Holding the Vigil

When you’ve been living in a Good Friday kind of life for the last several years, Holy Week can be so helpful. And sometimes it is all too tempting to stay in the darkness even when God is offering over and over peace and serenity. Listen to discover where Jesus stands on this issue.

Focusing on Joy

This day prepares us for the most important festival as the church. Easter is so important to us because we celebrate Jesus rewriting our fear, rewriting the story of our pain and our anguish – because our lives are often more filled with pain, fear, angst, stress, and anger. And Jesus came to rewrite those stories so that we can embrace something new (that is as old as it gets): God’s love for us. And nothing can keep us from the love of God – not even death.

The Older Son: When We Actually Need More Than We’re Getting

Jesus’ story of the Prodigal Son may not just be about God’s lavish welcome of the son who goes and squanders his life… but also about those of us who have lived by the rules.

It is true that God lavishes love on everyone who turns to him – those who have thus far squandered their lives, as well as those who have sacrificed in order to do what is right by others.

But the story of the other brother in the Prodigal Son is that we need to ask for what we want, when we want and need it. Jesus gives us permission to ask for help, permission to ask for celebration and love.
