  • We hear the term 'idol' and we think that we don't worship those - we don't worship golden calves. But, what are our functional idols or icons? What do you make sacrifices to and for?

  • Our daily lives are wrought with decisions to make - what to eat for breakfast; where to go for lunch; how to prioritize the 'to do' when there's not enough time to do it all; how to respond to hurt feelings or how we behave when we meet someone who is different from us. And, each day, we have a decision to make - who is the God we will follow today? Is it a hopeful God?

  • What comes to mind when you hear the word "servant"? For Downton Abbey fans, it's probably someone in a black uniform with a white apron. Feminists have critiqued the idea of "servant" as a model of faith, saying it encourages subservience. But Christian faith points to something more when it comes to serving. On this All Saints' Day, we'll consider the servants whose faith has shaped our own serving.

  • Scripture tells us that when David regained the ark of the covenant from his Philistine enemies, he led it in a dancing procession all the way back to his capital city. But scripture does not tell us whether he was truly praising God, or rather marching in an ancient near eastern ritual dance playing a mythic victor. Was David an admirable leader or a self-promoting conqueror? What can we learn from him and from the response of his wife Michal as we both use and respond to leadership today?
