  • You


    “I want you to let go.” You. Me. You talking to me? I knew it. But what are you trying to say? Who do you think I am? I remember one of the first times that I was embarrassed that I didn’t know something. It was February and I was in the second grade. White […]

  • Want


    “I want you to let go.” These are the words said to me. It was a dream, but not a dream. “Want” There are deep desires within all of us that drive our search for meaning. If you are reading these words–you were born with desire and want inside of you. You have been pushing the […]

  • I


    “I want you to let go.” These are the words said to me. It was a dream, but not a dream. “I” I wish I could look up and see the face that said those words to me and be able to articulate all of the words that went unsaid in the movement that followed. […]

  • Yield


    “I want you to let go.” I did not let go because I was rejected — I let go because I trusted the voice. The obedient release of my grip allowed me to be pulled towards something greater. I have learned to be still and let go if I want to see where I am being pulled. This Lenten season […]

    Short Post: NoFBNov

    No Facebook November is about leaning into life and seeing the invisible. What will I see if I keep looking up? This is the kind of fast day I’m after:     to break the chains of injustice,     get rid of exploitation in the workplace,     free the oppressed,     cancel debts. What I’m interested in seeing you do […]

    No Facebook November 2015

    I’ve rewritten the first sentence of this blog post four times…Despite being pulled out of bed to write with a heart pounding full of purpose, I still have an incessant compulsion to edit and perfect the words that you, my reader, will see. I haven’t been able to write in a long time. The creative constipation […]

    No More

    No more crying there we are going to see the King, no more crying there, we are going to see the King…beneath the tabernacle the voices of the men’s choir carried God’s promise to the ears of His children who gathered together for the sixth night of the 172nd annual Lake Creek Campmeeting. My son, […]

    Forgiveness Blooms

    My four year old son, Desmond, told me that he would say the prayer for our lunch. He said he was “going to do the one we do at church with fire”. I raised my eyebrows and then bowed my head with him.  He started into the Lord’s Prayer with child-like accuracy and then came […]

    Miracle Zip at the Chef’s Table

    I was a little kid once…my parents would motivate me to eat by letting me know that I won’t grow unless I eat. Despite the assumed correlation between eating and growing, I haven’t grown an inch taller since I was 12. My mom thinks it might have something to do with my experiment with vegetarianism…I think it mostly […]
