What Should We Do When the World’s Evil Makes Us Feel Sad, Angry, or Hopeless?

I don’t read most of the e-newsletters that show up in my email, but sometimes I do. Open Doors shares prayer requests and updates about persecuted Christians around the world, and Hope Outfitters partners with charities to donate all the money they make off clothing sales to a good cause. I’ll read their newsletters, and often when I do, I become angry and sad. When I read about Christians in Ind

I enjoyed reading this book after reading Relational Grace. So much of the historical context that Schmidt talked about in his book about grace is illustrated in these fictional letters between Antipas of Pergamum and the Apostle Luke. I always enjoy ...more

Relational Grace by Brent J. Schmidt

Schmidt's scholarship on the original meaning of charis (grace) in Greek and Roman literature, as well as early Judeo-Christian writings, is excellent. I found it fascinating to learn more about how Paul's use of charis fit-in with the way that word ...more

England in the 1860s was not a good place to find a husband. By the early part of the decade, there were about 600,000 more women there than men. When both employment and marriage options limited, 25-year-old Arabella Lawrence – a spinster in spite o ...more

This book raises some excellent points and can serve as an introduction to the topic of Christianity's Jewish roots. But while Landry has an incredible and inspiring story, I wasn't expecting it to take up nearly half the book nor for him to fill the ...more

“Participating in Christ” is exactly the sort of Christian non-fiction that I like to read. Michael J Gorman's careful, in-depth reading interprets Paul within the context of old testament scriptures, Paul's other writings, and his culture. Gorman's ...more

“As perfectionists and idealists, INFJs are constantly striving to make things better. Whether it's a relationship we're invested in, a person we care about, a project we're working on, or even a houseplant, INFJs won't give up until they've exhausted every possibility for improvement.”
Marissa Baker, The INFJ Handbook: A guide to and for the rarest Myers-Briggs personality type

“I find myself taking responsibility for everyone's emotions, even though they are not my burden to carry. I somehow feel that it is up to me to make them happy, because no one else will. If my loved ones are not happy, neither am I.”
Marissa Baker, The INFJ Handbook: A guide to and for the rarest Myers-Briggs personality type

“INFJs are often accused of pushing people away, even though we long for deep relationships with others.”
Marissa Baker, The INFJ Handbook: A guide to and for the rarest Myers-Briggs personality type

“Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion." "Ooh" said Susan. "I'd thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion"..."Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“She liked being reminded of butterflies. She remembered being six or seven and crying over the fates of the butterflies in her yard after learning that they lived for only a few days. Her mother had comforted her and told her not to be sad for the butterflies, that just because their lives were short didn't mean they were tragic. Watching them flying in the warm sun among the daisies in their garden, her mother had said to her, see, they have a beautiful life. Alice liked remembering that.”
Lisa Genova, Still Alice

“I tell of hearts and souls and dances...
Butterflies and second chances;
Desperate ones and dreamers bound,
Seeking life from barren ground,
Who suffer on in earthly fate
The bitter pain of agony hate,
Might but they stop and here forgive
Would break the bonds to breathe and live
And find that God in goodness brings
A chance for change, the hope of wings
To rest in Him, and self to die
And so become a butterfly.”
Karen Kingsbury, Oceans Apart

“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.”
Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
