Our Bible reading today from the Gospel of Matthew suggests that Jesus was taking a step-back moment in his life and ministry. A pause. A time of evaluation.
He had been traveling with the disciples. Teaching. Listening. Reaching out to people. A divine energy was being released into the world through him. An energy that included passion for justice. Healing and compassion for all people. Acceptance for the unacceptable. Yes, something special was happening in the life of Jesus. Yet even when good things are happening, it's important, if not essential, to step back every now and then ask: What is really happening? Where have I been? Where do I want to go?

Watch part 3 of an 8-part series that helps participants communicate more honestly with each other, and with God, by showing a wide range prayerful response to life’s triumphs and tragedies. In part 3, guest Rolf Jacobson discusses Psalm 112.

If it is true that we are what we eat, then Christ-followers ought to take a long, hard look at the kinds of things we are putting into our bodies. Paul’s words to the Christ-followers in Rome offer us some food for thought (pardon the pun; couldn’t help myself).
The Shawshank Redemption is at the top of my all-time great movies list. It is punctuated with great lines and saturated with rich spiritual symbolism. The warden, Samuel Norton, is an icon of toxic Christianity.
The Trinity is confusing. We usually say Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, but sometimes you hear Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer; or Almighty God, Incarnate Word, and Holy Comforter. I heard this one recently—Womb of Life, Word in Flesh, Brooding Spirit. This may become your new favorite: Primordial Nature, Consequent Nature, and Superjective Nature.
In light of this week's events in Ferguson, Missouri, several of our ON Scripture writers took a few moments to reflect upon what they would/will be preaching on this Sunday.
