Why We Go

[Editor’s Note: The following post is from a journal entry after a recent return trip to India, where Kennedy had served for two years.] Six years ago, I moved to South Asia. This week I returned. From the day I left to the day I returned, almost four years had passed. A lot had changed. […]

Let the Matchmaking Begin!

Who doesn’t enjoy a good love story? When it comes to love stories, I have a few rules. First of all, the boy and the girl have to get together in the end. Secondly, no one can die in my love stories. I have been known to turn off a movie just before tragedy strikes […]

Hope from a Stump

Last spring, we noticed something odd growing in the middle of our crape myrtle tree. This particular tree is on the side of our house where we hardly ever play or walk, so we hadn’t paid much attention to it in the 6 months we had lived here. If you know crape myrtles, you know […]

Stuck in the Routine of Daily Quiet Times?

Following Jesus requires discipline. We all know this and we all have more victorious seasons than others.  However, when we decide to follow Jesus with everything in our being we also often lean towards the legalistic bent of that calling upon our lives.  This especially takes place in the personal pursuit of deepening our relationship […]

Because Sunday’s Coming

On this Maundy Thursday, we pause to remember the Last Supper between Jesus and His disciples. Many around that table had no idea what the next 24 hours would bring.  But, I often wonder what was going through the hearts and minds of those who loved Jesus as they stood watching, possibly feeling hopeless and […]

The Fallacy of Fig Leaves

The Fallacy of Fig Leaves

The fallacy that fig leaves could cover the shame of sin deceives us all. We cannot cover our own sin. We cannot construct a garment of any design or any fabric that would cover sin and remove shame.
