Daily Devotional Archive

  • Sometimes we do too much. Sometimes we do too little. When Covid-19 is but a faint memory, I wonder what story we will tell about ourselves.

  • This is not the moment, if there ever was one, to prove anything to anyone. It’s a time to be real, and to let that be the good thing it is.

  • If rest is so holy and if God has rested since the dawn of Creation, should I worry that God will sleep through my own storms and ignore my pleas for help?

  • Christianity has little to do with being a good person. The essence of the Christian faith is this: God loves us not because we are good but because God is good.

  • We need God’s PPE right now. To be clothed with the power of God’s love that overcomes despair. And clothed with the power of God’s peace that calms our anxious spirits.

  • What would the founders of your church say about the living waters God and your pastors are pouring through your screen each week despite the shuttered sanctuary?

  • There are so many times I want God to just hand over my problems and let me figure out a solution. So many of us share the kryptonite of the “just let me do it” spirit.

  • Rather than claiming we’re in the same boat, the gospel tells me to find out about my neighbor’s boat. Seek to understand their experience of this storm.

  • We’re right always to insist on hope. But maybe not so reflexively, maybe not so fast. F Faith isn’t faith if it marches us straight to glory without passing despair.

  • Friends, it’s bad these days – for a lot of reasons. Many of us feel unprepared. Instability is on public display. Keep holding on to love. Remember that you’re not alone.
