A Tale of Stained Hands

Once there was a girl. One day, she sinned. But it was only a little sin. Yet, she noticed that after she sinned, she ended up with a drop of red that stained the skin of her hands. The next time she sinned, another small drop of red stained her skin. And another. And another. […]

How Much of Jesus Do We Want?

This past Sunday I got to share the Lord’s Supper with my church family. I always enjoy this time, but there was something different about this one. Instead of quiet contemplation and examination, I was more distracted by my oldest daughter’s presence. I was keenly aware of her movements and especially her questions. I decided […]

Good Friday Reflections

In the beginning was the Word. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1,14) In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son […]

The Futility of A False Religion

Over Spring Break I had the opportunity to visit a country in South Asia, a country brimming with kind people, a rich history, and many beautiful cultural traditions. However, during the trip, I got to observe men and women practicing Hinduism, and I was struck by the absolute futility of it. My heart broke for […]

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 […]

Come Back, Weary Wanderer

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been in multiple conversations with weary and wounded friends who have called it quits. Whether past or present, they’ve reached the point where their life’s circumstances have proven too broken and painful, their walk with Jesus too difficult and illusive to endure, their sin too enticing, and their faith […]

The World Outside My Doorstep

Today, I went walking through a store. I passed two men arguing in Hindi. I walked beside a group of students chatting in some language I didn’t understand. I ran into a woman wearing a churidar kameez. Where was I, you ask? …Kroger in Fort Worth, TX.

Stuck in the Routine of Daily Quiet Times?

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 […]
