The men rushed into the streets and began to proclaim Jesus Christ before the multitude that had gathered in Jerusalem for the feast day. The Holy Spirit arrived in a great show of power, attended by wonders and miracles, manifest before a cast of thousands. Pente...

Bible Idioms

John 20:19-31   “No, really,” he said, “The reign of sin is over. You’re free.”   “I’m with you, buddy.” You’ve probably heard that idiom and probably used it. It just means, I agree with you. It’s very common in American usage. That’s what I would tell my students, and they would love that. They love American idiomatic expressions.  We will see that this morning’s reading from John is full of idioms. See if you can find them all.   The book of John begins with the proclamation that,  ...

The cluttered lives of middle-class Americans

Long-time readers are familiar with my decade-long war on Stuff. I was raised in a cluttered home. From a young age, I was a collector. (Some might even say a hoarder!) After Kris and I got married, I began to acquire adult-level quantities of Stuff. When we moved to a larger house, I found ways to acquire even more Stuff. I owned thousands of books, thousands of comic books, hundreds of compact discs, and scads of other crap. Eventually, I’d had enough. A decade ago, I began the s-l-o-w process...

The Unquenchable Fire of Love – Part 1 Mini-Course on Prayer

Mini-Course on Prayer Part 1: The Unquenchable Fire of Love   The first Jews used the symbol of unquenchable fire to depict the all-consuming power of God’s love.
