Psalm 119:97. Oh, how I love your law! All the day long it is in my mind. My father-in-law declared, when it was clear I would NOT convert before marrying his son, “I don’t blame you. Judaism is really hard because of the Torah’s 613 commandments (of which 10 are really...

Mark 6:7-8. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and give them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts. Recently my husband and I were asked to join the steering...

Psalm 79:8. Remember not our past sins; let your compassion be swift to meet us; for we have been brought very low. Are we human? Do we live on God’s earth in community with others of our kind? If so, I’m willing to wager that we have all experienced forgiveness and compassion...

John 4:11. The woman said to [Jesus], “Sir, you have no bucket and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?” Jesus was traveling with his disciples from Judea where his disciples had been baptizing, unsettling the Pharisees, to Galilee through Samaria, whose people...

Genesis 43:9. If I do not bring him back to you and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever. Joseph’s brothers had gone to Egypt seeking food during the famine. Now the food had run out, and their father Jacob told them to go back to Egypt. Joseph, whom they had not...

1 Corinthians 6:20. Therefore Glorify God in your body. Those of you that already know me, know that I enjoy athletic activity; rowing, bicycle riding, hiking, weight lifting, etc. So, when I read my assigned verse for this reflection, I got really excited! Many of my family, friends, and...

Acts 1:26. And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles. In this story the apostles pray and ask God to show whether Justus or Matthias should become the one to replace Judas and then they basically flip a coin. There are times I long...

1 Corinthians 5:3-4. I have already pronounced judgment in the name of the Lord Jesus on the man who has done such a thing. The Apostle Paul wrote these words many centuries ago and yet it still finds a foothold in our modern world. Here, Paul writes to a group of fledgling Christians in...
