RHYTHM: Old Salt – Luke 14

Proper 4 luke 14Wednesday before Proper 4: Luke 14:34-35

Reading: Luke 14:34-35

Old Salt

If you don’t play Minecraft, you’re missing out.

I got into it like most adults—my kids were into it. Having grown up with video games considered a present evil of our times and become an adult to witness that « Continue »

RHYTHM: Thanks, Coach – 1 Corinthians 16

Tuesday before Proper 4: 1 Corinthians 16:13-24 Reading: 1 Corinthians 16:13-24 Thanks, Coach In the worst sports movie you’ve ever seen, there’s this most-obvious-advice moment near the end where the coach says one last meaningful thing to the kid who’s about to go out on the field/court/pitch/whatever to win whatever

RHYTHM: This Seat Taken? – Psalm 1

Monday before Proper 4: Psalm 1 Reading: Psalm 1 This Seat Taken? The seat of scoffers. This always made me think of the armchair quarterback, barking ideas at a deaf screen. Really, anyone who would offer unsolicited or generally negative advice. The backseat driver. Other hack golfers trying to tell

RHYTHM: Spirit of Truth – John 16

Trinity Sunday: John 16:12-15 Reading: John 16:12-15 Spirit of Truth We’ve been talking all week about the Holy Spirit. It is, after all, Trinity Sunday, so it seems appropriate to bring it up. I’m of the distinct opinion that we should bring it up more often. We feel like we’ve

RHYTHM: Pass It Down – Proverbs 4

Saturday before Trinity Sunday: Proverbs 4:1-9 Reading: Proverbs 4:1-9 Pass It Down Being a parent is a drag. Not because of the kids. The kids are pretty great most of the time. And when they’re not, it’s usually just because they’re kids. They’re still learning how to be. Which

RHYTHM: Unity – Ephesians 4

Friday before Trinity Sunday: Ephesians 4:1-6 Reading: Ephesians 4:1-6 Unity Nice try, Paul, but that sounds impossible. Unity is not our friend. We live in such an individualist world that we’re preconditioned to see most things as against us if they’re not immediately and obviously for us. My office has

RHYTHM: Help Me Understand – Proverbs 3

Thursday before Trinity Sunday: Proverbs 3:13-18 Reading: Proverbs 3:13-18 Help Me Understand We were preparing for a fall retreat a few years ago. The theme was “Kingdom Come,” talking about what the true realization of God’s kingdom on earth would look like. Because we’ve still got that all screwed up.

RHYTHM: God Comes – Luke 1

Wednesday before Trinity Sunday: Luke 1:26-38 Reading: Luke 1:26-38 God Comes Merry Christmas! Oh, wait a minute, it’s nearly June. Why is Jesus being born again? See, you missed it too. This isn’t about Jesus. We’re heading into the often neglected Trinity Sunday, the last gasp of fun lectionary Sundays

RHYTHM: Hearing – 1 Corinthians 2

Tuesday before Trinity Sunday: 1 Corinthians 2:12-16 Reading: 1 Corinthians 2:12-16 Hearing the Spirit We don’t take the Holy Spirit seriously enough. Most of the time we act as though God has stopped speaking into our world. Somehow when we closed the canon of scripture we started acting like we’d

RHYTHM: Dry and Weary Land – Joel 2

Monday before Trinity Sunday: Joel 2:18-29 Reading: Joel 2:18-29 Dry and Weary Land There’s nothing quite like the feeling of restoration. I’m reminded of a thousand things as I read through this passage in Joel 2. The need to be restored puts me in mind of a time when I

RHYTHM: The Advocate – John 14

Pentecost: John 14:8-17 (25-27) Reading: John 14:8-17 (25-27) The Advocate Everybody does the wind and the tongues of flame bit on Pentecost. Let’s take the road less traveled. The story in John 14 echoes some of Jesus’ other what-did-I-just-say moments with the disciples. Jesus says, “If you know me, you

RHYTHM: When God Shows Up – Luke 1

Saturday before Pentecost: Luke 1:5-17 Reading: Luke 1:5-17 When God Shows Up Somehow we never expect for God to show up. I mean seriously. How disrupting would it be to the way we do church if God was actually present? Which one of those announcements would still make the cut?

RHYTHM: Weather, or Not? – Psalm 104

Friday before Pentecost: Psalm 104:24-34 Reading: Psalm 104:24-34 Weather, or Not? On Monday we talked about some of the beauty that can be found in the calamities of nature. In today’s reading in Psalm 104, the psalmists joins that line of thinking, rejoicing in some of the incomprehensible terrors of
