Even the Winds and Waves Obey Him

By Kelly Wright Even the Winds and Waves Obey Him Holding on through the Storm I hate storms. Recently I watched as Hurricane Ida ripped through Louisiana, eerily on the anniversary of Katrina. I have a friend who just moved to that area and lives in the path of the storm. She posted, “we have hurricane snacks and plenty of water, we’ve battened down the hatches and now are waiting…

You Got Served

By Matt Gordon I have a new favorite server. She is my favorite server because you can’t say “waitress” anymore and because she is totally nuts. I’ve had the honor of being served by her thrice, and, boy, was it a lot of serving. On the first occasion, she took our drink orders, and then asked if we had questions about the menu. “No,” my friend and I replied. To…

Fasting

By Brock Bondurant Luke 4:1-4 – 1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit… was led by the Spirit into the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him,…

A Waking Dream Come True

By Matt Gordon Yesterday I witnessed an amazing spectacle. Years ago my entire company stopped everything to watch an especially noteworthy eclipse. I’ve stood on the rim of the Grand Canyon and peered out from Alpine peaks. Rivers and valleys in several continents, I’ve looked on in wonder. I saw James Cameron’s Avatar in 3D. But what I saw yesterday dwarfed these phenomena. My three year old son was sleeping,…

Taking Offense . . . Wisely

By Matt Gordon I read an article this week about a group of people who were offended about something. That is a vague sentence because by the article’s finale, I was no clearer on why there was offense or what solutions were being offered to bring a reconciliation than I was at the onset. The whole spat was senseless. This experience stood out to me because it happens in our…

Cancel Altogether

By Matt Gordon That’s it. I’m just sick of wrestling with all of it. The masks, the mandates, the sickness, the variants, sugar-free gelatins. Most of these have to do with the pandemic. The other one has to do with the sensation of getting a chilled cup of gelatin and taking a big spoonful only to be woefully letdown by the lack of flavor surge. It is like kissing a…

The Drug of Envy

By Matt Gordon Recently, I had a conversation with a person struggling with drugs. This person had grown tired of rock bottom and was ready to live a better story. I asked how the person knew it was time to make a change. His answer came promptly: “I just can’t keep this up. It is destroying me.” Those words are profound, yet there is a simplicity to the diagnostic. It…
