Why Does He Do It?

This morning Alaine and I walked around Phalen Lake.  The weather was almost perfect.  And the lake was full to overflowing after all the rain we've had lately.  

I like to walk on week days, early in the mornings.  The path isn't as crowded then.   

For the most part our walk was uneventful.  We didn't talk a lot.  We just enjoyed the scenery and the fresh air.  As we walked, we exchanged hellos with a few other hikers.  

We crossed paths with an unusual man.

A Harsh and Dreadful Thing

In his classic novel Brothers Karamazov, Feodor Dostoevsky tells the story of Father Zossima, a wise and humble Russian monk.

In the story people travel from nearby towns and villages, seeking the good Father's spiritual advice. One day a woman arrives at his cell to talk to him. She has a big problem, the woman explains.  Slowly, over the course of many years, she has lost her faith, and therefore, her reason to live.  Father Zossima must give her a reason to believe again, she says, or she will kill herself.

Have you ever known someone who prayed with passion and conviction?  Have you ever had the privilege of hearing someone put their heart and soul into their prayers?

Let God Be God

This morning I thought of a new message to put out on our church sign.  This might seem like a simple task, but it's not.  Let me explain. After all, what can you say that is meaningful and honest in ten words or less?
