King of Kings

July 29, 2019

King of Kings On May 19, 1790, New England experienced a remarkable “day of darkness.” The day began cloudy and cool with light rain. However, as the day progressed the sky grew darker so that by midday, the sun could not be seen at all. Many people feared that the day of judgment had come. It is easy to see why, given today’s passage which...

A Coming King

March 27, 2018

A Coming King In the 1930s, the Southern Plains region suffered an ecological disaster now called the “Dust Bowl.” Homesteading legislation had brought inexperienced farmers, incentivized by land ownership, into the region, and they had responded to the demand for European grain by plowing up the grasslands to use for farming. But without...

Devotion for December 08, 2008

December 8, 2008

Devotion for December 08, 2008 In her poem, “Advent,” Victorian writer Christina Rossetti put herself into the parable of the ten virgins (Matt. 25:1–13) and wrote of waiting and longing eagerly for the coming of Christ. “The watch is long betimes and late, The prize is slow to win,” she said. Life is a difficult journey—full union with Jesus...

Jesus, Son of Joseph

March 6, 2016

Jesus, Son of Joseph For four years, Rob Ford was the scandal of the city of Toronto. Ford was caught texting while driving. He associated with people of ill repute, including drug dealers and convicted criminals. Ford often showed up drunk to public festivals and city events.

Our Lord on the Mount of Olives

September 27, 2018

Our Lord on the Mount of Olives At 8:10 a.m. on the morning of January 13, 2018, a heart-stopping alert was transmitted to cellphones throughout Hawaii: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.” Understandably, panic ensued. For all people knew, the world as they knew it was about to end. As...

God’s Intentions for the World

December 16, 2017

God’s Intentions for the World A GPS navigational system can be a useful tool when driving in unfamiliar territory. Sometimes after taking a wrong turn, however, the best navigational advice is simply, “Turn around.” Our reading today offers the spiritual equivalent to this GPS command: repentance. Although God was “very angry” (1:2) over...

A Jealous God

March 23, 2018

A Jealous God Many parents have had a version of this conversation with their children: “If you don’t clean your room, you can’t have a friend over to play,” or “If you don’t return the car with a full tank of gas, you may not borrow it next weekend.” The child does not clean her room or return the car filled with gas—and then acts shocked...

A Shepherding God

March 28, 2018

A Shepherding God Kenneth Bailey, author of The Good Shepherd, was familiar with shepherding culture. He spent seven years as a child in the south of Egypt, returned years later to serve as pastor in rural Egyptian churches, and later lived in Bethlehem “where shepherds grazed their flocks around us.” Bailey brought these personal insights...

By My Spirit

July 6, 2019

By My Spirit In April, a fire ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The Gothic cathedral, which began construction in 1163, took nearly 300 years to be complete. Compared to this, the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem might seem relatively brief. However, discouragement can make even the most worthwhile effort seem to drag. Rebuilding...
