A Calling Affirmed

Yesterday at Camp Christian, at the advanced conference program for young adults, the key note speaker talked about passion and calling.  While one can have a career that intersects with one’s passions and calling, for many one’s calling goes beyond a specific career. The key note speaker described passion and calling as something one does […]

Feeling a Tad Bit Salty…

Within the past year, a new phrase has introduced itself into my vocabulary. I’ve heard people say “Someone’s a bit salty…” over and over again. Baffling as the birth of this expression may seem, I want to take a minute to recognize that the Bible itself gives us permission to be salty. Understanding this expression […]

Courage to Embrace Equity

A few years ago, I made my first trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and stood in awe next to Lake Michigan. Even before that first visit, I had always been intrigued by the Great Lakes. Then, the natural wonder that I had only ever read about became a concrete, tangible reality exposing itself to all my senses. Moving forward […]

Spirit of Christmount

“I’m an old hippy…” said Rev. Jamie Brame as I gathered with the camp staff before campers arrived. While the week moved along, it became clear that a unique, earthly spirit was pouring out of him and into the fabric of camp life. Nestled in the mountains of North Carolina, Christmount has a natural beauty that revealed […]

Heaven is a Talent Show where Everyone Wins

Kids are funny. They will perform for you day in and day out, but when the time comes to actually get on stage, they are all shaky-legs and quiver-lips. I find this intriguing about youth: so much of their daily gestures can be categorized as entertainment. Their words often flow from their mouth like poetry. […]

Faith, Hope, and Love

One Bible verse that always struck a chord within me was 1 Corinthians 13:13, which reads: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” It’s a classic verse seen on paintings, bracelets, and read at thousands of weddings. Up until now, I have always agreed with it. […]

Between Om and Silence – July 8-12th with the Christian Church in Kansas CYF

This week was no exception to the amazing weeks of camp I’ve gotten to  visit this summer.  The campers were energetic, hopeful, intentional and loving.  We discovered how God does new things in our lives and world – the way Ze acts and speaks; listens and lives.  I am learning quickly that God speaks in […]

I Hope Jesus was Ugly

As a Christian, I am well-aware that Jesus was a different kind of King, that he helped liberate the oppressed and that he practiced unconditional love throughout his ministry. Jesus, in my opinion, is the best model for social activism we have. He was fearless and […]
