Grow the courage to ask the question that everyone is thinking.

Here Comes the Son

Every year at this time, I scratch around in my bleak existence to locate a crumb of God’s goodness and proclaim that if God can align the molecules that create that crumb, surely he can come to earth as a human child and save me.

“Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” (Matthew 15:27)

But this year is different.

Easter vs. Christmas

It’s Easter again.  I do not feel ready. I am not ready.  I did not give up anything for lent.  If I live through tomorrow, I have met my goals:  survive the first quarter of 2018 and not pay any IRS penalties for underpayment on last year’s return.  Why do I spend eleven months preparing for Christmas but Easter, which should be the biggest holiday of my year, gets mashed in between second quarter report cards, spring break, and taxes?
