Based on Exodus 14.19-31

I’m going to read you some names from the Bible. 

Tell me if they sound familiar:

Pontus Pilate, King Nebuchadnezzar; King Herod; King Ahab, Queen Jezebel, Pharaoh. 

All familiar, right?

What do they have in common?

Yeah, they were bad people, the wh...

The word Reconciliation is a tough one, isn’t it? 

It comes with it a whole trunkful of baggage. 

First and foremost, it’s not something that we practice every day.

Especially us Americans.

We love ou...

I have some good friends — I haven’t seen them in quite a while — but they’re some of the best people I know. 

I met them way back when I was about 22 years old. 

They have normal jobs, families, friends and activities.

Do you know what I...

Did you ever play that game as a child, where someone whispers a sentence into your ear, and then you whisper it to the next person, who whispers it to the next person and so on?

Based on Matthew 14.13-21

Most of us have heard, read or studied this very popular Bible verse about Jesus Feeding the 5,000 or Jesus Feeding the Multitudes. 

It’s popular because it not only shows us an amazing miracle of faith— thousands of people gather to hear Jesus’...

Based on Romans 8:26–39

In the documentary film titled “Between Homes,” a young man named Nick Jaffe decides he needs to do something memorable in what so far has been an ordinary life.

Based on

Genesis 28.10-19a 

I’d like for you to think of  a special place in your life. 

A place — a physical location — where you feel extremely connected to God. 

Maybe it was a long time ago, maybe that place is far away or long since changed.

I love to go for walks. 

Whether it’s out in the woods or even on the city streets, I get so lost in my mind — in a good way — that I can walk miles and miles sometimes.

Where my seminary is, there are great neighborhoods to walk.
