As 2023 winds down, I’m planning my ministry efforts for 2024. Here is a look at what I hope to do, and a few ways you can help.
Christians are called to be thankful. But it can be difficult to be when life seems like a mess—when it seems like every attempt to overcome setbacks is met with another setback. So how do we be thankful in the middle of the mess?
The creation story of Genesis 1-2 is beautiful—and scandalous. Why? It’s not the faith vs science debate. That is a smokescreen for something more profound: the question of authority.
Few of us would say our lives are exactly what we expected them to be. Our work, our families, or our circumstances are not what we planned, though (in many cases) they are still good. So how can we embrace the unexpected paths our lives take?
The world is a mess, and it’s natural to feel anxious about it. Sometimes we might even wonder if God actually cares. But he does—and he comforts us in our distress. Consider these three ways he provides that comfort.
When it seems like the world is falling apart, what should we do? While we might be tempted to look to human leaders, or to just give up and embrace an absurd form of hopelessness, there is a better solution—one that focuses on the hope we have.
The church has faced danger in every era. Some are obvious. But others seem subtle—until you recognize them. Among the most dangerous challenging the church right now? Favoritism.
The Bible calls us to pursue peace with everyone. But pursuing peace is hard work. What does it mean to live this calling faithfully?
Christians say Jesus loves us (because the Bible tells us so). But how do we react when our love for Jesus falls short—does he love us then?
In John 13:34-35, Jesus gave a new commandment: to love one another. But what is actually new about this—and what does it mean for how we live today?
