Jonah and the God of Grace

I can't recall how many times I've sat down to study the book of Jonah, but I am confident of this: each time I read through those 48 captivating verses of narrative, the Lord grips my heart, exposes my rebellion, and draws me closer to his presence of mercy and forgiveness. I want you to walk with me, verse-by-verse, through the story of Jonah. I've broken the book up into 8 brief video lessons, and I've also created a Discussion Guide to help make this study as relevant as possible in your... Read More

Don't Wait Until Next Easter

I live in downtown Philadelphia, and when the Phillies won the World Series in 2008, the celebration was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Tens of thousands of people spilled into the streets late at night to celebrate the victory. Total strangers became best friends for hours as the city rejoiced in unison. A few days later, I walked down the very same street. It was different, shockingly different. I felt let down; to be honest, the drastic change was depressing for me. I wanted to see... Read More

A Horribly Beautiful Friday

At the center of a biblical worldview is this radical recognition: the most horrible thing that ever happened was the most beautiful thing to ever happen. As we reflect on Good Friday, we turn our somber attention to the bloody cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. Could it be possible for something to happen that was more terrible than this? Could any injustice be greater? Could any loss be more painful? Could any suffering be worse? The only man who ever lived a life that was perfect in every... Read More

Hungry For Love

I live in the city of Philadelphia, and one day I was eating at the Reading Terminal Market, a great American food emporium. Walking up and down the aisles debating over what I would enjoy most, I realized that I shared something in common with everyone else: we were all searching for something to satisfy the cravings of our stomach. Besides our hunger, though, the crowd didn't share many similarities. We came from a variety of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. We had different... Read More

Philosophers, musicians, poets, authors, and playwrights have tried to defined it for centuries, but each generation, unsatisfied with the answer, chases after love once again. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I... Read More
