During this season of Lent—a time to engage with our own mortality, practice self-examination, and spend time with God—Christians around the world meditate on Jesus’ journey from life to death and from death to resurrection.

I’ve always wrestled with the story of the prodigal son. I think it’s because I always saw this as one of the most definitively human stories the Bible offers: humankind’s return from exile.

We all need food, water, shelter, Read more
I often think about all the people who have made a positive impact on the world through their words, actions, courage, and big hearts. I think about how they started their journeys alone or with a few people who believed in their vision. I think about how their journeys remained difficult, but they continued to move forward on their paths to spread peace, love, equality, and justice to the people around them.
I think about how Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and his family Read more
Throughout my life, the Lord has led me from fear, confusion, drug addiction, and jail. The Lord led me out of homelessness and into housing, from being lost spiritually to the salvation I have found at Trinity’s 12:05 service. God led me from devious people to priests, sisters, and humanitarians. The blessings the Lord bestows on me are endless.
When I was young, I felt the warm comforting love from my parents, Read more
