online meanderings

A theatre called holy week - When God breaks into his own narrative, it's time to sit up and take notice.

Who will teach the women who want to be taught? - We need women who have been trained to teach others. "Brothers, they should not be a threat to you." Amen.

Why Christians should read fiction - Love this! (And see Christian fantasy - why it works, and why it doesn't work.)

My spouse doesn't meet my needs - The kind of expectations it's good to have of your spouse - and of yourself.

Why not to grumble about church in front of your kids - Love the way this post breaks into Bible.

Lessons from a year-long spending fast - Been there, done that, and found some of the same benefits.

In what areas do we need to find contentment? - A list that will search your heart.
When Jesus makes a trusting saint wait in pain, his reasons are only love. God only ordains his child's deep disappointment and profound suffering in order to give him or her far greater joy in the glory he is preparing to reveal (Romans 8:18). Before we know what Jesus is doing, circumstances can look all wrong. And we are tempted to interpret God’s apparent inaction as unloving, when in fact God is loving us in the most profound way he possibly can. So in your anguish of soul, hear Jesus ask with strong affection, “Do you believe this?” Jon Bloom
