Sunday Supplication - Resurrection Sunday

O God, you gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross for our redemption. And by his glorious resurrection you delivered us from the power of our enemy. We pray that you would help us die to sin so that we might live eternally with him in the joy of his resurrection.

By your glorious resurrection power, deliver us from the power of evil. We confess our sins and weaknesses, Lord. We repent of the ways we have disobeyed and turned from you. Forgive us and help us to turn away from wrong. 

Transform us and give us the faith to press toward life, healing, restoration, holiness, and good deeds.

God of Truth, we believe that Jesus, your son, is the way, the truth, and the life. Help us to know him and to follow him closely that we might walk in your truth and grace. It’s in his name we pray. Amen.
You are so gracious to us, and we ask you to make us able and quick to be gracious toward others.

Thursday Thinking - Religion & Same-Sex Marriage

The CNN Opinion Page has a helpful piece by Marc D. Stern that strikes a good balance between religious and civil liberties. Stern is general counsel of the American Jewish Committee and a contributor to the book, Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Liberty. In the CNN piece, he highlights several important factors that the American public must keep in mind as the Supreme Court gives careful consideration to same-sex marriage.

Stern points out that we should expect the debate over same-sex marriage to have a strong religious component, but government should not further one religious view over another on gay marriage. Even so, he says, we must be careful to not minimize the ways same-sex marriage will inevitably challenge religious freedoms and practice. For instance, would religious colleges be required to provide housing to same-sex couples? Stern rightly accepts that religious views and practices should not violate civil rights, but cautions that care must also be taken to ensure that individual freedoms do not infringe or erode religious liberties.
The U.S. Supreme Court has not been asked -- nor could it possibly answer -- the question of what God or the Bible thinks about same-sex marriage. Religious groups are divided on that question, some supporting and others opposing same-sex marriage. And even if the religious viewpoint were clear, it should play no direct role in deciding whether the Constitution requires the states or the federal government to recognize same-sex marriage. Our government should not act to further one or another religious view of contested moral issues.
- - -
Same-sex couples should not be denied the right to civil marriage; that is the immediate issue in the cases now before the Supreme Court. And when that right is secured, same-sex couples should not, without very good reason, be allowed to force dissenting religious organizations to recognize or facilitate their marriages.

Wednesday Words - Holy Saturday Prayer & Poem

Prayer for Holy Saturday
O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
from the Book of Common Prayer

On the Seventh Day
On the seventh day God rested
in the darkness of the tomb;
Having finished on the sixth day
all his work of joy and doom.

Now the word had fallen silent,
and the water had run dry,
The bread had all been scattered,
and the light had left the sky.

The flock had lost its shepherd,
and the seed was sadly sown,
The courtiers had betrayed their king,
and nailed him to his throne.

O Sabbath rest by Calvary,
O calm of tomb below,
Where the grave-clothes and the spices
cradle him we did not know!

Rest you well, beloved Jesus,
Caesar's Lord and Israel's King,
In the brooding of the Spirit,
in the darkness of the spring.

by N. T. Wright from Easter Oratorio Libretto

Tuesday Tome - Jayber Crow Again

My wife is currently re-reading Wendell Berry's wonderful novel, Jayber Crow. Making her way through the book once again, she has been reminded of so many beautiful and thought-provoking passages. She reads some of these aloud to me, making it inevitable that I too will soon be revisiting the little village of the Port William Membership, probably this summer.

Here are a few examples of the pure gold to be gleaned from the pages of this story written by this humble village barber, whose hands remember the shape of so many heads, and whose insights reflect the wisdom gained from the quiet observation of so many lives.
This , I thought, is what is meant by ‘thy will be done’ in the Lord’sPrayer, which I had prayed time and again without thinking about it. It means that your will and God’s will may not be the same. It means there’s a good possibility that you won’t get what you pray for. It means that in spite of your prayers you are going to suffer. It means you may be crucified….But now I was unsure what it would be proper to pray for, or how to pray for it. After you have said, ‘thy will be done,’ what more can be said? And where do you find the strength to pray ‘thy will be done ’after you see what it means?” (p 51)

“By then I wasn’t just asking questions; I was being changed by them.” (p52)“If I was freer than I had ever been in my life, I was not yet entirely free,for I still hung on to an idea that had been set deep in me by all my schooling so far: I was a bright boy and I ought to make something out of myself…something else that would be a cut or two above my humble origins.” (p. 56)“I prayed like a man walking in a forest at night, feeling his way with his hands, at each step fearing to fall into pure bottomlessness forever.Prayer is like lying awake at night, afraid, with your head under the cover, hearing only the beating of your own heart. It is like a bird that has blundered down the flue and is caught indoors and flutters at the windowpanes. It is like standing a long time on a cold day, knocking at a shut door.” (p 253)

“I could see no escape. We [humans] are too tightly tangled together to be able to separate ourselves from one another either by good or by evil.We all are involved in all and any good, and in all and any evil. For any sin, we all suffer. That is why our suffering is endless. It is why God grieves and Christ’s wounds still are bleeding.” (p 295)

Sunday Supplication - Everlasting and Faithful

O God, you are everlasting and always faithful.

We thank you for the grace and love you have proven to us by sending Son our Savior Jesus Christ into the world. He emptied himself, and he became one of us, and he suffered death upon the cross in order to free us from the penalty and the prison of sin.

Give us humble and thankful hearts. Help us to walk in his ways and to live by the power of his resurrection. Show us how to act, think, and live as Christ.  And as you have forgiven us, make us merciful and ready to forgive those who have sinned against us.

Holy Father, though life is difficult and demanding, you are attentive and faithful. Though the world is entangled in the lie that everything is meaningless, you give us meaning, purpose, and hope.

Thank you for the salvation, the strength, and the stability you give through Jesus. It’s in his name we pray. Amen.

Friday Family - LEAGUES AT TEN

Congratulations to my son, Tyler, and bandmates. Their band, LEAGUES, made #10 on Paste Magazines list of top 25 shows at this year's SXSW.

LEAGUES has that indefinable “it”—the magic when a group of musicians gets together and the result sounds like nothing any of them have played before. Ditching his guitar and his country twang, Cockrell is free to sing and dance with newfound swagger. But none of it would matter if it weren’t for a collection of fantastic songs that seem crafted for the arena stage.

Thursday Thinking - Perspectives on Guns

I've listened to three parts of this series so far and have learned something interesting in each program. I thought it might be good to pass along the link to the series page for those of you who, like me, are trying to think through gun problems and policy in America.

Special Series on NPR: All Things Considered -
Guns in America: A Loaded Relationship
All this week on the program, we're going to be talking about guns. Last December's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut revived a vigorous debate about gun laws and what can be done to reduce gun violence in this country. This week, we'll have stories about how doctors are responding to the violence. Their primary concern is suicide. And we'll also examine gun culture in Switzerland, where gun ownership is high and violence by firearms has remained relatively low.

Wednesday Words - Lenten Selections, Week 5

From the Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Bread of the World, In Mercy Broken

Bread of the world, in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul, in mercy shed,
By Whom the words of life were spoken,
And in Whose death our sins are dead.

Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
Look on the tears by sinners shed;
And be Thy feast to us the token,
That by Thy grace our souls are fed.

Reginald Heber (1783-1826)

Becoming a True Spiritual Community
by Larry Crabb

In today's frenetic society, people spend their lives essentially disconnected from others, rushing through life content with brief visits and casual conversations. But what if one had a spiritual community of people who walked with and supported each other through life's journey? Larry Crabb explores how God can heal disconnected people and allow them to reconnect with each other and, ultimately, with Him.

Sunday Supplication - Our Wills and Desires

Almighty God, we come to you today asking you to help us to submit our wills and our desires to Yours.

Help us to live stable lives with your direction and wisdom. Help us to love your commands and to delight in your promises as we face the challenges and changes all around us. Give us your joy and peace in every circumstance.

Forgive us our sins, O God. Lead us away from temptation. You are so faithful to forgive and restore those who have sinned against you. Help us to be faithful to forgive and restore those who sin against us.

O God, give us the eyes to see your goodness, and the minds to remember your faithfulness to your people throughout history. Give us hearts that are ready to worship you all day every day, and voices that are quick to sing your praise.

Through Christ, we pray. Amen

Thursday Thinking - Francis, A Pope of the Poor

E. J. Dionne, opinion writer for the Washington Post, makes some interesting observations about the new Pope in a column posted yesterday. Dionne, a Catholic himself, says that Bergoglio was a surprising choice for almost everyone, a disappointing choice for those wanting liberal reforms, but a strong and hopeful choice for the world's poor and marginalized.

From Washington Post, March 13--
In winning election as Pope Francis, Jorge Mario Bergoglio defied the papal pundits, even though they should have seen him coming. His rise marks the decisive shift within Roman Catholicism toward Latin America and the developing world. In theological terms, he represents continuity, yet he is the first non-European pope in more than 1,000 years, and also the first Jesuit.

He is a doctrinal conservative who battled gay marriage in Argentina and fellow Jesuits who were more liberal. But he also rebuked priests who denied baptism to children born out of wedlock and has spoken out strongly for social justice. He is the first pope to take the name of the saint known for his devotion to humility and to the poor. He is likely to weigh in often on behalf of the world’s poorest regions.

“We live in the most unequal part of the world, which has grown the most yet reduced misery the least,” Bergoglio told Latin American bishops in 2007. “The unjust distribution of goods persists, creating a situation of social sin that cries out to heaven and limits the possibilities of a fuller life for so many of our brothers.”

Wednesday Words - Lenten Selections, Week 4

From the Book of Common Prayer:
Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A gracious Sabbath stood here while they stood
Who gave our rest a haven.
Now fallen, they are given
To labor and distress.
These times we know much evil, little good
To steady us in faith
And comfort when our losses press
Hard on us, and we choose,
In panic or despair or both,
To keep what we will lose.

For we are fallen like the trees, our peace
Broken, and so we must
Love where we cannot trust,
Trust where we cannot know,
And must await the wayward-coming grace
That joins living and dead,
Taking us where we would not go–
Into the boundless dark.
When what was made has been unmade
The Maker comes to His work.
"Sabbaths, II from 1985" by Wendell Berry.

Tuesday Tome - A New Lewis Biography

I'm adding Alister McGrath's biography of C. S. Lewis to my library after reading good comments about it in an article by A. N. Wilson. It must be gratifying for McGrath to get such high marks from Wilson, who, himself, is a much-respected biographer of Lewis. Wilson writes:
There have been plenty of biographies of Lewis—I once wrote one myself—but I do not think there has been a better one than Alister McGrath’s. He is a punctilious and enthusiastic reader of all Lewis’s work—the children’s stories, the science fiction, the Christian apologetics and the excellent literary criticism and literary history. He is from Northern Ireland, as Lewis was himself, and he is especially astute about drawing out the essentially Northern Irish qualities of this very odd man.
The release date (February 2013) of McGrath's book, C. S. Lewis: A Life - Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet, coincides with the 50th anniversary of Lewis' death. The book runs a substantial 448 pages and will be followed up with another shorter volume, The Intellectual World of C. S. Lewis (April 2013). Will there be anything new to read in these many pages? Publisher's Weekly says, "Yes."
"...times have changed and evangelical sentiments have matured. McGrath offers a new and at times shocking look into the complicated life of this complex figure, in a deeply researched biography. The author takes us headlong into the heart of a Lewis we’ve known little about: his unconventional affair with Mrs. Jane Moore; his hostile and deceptive relationship with his father; his curiosity about the sensuality of cruelty. McGrath navigates the reader through these messy themes, ultimately landing us onto the solid ground of Lewis’s postconversion legacy. He shows with skill, sympathy, dispassion, and engaging prose that Lewis, like the rest of us, did the best he could with the hand he was dealt. But he got over it, as must all those who would prefer a Lewis without shadows."
And here's what McGrath has to say about his new book:

Monday Music - David Eugene Edwards

How is it that I've never heard of this guy before? What a startling discovery! I checked out a number of interviews and videos about him over the weekend. He is a deep and fascinating person, and his music reflects that depth and wonder.

"I try to be true to myself and to be sincere. If I’m being sincere about something wrong, at least I’m being sincere. I just try to be truthful to myself with the music that I play and the words that I sing. I don’t have any specific message. I don’t have this message of joy or anything specific, it’s just life; all the different emotions that go with life. One minute you’re happy and the next, you’re completely depressed, depending on the situation, but always the Lord is there guiding you through whatever it is. That’s how I see the music." 
--From an interview posted on Holiday at the Sea

Sunday Supplication - The True Bread

Gracious Father, thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ, the true bread of heaven which gives life to the world. Fill us with this bread that we might take hold of the life he gives.

Forgive us our sins, O God. And as you have shown us mercy, make us able to be forgiving and merciful to others. Help us to turn away from what is wrong and to do what is right. Help us to escape temptation.

Holy Father, open the eyes of our hearts and enlighten us in order that we may know the hope to which you have called us. Show us your goodness, and transform us by your great and saving power.

Through Christ, we pray. Amen

Thursday Thinking - Believing in Jesus

When someone says, "I believe in Jesus," what does that mean? Here is a surprising video from Mo Sabri, a Pakistani-American Muslim who studies Pre-Medicine at University in Tennessee. He boldly says he is not afraid to say he believes in Jesus. He asserts that Jesus could be a point of connection and peace-making among Muslims and Christians if only those who say they believe in him would follow his teachings.

In January, Carl Medearis (Middle East Experience), a friend of Mo Sabri, blogged about Muslims who follow Jesus. He notes that there are a variety of ways people "follow" Jesus, and describes three groups of followers: "The Crowds," "The Curious," and "The Committed." It's a thought-provoking post worth reading.

I would suggest that Carl should have included one more category to his list of followers, "The Converted." Converts are those who are truly convinced that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God, who live their lives in submission to him, desiring to be transformed by his Spirit, and looking to him as the one who makes it possible for God's redeeming purposes to be accomplished. This, of course, is a point of departure for most Christians and Muslims (illustrated very quickly and clearly in the comments section on Carl's post). For some within Islam, however, this deepest way of following Jesus has resulted in conversion.

Surprising as it may seem, there are insiders within Muslim culture who actually do live their lives as Converts. They are more than curious or committed, they are converts. They don't just see Jesus as a prophet or moral guide; they see him as Lord and Savior. Even though they do not abandon all aspects of Muslim culture, practice, and tradition, they do place faith in Isa as the one who overcame death. They may have begun by following Isa as prophet and messenger, but they now follow him as Savior and Lord.

Let me encourage you to check out the cover story in the January/February edition of Christianity Today, "Worshiping Jesus in the Mosque." Very interesting! It makes me wonder just what God might be doing within Islamic cultures to accomplish his will.
Can people from other religious traditions genuinely follow Jesus without becoming "Christians"? The question is a point of much dispute within today's missions world. Those who follow Jesus yet don't formally express Christian faith are said to belong to insider movements. And no insider movement has received more attention than Muslims who embrace Christ yet stay within their Islamic community. READ MORE...

Wednesday Words - Lenten Selections, Week 3

From the Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Every Morning, Mercies New

Every morning, mercies new
Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Every morning let us pay
Tribute with the early day:
For your mercies, God, are sure;
Your compassion does endure.

Still the greatness of your love
Daily does our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought to those who pray
Strength to stand in every day.

Let our prayers each day prevail,
That these gifts might never fail;
And, as we confess the sin
And temptation's pow'r within,
Every morning, for the strife,
Feed us with the Bread of Life.

As the morning light returns,
As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
Ever blessed Trinity,
With our hands our hearts to raise,
In unfailing prayer and praise.

Words: Greville Phillimore (19th Century)

Tuesday Tome - The Pope

Pope Benedict's retirement has stirred up a lot of interest and conversation on the subject of the papacy. If your curiosity has been sparked, you might find this book interesting-- The Popes: Histories and Secrets. I bought this book quite a long time ago as a reference book. It is no longer in print, but pretty easy to find in used book stores. The Popes is a chronological description of the personalities and histories of the 264 popes in Catholic Church history previous to Pope Benedict XVI.

If you're looking for quick information about papal history, Wikipedia has many articles on the office in general and the specific popes who have held the office. For instance, you can read about Gregory VII, the most "recent" case of a pope abdicating the papal office (that was 1415!) prior to Benedict's retirement. You'll find a complete Wikipedia list of Roman Catholic Popes HERE.

To get a primer into the thinking and writing of Benedict XVI, you might want to check out The Essential Pope Benedict XVI: His Central Writings and Speeches. The sections of the book include: The Church, The Liturgy, Theology, Scripture, The Priesthood, and Christian Morality. In his early years, Joseph Ratzinger was considered a liberal theologian, but after 1968 his views on culture and theology became conservative. He is one of the more prolific popes in church history. His writings typically defend traditional Catholic doctrine and values while countering the Western secularism he believed to be so destructive in the 20th and 21st centuries.

If you're interested in learning how to become the next pontiff, you'll find this video to be helpful.

This Is the Testimony 
1 John 5:11-12
This is the testimony-

And this life is in his son--
He who does not have the son does not have life.

Sunday Supplication - Shaped and Guided

Almighty God, we know that without your grace we are powerless to help ourselves. We ask you to help us in heart, mind, and body as we seek to be your people. Save us from all those things threaten and tempt us in our bodies, and from all evil thoughts that hurt us in mind and spirit.

Forgive us our sins. Help us to die to ourselves and to live through you. Make us willing and able to forgive others as you have forgiven us. Help us to think, speak, and act in ways that restore lives, nurture relationships, create peace, and bring honor to you.

Thank you, O God, for salvation and life through Christ. Help us to surrender fully to you and to follow Jesus with whole hearts. Help us to know Jesus--to love him, to understand him, to honor him,
and to draw near to him so that our lives are completely shaped and guided by him.

It’s in His Saving Name that we pray these things. Amen.
