"This summer, American history lies on the examining table. Each Founding Father, famous activist, and each new death in a newspaper receives scrutiny: hero or villain? Narratives shape our fundamental concept of our nation, our government, and ourselves, and, in this moment, many people try to understand if their perception of these things has been honest or biased in some way over the course of their formative years."
"We are not living in some hellish landscape. We are people on a pilgrimage to heaven. Each nuance of social distancing, inter-racial dialog, and political positioning has to begin with questions that keep us centered on our identity and on our goal."
"God is always at work mending our world, even when we struggle to see with the eyes of hope. He lives an eternal Easter, even when we feel stuck in a perpetual Holy Saturday."
As I watch my children grow, I have realized that God frequently gives us more than one Mount Tabor moment in our lives. There are “mini-Tabors” just as there are “mini-Calvaries.”
