So, what? Is Jesus’ resurrection changing your life today?
Church, this is the Good News. Jesus is alive and there are witnesses. Mary has seen the Lord outside the tomb. Can’t you just see the other disciples scratching their heads inside the tomb? They had heard Jesus say many times that he would die and be raised to life, but they didn’t take him […]
We started today with the waving of palm branches and cheering for Jesus as he rides in on a donkey. The crowds who shouted Hosanna didn’t last long when Jesus didn’t flex his power and call those angel armies. Their Hosannas turned all too easily to shouts of “Crucify Him!”

None of us makes the best decisions when we are wiped out, starving and at our weakest. Yet every time the devil tempted Jesus to break his fast and his reliance upon God and provide for himself or test God’s promises Jesus pulled from the reserves, the sustenance of Scripture to stand his ground.
Today is Transfiguration Sunday. In the flow of the Christian Year we always take time before the beginning of Lent to reflect on the time that Jesus went up the mountain and became radiant with the glory of God. There are many good reasons that we do this, but my favorite way to frame it […]
