I heard a sermon yesterday about suffering and God’s response and reaction to it. The text was the death and raising of Lazarus.

As much as this may be the case, however, something bigger than Lazarus … More Suffering and Something Bigger.
I’ve never had a growth spurt in the entire course of my life. I stared out about 18″ long and gradually inched my way up (by units of measure smaller than inches; inches would have constituted a growth spurt, after all) to my adult height of 5’2″. The rest of my life seems to inch … More Timing is Everything. (Or, how my mind hopped from timing to individualism to the communal consequences of sin).
