The Social Gospel According to the Woman at the Well

A year ago, I was able to travel with a couple of colleagues to Flint, Michigan, to distribute water in response to the water crisis. I never realized the necessity of water until educating myself about the crisis. The residents of Flint were only allotted one case of water per person every day at the water distribution area at the fire station.

The Strawberry Letter

One of the things I miss about living in Michigan is being able to pick strawberries in the summer. I’d always wanted to go, but I wanted to go with my friends. However, God insisted that I go picking on my own. Let the record show, I am addicted to strawberries: strawberry ice cream, cupcakes, smoothies, lemonade, yogurt, cheesecake, candy, you name it. As I was doing my picking, I was amazed to see how strawberries were grown—it was awesome! I was able to see the tiniest berries to the largest berry of the bunch.

Inside Out Worship

As a minister, one of the questions that tends to flutter through my mind is the credibility of my worship, public and private. I am wondering if what I call an act of worship reflects my personal worship experience. Lately, I am beginning to realize the importance of having an authentic personal relationship with God in relation to the meaning of worship. The more I continue my journey back to the heart of worship, the more I understand the importance of making it part of a lifestyle and not just a Sabbath morning service.
