WITH NO FOOD IN SIGHT…
“November. A month of cool nights and brisk days. Of athletic and political contests. Gathering and celebrations. The harvest month. The month of Thanksgiving.
But what do we do when our festivities are hampered by hardships, and the joy that feeds our hearts has been drained without a morsel of relief?
How can we learn to give thanks in all circumstances, as Paul urges in 1 Thessalonians, when circumstances are disappointing at best or at worst, too painful to bear?”

WHEN LIFE FALLS AWAY…
“It’s that time of year again. Crisp air and cool breezes. Sweaters and hot chocolate. Trees ablaze with deepening hues.
But what do we do when the warmth of autumn fades and the last leaf falls away, leaving us bare and bereft?”

WHEN THE WORLD SEEMS DARK…
“We’re a year and a half into the pandemic and the headlines have not improved.
At this point, many of us are wondering how much more the world can take. How much longer our economy and infrastructure can hold up against wave after wave of bleakness, division, and loss.
But no matter what the latest media report says, there is good news for all of us, even in a world we barely recognize…”

WHEN YOU’RE SCARED OF FAILING…
“For many states across the country, August means another “back to school” season… teeming with excitement — and anxiety.
But whether we are anxious about our ability to excel in school or any other venture, it’s helpful to remember the true source of success, even when the world tries to convince us we’ve failed…”

WHEN YOUR FEEL WEIGHED DOWN…
“Whether it is the chains of government tyranny, current events, secular pressures, personal trials, or sin itself, we can all relate to feeling weighed down by a world seeking to do anything but set us free.
As we celebrate another anniversary of political freedom in our country and the sacrifices it required, it is also a tremendous opportunity to consider the freedom that awaits us in the kingdom of heaven.
A chance to turn our steps away from the pitfalls that keep us from our true purpose and highest calling…”

EVEN IF YOU’RE USED TO HIDING…
“As a new season of re-gathering and re-opening has begun after a long year, it’s easy to feel a little unsure as we ease our way back into the world we have been hiding from for so long.
But if we re-frame our thinking about this time of transition from venturing out into unfamiliar territory to exploring new opportunities, it’s amazing how much more welcoming the world can start to feel…”

WHEN YOU CAN’T CATCH A BREAK…
“Even without masks in the mix, the pandemic hasn’t given us many chances to catch our breath.
But through the eye of this very long and seemingly never-ending storm, God is giving us an incredible opportunity to strengthen our spiritual arsenal, and one of the most powerful gifts He is helping us develop is the gift of grace…”

WHEN YOUR FEET ARE DRAGGING…
We’ve been out of step for a while now. Over a year in fact.
A year without gatherings and festivities. A year without opportunities to comfort and celebrate. A year without each other.
And as true re-opening buds with the spring, it’s not easy to imagine what the next steps should be…

WHEN THEY’VE THROWN AWAY THE KEY…
Even without a global pandemic, it can feel like the world is swallowing us up.
And during Holy Week, as Christians begin to cycle through the complicated emotions accompanying history’s most confounding course of events, it’s easy to find ourselves asking, “Why?”
