good grief

This Palm Sunday, true to form, my attention drifted as the Passion was proclaimed. However, as the narrator recounted Jesus' return to his dozing disciples after a period of intense prayer, my ears perked up at a line I'd never noticed before: "He found them sleeping from grief."

Resolved to make no more resolutions

I've never been very good at New Year's resolutions, and I know I'm not alone. Like many people, my resolutions tend to be self-serving, fairly unattainable and quickly broken. In an age in which even rest and leisure have become to-do list material, perhaps this is the year to ditch the resolutions.

The call to community

Most of us carry a longing for belonging. We long to be part of, to create, and to extend something we recognize that far too many in our world lack — authentic community.

Unseen reality: What's your sign?

While the form it takes is different for each of us, our shared call to discipleship means that whether we like it or not, each of us is a living sign pointing to the reign of God.
