  • Often times, verses are plucked from our holy text and quoted as sound bites to address complex and intimate human experiences. Our scripture for this week has one of those sound bites embedded in it. Trusting the Bible is not a weapon we'll take a look at Genesis 2 and listen again for what God deems good.

  • James' letter says clearly that faith without works is dead. He was speaking to a group that seemed to privilege those with wealth over those without. What does James say to us about our faith? Does your faith "work"? Does what you do reflect the faith you profess?

  • The Pharisees watched on as Jesus and his disciples sit down for a meal. They noticed some of the disciples didn't properly wash their hands according to the traditions of the elders and they pressed Jesus for an explanation. Jesus responds, "It's not about what goes in the body, pay attention to what comes out of the heart." How does your daily life reflect your living faith?

  • "Western Presbyterian... that's the church where there's a great mission with the homeless," said one of my new neighbors when I told him where I serve. As I read the psalm afterwards, describing the ancient temple as God's dwelling place, it dawned on me that when it comes to God, "home" looks different, that in some ways we are all homeless, and for some of us it's just more obvious. What might it mean for us to find our home in God? How does Western help you find your home?
