Peace be with you!
If you’re anything like me, Easter really sneaks up on you. Even as a Roman Catholic Christian who celebrates Lent every year, I am startled out of a sugar-deprived stupor by Easter every time. I think it’s because, in my humanity, I feel doomed to live in the shadow of who I once was. I’ve been freed from many debilitating sins and habits, some more dark than others, but...

“And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. So when they had assembled, Pilate said to them, “Which one do you want me to release to you, Barabbas, or Jesus called Messiah?” For he knew that it was out of envy they had handed him over.” Matthew 27:16-18, NAB Bar-Abbas is an Aramaic name that means “son of the father.” He is popularly...
New York, New Yooooooork.
I love New York, with its harried, suit-clad, sneaker-wearing men and women in pantsuits…it smells like salt and exhaust and coffee and hot bread; it feels like steam and wind and the slap of my feet on the floors of a concrete jungle; and oh! the sounds of it…bells clanging, cars speeding, horns honking, phones calling, wheels turning, doors opening, people talking…it’s a whole...
I’ve been on the road with Jars of Clay for a few weeks now on the Shelter Tour. Every night, they sing a song written by Julie Miller called “All My Tears.” And almost every night, I sit side-stage and listen, my eyes shut to the lights, my head moving back and forth. The simple lyrics and sad melody are haunting. They transfix me. Last night I did just that…I sat on a big black...

Soundtrack: Gungor; Grace For Me Late Have I Loved You Please Be My Strength Sometimes we talk about grace like it’s a sprinkler system in the ceilings of our atmosphere; a vapor in the ethos of our spiritual experience. Sometimes we talk about grace like it’s the only thing keeping God from lashing out against us all with His full power, the only thing keeping us from utter obliteration in the...
tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
Soundtrack: John Mark McMillan; Carbon Ribs Death In His Grave Ten Thousand My Only I’m awake to my mortality today. Grey hairs and aching muscles and persistent fatigue are nothing new to me, but in this particular moment, they seem like quiet little prophets of the end of me. It reminds me of a day in 2009 when I was in Charleston, SC on tour, and I had just bought John Mark’s new album,...

Today I left home and I won’t be back till May 14th. Nearly two months of absence—the longest ever yet for me. Being on the front end of such a long trip is making me introspective. I’ve seen so many places and done so many things in two and a half short years, and I probably only remember about 1/4 of it very clearly. The view is blurry when you’re always moving. I have repeated days of...
