Me and Papa: Thinking About God’s Feminine Side

Sometimes I refer to God as Papa, and if you’ve ever read William Paul Young’s The Shack then you already know what image this title brings to mind for me… I remember the first time I was chastised for not being “manly enough.” My grandma worked at a church-run daycare center in Covington, Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Another man from her church worked there as well. Let’s call him Brian (I do so because he and I are still friends… I don’t write this with any anger or...

Learning to Enjoy the Ride

Ihave always had a heart for God. However, it wasn’t until my freshman year of high school that I began to understand the need to have a personal experience with Him. I was into every activity the Church of God had to offer. VBS, youth retreats and church camp. Oh, church camp! That is where I really “Got it”. The altar services were deep and life changing. This is where I began to feel His presence in my life. Later on in my spiritual journey, I felt there was something more that I needed, I just couldn’t put my finger on it. I saw religious...

You’re Trying Too Hard

Why do we always try to make things so complicated? Life. Love. Faith. Our walk with God. Churchy terms like salvation and righteousness sometimes give us the impression that our day to day life requires special activity to achieve a harmonious existence: one where we’re living in reality in the here and now, at peace with our fellow human beings, and in touch with our God. But it’s really all very simple. And that’s how it’s supposed to be. Effortless. If you’re struggling with it, here’s a little message...

Resetting Your Most Important Relationship

Resetting Your Most Important Relationship

Relationships are probably the single most important thing in life. And they’re impossible unless the people in them know themselves and each other. Kinda basic, right? Okay, now without getting all churchy and religious, the single most important relationship you’ll ever have in your life is between you and God — because it affects everything: the way you see the world, how you view yourself, what gets you through difficulty and hard times, influences how we treat each, even how we live on this planet. How you see yourself...

Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin?

Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin?

I  doubt there is a Christian in America who hasn’t heard the almost credal aphorism, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.” One can scarcely have a discussion regarding homosexuality with a non-affirming believer without hearing it. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was somewhere in the Bible. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with the saying, it refers to people’s belief that God calls us to condemn (hate) the sin in people’s lives without hating those who are committing the sins. It attempts to make a distinction between sinners and the sins...
