• COLUMN: We can learn from the 'bad manager'

    Today’s scripture passage is from Luke 16:1-15:
    Jesus told his disciples: “There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions. So he called him in and asked him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you cannot be manager any longer.’

  • COLUMN: Is God waving at you?

    Just about every morning I get out and walk the dog and wave at the neighbors as they drive past. Some I know well, some I don’t, but I wave and almost everyone waves back. In a small town we just sort of learn to wave at everybody, but each wave means something a little different.

  • COLUMN: The cost of following Jesus

    Today’s reading from Luke chapter 14, verses 25-27: “Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: ‘If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.’”

  • COLUMN: Let your shoes bring good news

    Every morning we put them on. Maybe steel-toed boots if you work construction, maybe black dress shoes if you work in an office, or perhaps tennis shoes if you are getting ready for school. We all put them on and then take our first steps out into the world.
