Palm Sunday

What would it have been like to be part of the fickle crowd around Jesus?  I have often reflected on how I would have reacted to the major shift in thinking.  One week the people are praising Jesus as the Messiah.  The next week they had Him on a cross.  Am I like that, I wonder?  Do I change that …

Living in the Moment

I recently read a book called, “Coming Home to Your True Self: Leaving the Emptiness of False Attractions” by Albert Haase.  What an amazing work this is!  I highly recommend it!  The author truly captures the struggle that we, as fallen people, have as we try to connect with God.  The following is my take-away from reading it, but I …

My True Self

I need a homecoming.  Do you ever feel like you’ve wondered away from your true Home?  I’m currently reading a book by Albert Haase called “Coming Home to Your True Self: Leaving the Emptiness of False Attractions.”  I am both encouraged and discouraged.  I am so often allured by the false attractions that I miss the authentic nature of my …
