God is great. That means we don't have to be in control. And that's a very good thing, especially these days!
God is good. This is the truth that we explore - so that we can hold on to it and live like it - as we kick off our new "God Is..." series. The question is, how can we come to know this for ourselves - deep inside of us - and not just intellectually? Find out more here!
Jubilee! God's reclaiming of what is rightfully God's - that means me, and you, and this world that He loves. The year of the Lord's favor has come in Christ!
If only we could see clearly…how different would we be, how different would our faith look, how different would our world look? Jesus came to give clear sight to us – and we can follow him by bringing that to others. Check it out here!
Listening is one of the single most powerful things we can do, and sometimes it's the only thing we can really offer another. So start practicing now!
What does true humility look like? It's the kind of humility that we need to cross the divide and be part of God's mending of this broken world. It's the kind of humility that Jesus shows us.

About five years ago I came across a book called The Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism. God used this book (and many others since then) to begin transforming my understanding of racism in America.
One of the most helpful ideas came in a chapter titled, “Don’t Go with Your Gut,” where author, theologian, and Jesus-follower, Drew Hart, calls Christians to adopt a posture he calls counterintuitive solidarity. To help explain, Hart makes a big claim: “most white Americans (Christian included) have been blind to the racism and oppression that has been so prevalent on this soil for the first 350 years, ever since Jamestown was formed.”
