How To Live As The Church (Even When You Can’t Go To Church)

H

All across the country, churches have closed their doors. Two weeks ago, my church canceled all services until further notice. Since then, church has looked like sitting on the couch in front of my laptop. I’m thankful for the technology that enables me to continue hearing from my pastor, but there’s no denying it’s not the same. I miss my church family. I miss worshipping together. I even miss...

5 Ways to Use Your Time and 11 Things to Pray for During COVID-19

What If Sickness Keeps Me From Graduating?

It was four years ago, around this time of year. The flat was silent, empty. I had just arrived home from university. I didn’t even take my coat off. I just dropped my backpack, sank down on the floor, and cried my eyes out. It would be two more years before the doctors worked it out, and by that time I was resigned to how my life was changing–how it would have to change if my...

In the last couple weeks, you’ve probably found yourself with more time on your hands than you ever expected. Because in the midst of quarantines, lockdowns, and social distancing there are only so many video games and movies and books you can enjoy before you start feeling a little crazy with boredom. So if you’re one of those people that has said the phrase, “I’m bored” at any point over the...

Quarantine Could Be Devastating for Millions Around the World

Q

Thursday March 26. Seven days into total quarantine. I only have one news item today and then a conversation with a Rebelutionary from Ireland (some of you may recognize him as an old timer around the blog). I think it’s important to keep a perspective of what other’s are going through around the world. Even as we in America debate and argue about whether or not it’s right to...

It’s Wednesday, March 25. Fourteen days since the NBA suspended it’s seasons. 5 days since California Governor Newsom ordered a shelter-in-place and the rest of America began following suit. ICYMI Yesterday I instead of a news update, I did a video reading PSALM 23: ENCOURAGEMENT DURING COVID-19. Brett Harris published an article called 7 WAYS TO USE YOUR EXTRA TIME (THAT ARE ACTUALLY...

We can all relate to Frodo Baggins right now. With everything going on in the world, life seemingly cancelled, and dark and scary headlines from across the United States and Europe… We get a sense of what Frodo was feeling when he said: “I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.” But what does Gandalf say in response? “So do all who live to see such times; but...

Psalm 23: Encouragement During COVID-19

P

Are you feeling discouraged lately? You’re not alone. On top of everything being cancelled and the crazy news that is constantly streaming in, we’re also forced to isolate from friends and even family–primary sources of encouragement for many of us. Today I went for a walk and listened to Psalm 23 on repeat on the Dwell app (a Scripture audio app). It comforted me and filled me...
