…he went into a cave and spent the night… The Lord said, “Go out and stand at the mountain before the Lord. The Lord is passing by.” A very strong wind tore through the mountains and broke apart the stones before the Lord. But the Lord wasn’t in the wind. After the wind, there was an earthquake.

Finding a Word: Listening to the Texts – 3/4/18

Wisdom shouts in the street; in the public square, she raises her voice. Above the noisy crowd, she calls out. At the entrances of the city gates, she has her say: “How long will you clueless people love your naïveté, mockers hold their mocking dear, and fools hate knowledge? You should respond when I correct you. Look, I’ll pour out my spirit on you. I’ll reveal my words to you.” – Proverbs 1: 20-23

Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature.Because of the grace that God gave me, I can say to each one of you: don’t think of yourself more highly than you ought to think… Be happy in your hope, stand your ground when you’re in trouble, and devote yourselves to prayer. – Romans 12: 2-12


Palm Sunday

Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane… And going a little farther, he threw himself on the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet not what I want but what you want.”- Matthew 26: 36-46


Holy Week

Hearing the Still, Small Voice: Finding Your Own – 3/30/18

“I have revealed your name to the people you gave me from this world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. This is because I gave them the words that you gave me, and they received them. They truly understood that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.  I’m praying for them…” – John 17-19

Micah 6:8

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
