Shepherds Were First

In Heart, Soul by Caleb

When miracles are born in mangers, the forgotten people get front row seats, and the fancy people find their way later. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. (Luke 2:8) Shepherds were the lowest rung on the social ladder. They were the least educated and most awkward. They were overlooked, …

Hilary Hijack: Airport Rides

In Heart, Soul by Caleb

When I was younger, if I flew into Washington, there was no question who was picking me up – my mom. She would change her schedule around, drop everything to be there when my plane arrived. Even when she was in the throws of treatment for her pancreatic cancer she made the drive and picked me up. I was completely …

Cold Means Slower

In Mind, Soul by Caleb

God designed this human experience with seasons that point us in directions, orient our priorities, and cause us to look at life a bit differently.  I was just in the mountains and there was a lot of snow. So much so that we needed chains for our tires. Putting on chains isn’t the …

Newness: Forgive Again

In Mind, Soul by Caleb

Forgive, create a boundary, and forgive some more. Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.” – Matthew 18:21-22 Boundaries and forgiveness are a prickly tension. We can’t let people walk …

Newness: Everyday

In Body, Soul by Caleb

Every time you wake up, it’s a fresh start. Why do we sleep?1. To help remind us that we are not God, and God can be trusted while we’re asleep. 2. To reset our systems to begin again with each NEW day. Every new day is a new beginning. A fresh start. A system reset. We need the new beginnings …

Newness: Present & Future

In Soul by Caleb

The Kingdom of God is now and not yet. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” (Revelations 21:5) In some ways, already. In other ways, still coming. The Kingdom of God is present and also stilling being given. The Kingdom of God is realized, and also being birthed. The Kingdom of God is right in …
