Rejoice in the Source of Our Hope

Many of you might be feeling a bit weary. I can hear it in your voices. I can read it between the lines of written words. I am weary too, friends. From big things to small things — health, family, a heartbreaking, unexpected death, a global pandemic, even a broken refrigerator — it has been a hard season. And it seems that one issue after another has kept me out of my art studio. I haven’t created any new art for some time, and I figured I’d just let it go until the new year, get a fresh start t...

Associate pastor at Water of Life Community Church in Fontana dies from COVID-19

Heavy metal guitarist turns Kenneth Copeland sermon into a sick hard rock banger

Kenneth Copeland is one of the more notorious fire-and-brimstone MegaChurch millionaire con-artists of today. So guitarist Andre Antunes just did the logical thing: took one of the man's hellfire speeches and set it to a heavy metal song. Here's the lyrics, if you want to scream along: In the Name of Jesus, standing in the office of the prophet of God,I execute judgment on you COVID-19. — Read the rest

My Plea to Those Who Hold Strong Views on Masks and Lockdowns

I’ve felt the tension most of the year. Good friends hold very different views on whether the pandemic exists, how the government should respond, and what churches should do. And they aren’t afraid to share them! I’m grateful for my friends. I’m also grateful for how they are making me think through various issues related to the church. And I like them a lot. But here’s my concern: that we are in the process of creating two streams of churches divided over our view of the pandemic — most v...

The Delight of Eating Together

For months, the Holy Spirit prodded at my heart to reach out to a widow down the street from us. Weeks went by and then months of ignoring a growing conviction, until all the excuses I’d wrapped so beautifully started to unravel. With a thumping in my heart and apologies on my tongue, I gave her a call. I had no idea how she’d react, and I honestly felt overwhelming guilt for waiting so long. Cognizant of her health, I offered a front porch, physically distant coffee date. Without hesitation, wi...

Two More from Laudator.

1) Shocking Blunders: Mark Thakkar, “Duces caecorum: On Two Recent Translations of Wyclif,” Vivarium 58 (2020) 357-383, is a review of Stephen Penn, John Wyclif: Selected Latin Works in Translation (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2019), and Stephen Lahey, Wyclif, Trialogus (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013). Some of the errors Thakkar exposes are quite shocking. I select two (both from Penn’s translation) as exhibits for my gallery of howlers. Thakkar, p. 367: Jesus’s famous...

Christmas Nativity Mistakes: Cybertrucks and Overbooked Inns

Language is humanity’s first technology (Gen 2:20), and it powerfully shapes what we see and don’t see about the world. A great example of this comes from the the King James Version (1611) of the first Christmas, which reads: “While they were there [Bethlehem] … she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger (phatnē); because there was no room for them in the inn (katalyma)” Luke 2:6-7 These seven words—”there was no room for them in t...

The Reason for This Advent Season

For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (CSB) Today, we mark the first week of Advent, a season of expectant waiting and longing for Christ to come again as we celebrate His first coming. Perhaps more than ever, we feel the ache of wanting God to make all things right again, so let’s let the words of this familiar passage marinate in our h...

Choosing the Path to Bethlehem

I still remember sitting at that outdoor café table across from my mama as a newly-minted widow. In those days, it was hard for us to find time away from my three young daughters to process together. We savored our sandwiches on freshly-baked bread and sipped cappuccino on that fall day. Our conversation wandered to the book of Ruth, which we were walking through at our church Bible study. Was it any wonder that just a few months after my husband soared to heaven that God would have me circle ba...

Changing Our Posture by Practicing Gratitude

My kids are fifteen months apart. All they’ve known is being with each other, occupying the same space, having a constant companion. My daughter’s like my husband — logical, introverted, often craving space to herself so she can read or play unbothered. My son, on the other hand, is like me — affectionate, empathetic, always craving company and someone to play with. When they’re apart, they miss each other, wondering what the other is up to, what things they might be missing out on that the othe...

A Message to Weary Pastors

We just entered the second lockdown this year here in Toronto. We can’t have more than 10 people gather for worship. Churches are weighing how to respond, but this move certainly limits our options. It feels a lot like March 15 again. You may not be in lockdown as we are, but I know you’re dealing with the pandemic too. And it’s tiring. Thom Rainer has written, “The vast majority of pastors with whom our team communicates are saying they are considering quitting their churches.” I don’t co...

Here’s to a Simple Christmas

A simple Christmas — don’t we all, to some degree, hope for just this? For an opportunity to opt out of the hustle and bustle this season generally brings? There always seems to be just so much to do. So many places to be. So much to accomplish. Gifts to purchase and then wrap and then deliver. Cards to order, sign, and send. Cookies to bake, gatherings to host, friends to see. Traditions to uphold, family to visit, floors to scrub. But this year, many things are different, yet a few big things ...

Jeremih is on the road to recovery after contracting COVID-19. The R&B singer’s family says he’s out of the ICU and has been transferred to a regular hospital room. “Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU,” his family said in a statement. “He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room.

Our Desire for a Redemption Story

Because my husband spends two to three hours a day driving to and from work, we’re selling our home of fifteen years to move closer to his office and many of our friends, family, and activities. We last moved when our youngest daughter was six weeks old, the year after my mother passed away. For multiple reasons, that period was a mix of joy and sorrow blurred by sleep deprivation and the exhaustion of caring for and moving a family of ten. After months of painting everything in sight (that’s me...

Trump got 81% of the evangelical vote in 2016, but that number dropped to 75% in 2020. Meet the evangelicals who rejected him.

81% of white evangelical Christians voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, but his support has been dropping in recent months.  Pastor Doug Pagitt of Minneapolis is going on a bus tour across the country to convince fellow Christians not to vote for the president.  Pagitt has gathered the support of more than 1,600 faith leaders to endorse Joe Biden with him.

How to Untangle Your Heart and Not Miss God’s Fingerprints

My heart is often tangled, a crisscross of hopes and dreams, worries and what-ifs and never-ending to-do lists. I pray throughout the day, offering each twisted strand to God, asking Him to unravel that which leaves me feeling knotted up — in the first moments of the morning before my feet hit the floor, in “Fix-it-Jesus” desperation when I’m DONE helping kids through distance learning and laggy internet, in quiet reflection as I wash the evening dishes. When the phone rings with bad news, when ...

How to Pray for a Baby (Prayers for Women Trying to Conceive)

There is no one “right” way to pray to get pregnant! These prayers for women trying to conceive a baby are inspired by Hannah in the Bible. She tried to get pregnant for years, and prayed to God for a baby. If you’re praying to get pregnant, you’ll find hope and faith here – even if your body just isn’t cooperating. You may also be searching for help on how to pray for healing in your body, or even help with your marriage. So much in your heart, so many prayers for pregnancy and healing! And...

Now please cover your germhole." Look, dude, it's Delta's airplane. If they say you gotta sing "I'm a little teapot" to fly, then you sing "I'm a little teapot" or you don't fly and I don't...

The Hardest Thing About Anxiety and Depression

One of the hardest things about anxiety and depression (at least for me) is not being able to always name it or explain it. Sometimes I can identify the triggers. I can feel a fresh swell and call it out for what it is — mental illness. But other times it’s just tears below the surface at the dinner table. It’s heightened irritability at my children. It’s an unsettled spirit and coffee jitters I can’t shake and wishing all the people and responsibilities would just go away (even when I love my p...

What Is, What Could Be, and The Art of Yearning For What Never Was

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne,  I enjoyed you letter dated October 17th, but I’m left again wondering how the hell did another whole month go by? You might not know this about me, but I’m the kind of guy who’s always looking for a silver lining. For instance, I had high hopes for my Stewartia, but when it died I told myself, “Well, now at least there’s room for a Disanthus.” Per usual, replacing an impossible plant with one that’s even worse. Blinders. I wear them as well as anybody. When the p...

The Month In Hardcore: November 2020

One guy has on boxing gloves. His Power Trip shirt is tucked into some gym shorts. I think there’s a mouthguard in his mouth. This is a few days before Halloween, so the whole ensemble is presumably a costume. But it’s functional, too. Because this guy is just out here punching the shit out of everyone. So is everyone else. It’s just a room full of motherfuckers whomping each other and then occasionally pausing for long enough to group-yell some lyrics about killing cops. The camera barely even ...

Chris Sullivan of ‘This Is Us’ talks new Joseph the Spouse album, filming during COVID-19

On TV,  Chris Sullivan plays a father to a son who is destined to become a future rock star, and a spouse to a wife who has quite a set of singing pipes herself. But off-screen, Sullivan, who plays Toby on “This is Us,” is also a country music singer. He performs as Joseph the Spouse, and his debut album of mostly mellow country songs with a positive upbeat vibe called “Six Feet From Under” will be released Nov. 19. “Right now I think it’s just easy music to connect with,” said the actor and mus...

Child's Play

A young mother was preparing breakfast for her two young sons--a five year-old and a three year-old. They were arguing over who would get the first pancake. The mother, trying to instill good morals in her sons, asked them to remember WWJD. She said that Jesus would say: "Let my brother have the first pancake." The 5 yr-old quickly turned to the 3 yr-old and said, "You play Jesus." Received from DD.
