Rumor Has It

“Go, tell his disciples and Peter.” Ordinarily, I don’t put much weight in rumors. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not that righteous. I listen to rumors as much as the next person, but I don’t count on them. I do, however, hold them in my mind with some degree of curiosity,...

A Story Too Good To Belong To Just One Person

“He is not here. Come see the place where he lay. Then, go quickly and tell the good news to the others.” My good friend Leslie told me about sitting by her sister’s bedside in the last days of a long battle with cancer. She said her sister talked about...

A Challenge to the Way We’ve Always Done Things

It is one of my favorite images from the genuine imitation leather Bible I received on my seventh birthday — the image of Jesus with his “whip of cords” driving the merchants out of the Temple. I think it is because in all of the other illustrations Jesus was sitting...

Cast down the mighty from their thrones (Psst, the Magnificat is talking about all of us)

I have vivid memories of being in kindergarten playing with my friends at recess.  Our school classrooms were a series of cottages with a playground behind them.  Years later, two of those cottages became a restaurant on the main highway called “The Little Pig,” but that is another story for...
