A Love Letter to Millennials

Dear Millennial, You are feared above all else (at least until the next generation has more purchasing power), and are more mysterious to the previous generations than the ocean floor. You have no time bullshit, and all the time for beauty. Apparently, that’s a problem. I know, I am frustrated, too. You were raised not […]

None of this went as planned

We have turned our eyes to carefully track the steps of Jesus all week. We watched as the crowd cheered and gawked at his ironic, and somehow still triumphant entrance in to the city. The crowd shouted “Hosanna! Save us!” and we too, echo their cry in our own ways every day, “Jesus, save us…” […]

Did You Forget?

He’s exactly what you would expect of a 6th grade boy. High energy, an alternately charming and maddening blend of extreme silliness and budding sarcasm, an affinity for jokes involving rude body noises and a distaste for homework. He can be tough, he puts effort in to his “devil may care” demeanor. Tried to cover […]

Spiritual Selective Hearing

When I was a child, I was plagued with this disorder that my mother liked to call “selective hearing.” Perhaps you’ve experienced this as well: whenever mom would call that dinner was ready or say something like, “Hey Megan, I’m going to run some errands at the mall, do you want to come?” I would […]
