Inspiration & Devotionals :: Daily Manna from the Net for Friday, November
2007-11-30 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Daily Manna from the Net for Friday , November 30, 2007Posted: Fri Nov 30, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. Hebrews 10:32-35 NIV Listen (MP3) Read more...

Inspiration & Devotionals :: A Story that Centers
2007-11-30 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: A Story that CentersPosted: Fri Nov 30, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) There is a vacuum at the heart of our culture. Saul Bellow argued in his 1976 Noble Laureate lecture: "The intelligent public is waiting to hear from art what it does not hear from theology, philosophy, and social theory and what it cannot hear from pure science: a broader, fuller, more coherent, more comprehensive account of what we human beings are, who we are, and what this life is for. If writers do not come into the center, it will not be because the center is pre-empted; it is not." Very simply stated, there is no center to hold things together. Or to put it differently, there is no over-arching story to life by which all the particulars can be interpreted. The pursuit of knowledge without knowing who we are or why we exist, combined with a war on our imaginations by our entertainment industry, leaves us at the mercy of power with no morality. May I illustrate this? On ...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Daily Manna from the Net for Thursday , November 29, 2007Posted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, 'So shall your offspring be.' Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead--since he was about a hundred years old--and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.

Inspiration & Devotionals :: On the Threshold
2007-11-29 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: On the ThresholdPosted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) The "doorknob phenomenon" is an occurrence many physicians know well. Doctors can proceed meticulously through complete examinations and medical histories, taking care to hear a patient's questions and concerns, but it is often in the last thirty seconds of the appointment that the most helpful information is revealed. When a doctor's hand is on the doorknob, body halfway out the door, vital inquiries seem to be made; when a patient is nearly outside the office, crucial information is shared almost in passing. Many have speculated as to the reasons behind the doorknob phenomenon (which is perhaps not limited to the field of medicine), though a cure seems unlikely. Until then, words uttered on the threshold remain a valuable entity to the physician. If I were to speak on behalf of patients (and perhaps I've been a perpetrator of the phenomenon myself), I would note ...

Inspiration & Devotionals :: Christ, the King
2007-11-29 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Christ , the King Posted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) If you are part of a church that journeys through the liturgical church year, then you'll be aware that this past Sunday, November 25 was the Sunday of Christ, the King. This special Sunday marks the beginning of the end of the church year for it hails the end of the season of Pentecost (Ordinary Time), and inaugurates the Advent Season that culminates on Christmas Day. The day celebrates and reminds us of Christ's kingship over all creation, as well as reminds us that all humanity will one day submit to Christ's rule. Through hymns, Scripture readings, and prayers, the day encapsulates Paul's words to the Philippians: "God highly exalted him, and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Why Christian ?Posted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) "Why Christian?" was a question put before Professor Douglas John Hall by one of the many students who discover themselves in his office asking more about the theology he teaches. It's possible this question was asked rhetorically, maybe even a bit sarcastically, like those near Jesus who threw questions more like daggers than candid inquiries. It's also possible the student just wanted to hear an honest explanation: In a world of so many spiritual options, in a world of reasons to reject religion altogether, "Why Christianity?" Regardless of tone or motive, the seasoned professor of theology decided to answer the question, laying aside the responses that must come automatically after so many years to really give an answer. "I confess, I [am answering] as much for myself as for you," he writes. "You made me realize that after all these years I needed...

Inspiration & Devotionals :: This Different Night
2007-11-24 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: This Diff erent Night Posted: Sat Nov 24, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) Before the miraculous events at the Red sea even took place, God instructed Moses to tell the Israelites that they were in the makings of what would become a festival. To a people yet bound in slavery, God commanded them to celebrate forever the things that were about to take place, adding, "Then your children will ask, 'What does all this mean? What is this ceremony about?' And you will reply, 'It is the celebration of the LORD's Passover, for he passed over the homes of the Israelites in Egypt'" (Exodus 12:26-27a). Today the Jewish Passover continues to be a celebration of remembrance. There is also a tradition within the ritual in keeping with the inquisitive children God described. The youngest child at the table asks aloud, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" The question is then answered in the telling of the events of th...

2007-11-24 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Sacred Debt Posted: Sat Nov 24, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) "Pay every debt as if God wrote the bill." So goes the counsel of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and his advice is worth contemplating. Do you feel pressure to reciprocate when someone treats you to lunch? Do you find yourself repaying kindness for kindness, compliment for compliment, and so on? You are far from alone if you do. According to sociologists, this sense of obligation, which they refer to as the "Rule of Reciprocation," is present in every single known human society, and this rule is as powerful as it is prevalent. Professor of psychology Robert Cialdini notes, "So typical is it for indebtedness to accompany the receipt of [favors, gifts, and the like] that a phrase like 'much obliged' has become a synonym for 'thank you.'"(1) The implications of that etymological statement perhaps unveil our haste in responding to debt. Indebtedness is unc...

No doubt, we will have our fill of Lowcountry barbeque, chicken purlo, cornbread dressing, and sweet potato pie. Then my cousin will walk us through the cemetery across the road where generations of our family are buried and tell us their stories. As children, my brother and I counted on our father to rehearse tales of the living as we made the drive to the reunion. We remembered most of their names and faces (with namesakes like Tootsie, Bubber, and Sissy they are hard to forget!), but sometimes could not recollect our relationship to them. Amazingly, my father never sat down to diagram our family tree, yet with a photo or letter in hand, he could recall each distant cousin, great-great aunt or uncle all the way...

2007-11-15 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Ultimate Diet Posted: Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) Some years ago, a group of young boys discovered a bird nest with a couple of baby birds inside. When the boys touched the nest, the birds stretched their feeble feet to their fullest heights, balancing their heads on their wobbly necks, alternating methodically between chirping expectantly and holding their mouths wide open. Apparently, a touch of the nest had, up to this point, meant that their mother had returned with food. Unfortunately, there was no trace of motherly instincts in these boys, a fact promptly confirmed by the actions of one of them. He picked up a handful of dirt and emptied it into the mouths of the birds. The recklessness of the actions perpetrated by the boys and the appalling consequences in this story are easy to spot. But there is a parallel habit that is all too common in many of our churches, and much of the time it goes unnoticed. Easily stated, the problem i...

2007-11-15 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Bridges of Memory Posted: Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) The word "souvenir" comes from the French word meaning "to remember." Browsing through crowded airport souvenir shops or overstuffed booths of t-shirts in tourist-likely places, it is hard to remember the almost romantic origins of the word. A fuzzy magnet bearing the words of my latest destination may serve to remind me of a another land, but I still feel like I've sold myself out as the prototypical, easily-targeted, junk-buying tourist any time I leave a souvenir shop receipt in hand. Creators of a souvenir shop in Buchenwald, Germany, claim, though controversially, to be bearing the less-materialistic origins of the word. The shop opened in time for the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Buchenwald concentration camp where an estimated 56,000 people were murdered at the hands of the Nazis. Their souvenirs range from plaques embedded with stones fr...

Inspiration & Devotionals :: The Substance of Faith
2007-11-15 10:00:00
Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Subs tance of Faith Posted: Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) In a world of chaos, faith is the anchor that secures and keeps the believer from drifting off-course. In the book of Hebrews, faith and endurance go hand in hand, for endurance proves faith, and faith supports endurance. But how, exactly, does faith support endurance and keep us on course in turbulent times? The author of Hebrews grounds faith in the "assurance of things hoped for." The text imparts, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). The early Christians who received this letter were undergoing tremendous suffering and persecution, and the author reminds them that faith is assurance even in the midst of trouble. But how is the "assurance in things hoped for," a support for enduring faith? The assurance of all we hope for as Christians is not merely wishful thinking about a yet to be d...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Things of GodPosted: Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) There is a part of me that feels the twinge of being scolded whenever my name is spoken to me. "Jill, what are you doing?" "Hurry, Jill, we need to go." (Perhaps those of us that share this idiosyncrasy got in trouble a lot as kids.) But I have often wondered how Peter felt when Jesus's scathing rebuke confronted not "Peter," which would have yet had its sting, but "Satan." In those days, Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and teachers of the law. He began to explain to those who loved him that he would be put to death. Peter, like most of us reacting to the suffering of our loved ones, swore to protect him. "Never, Lord!" he said. "This shall never happen to you!" I can only imagine his shock at Jesus's response. Je...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Public , the Private , and the PracticalPosted: Thu Nov 15, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) There is no mistaking the presence of unique challenges to the life and mindset of the modern day Christian. Our secularist, privatized, consumerist worldview has wielded a religion (indeed many religions) that has little or nothing to do with life itself. Coupled with secularism's privatizing of religion from the public realm, consumerism's pull creates a context whereby the choice of belief is not only a personal matter, but a matter entirely divorced from the history and communities that inform these beliefs. As David Wells notes, "God has been evacuated from the center of our collective life, pushed to the edges of our public square to become an irrelevance to how our world does its business. Marxism rested on a theoretical atheism; our secularized world rests on a practical atheism in the public domain, though one that coexists with private religio...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Isn't the Bible Sexist?Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) There is a widespread belief around about the Bible that it is some kind of powerful patriarchal conspiracy which has been used to oppress women. As a female speaker I find that this question is frequently asked: "How can you as a woman promote such a sexist book? The church has tried to keep women down!" As Christians we need to be sensitive to the issues which underlie such an emotive question. While it may indeed seem to be the case that women have been discriminated against by religion, the Bible itself deserves closer examination on the subject. How is it that many of the greatest Jewish and Christian pioneers have been women? What does the Bible really say about this subject?(1) Throughout the Bible there are numerous positive images of women and stories that involve women. In the Old Testament women share the image of God at creation. At the end of time at the ...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Privilege of Pluralism?Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) One is never more aware of pluralism's sticky presence then when sitting in a round table discussion about faith. Like a wad of well-chewed gum that has been stepped in again and again, the strings of religious thought and life are many, and often messy, sticking to our souls at times unbeknownst and unannounced. In the end, the sticky web is not only hard to identify for what it once was, but everyone feels polluted by it. On a bad day, this is my hopeless image of the pluralistic world around me. In this picture, pluralism is far more than a mere plurality of options, but an intricate mesh of amalgamating outlooks, ideas, objectives, and practices. Our current cultural landscape takes on both kinds of pluralism in this sense--plurality and relativism. There are more options and isms at our reach than we know what to do with. There is also the sense that all of these opt...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Incarnation Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) Recently, I've been reflecting on the process of writing. Like preaching a sermon, writing an essay for Slice of Infinity puts something of "me" out there into the world of the Internet. What I write is not the whole me, of course. You don't know what I look like by what I write (unless, of course I give you a description of my appearance); you don't know if I've had a good day or a bad day when I write my essay, nor do you know all of my inmost hopes and dreams, thoughts and secrets. What you get is indeed a slice of who I am, but it is a part of me, nevertheless. You could say my writing is something of me "enfleshed." In pondering both the mysterious transcendence of writing, and its limitations for communicating the "totality" of who I am, I began to think about the Incarnation.

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Crying When All Is Lost Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 5:00 am (GMT -4) In times of crisis we cry out almost instinctively for a power beyond our situation. In the midst of tragedy we seem to recognize that the thought of a sovereign God is comforting. I once read an essay in which the author, a Zen Buddhist, recounted the fateful day his plane came just moments from crashing. As the plane literally dropped from the sky, he recalls being completely shocked by his response, astonished by the words that came out of his mouth. He writes, "When all seemed lost, it wasn't Mu I had cried out, or even Buddha, but of all things, Jesus--in spite of everything else I had ever believed or done."(1) The Gospel of John describes a similar situation. In the chapter following the exchange between Jesus and the woman at the well, Jesus is confronted by a member of the king's circle.(2) The two accounts sit powerfully beside one another. One lif...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: Memory and Morality Posted: Sat Nov 03, 2007 4:00 am (GMT -4) There is some truth to the idea that the ethics we truly live by are discovered when they are enacted over the highest precipices--those thresholds of life, death, and weighted decision--or else the places where comfort lures boredom and indifference. In the spaces where it is hardest to remember doctrine, standards, and philosophy, there we discover the battle of moral decision is truly waged. It is far easier to secure our ethical moorings at the university or in church than it is in the turbulent hallways of the Emergency Room or the consuming distraction of affluence. This aspect of memory is one Christian ethicists address and the God of scripture lauds. "Fix it in mind, take it to heart... Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is sti...

Author: NewsFeeder Subject: The Christian Secret Posted: Sat Nov 03, 2007 4:00 am (GMT -4) Agnes Bojaxhiu, who died in 1997, was one of the most influential persons of her time. She was so, because she was so passionate about her beliefs that her life became an articulate expression of her faith. She loved life and so hated abortion; thus even when called to speak to a pre-dominantly American audience, she strongly criticized the policy. When asked to comment on her remarks, President Bill Clinton only noted, "Who can argue with a life so well-lived?" Yet, Agnes Bojaxhiu was privately racked by an emotional vacuum in her relationship with God.
