Future Hope: Things are not as they Seem


Created by Lorna Johnston on 1/14/2020 10:48:00 AM

It seems fitting to spend some time, standing at the beginning of a New Year full of potential and unknowns, to spend time looking at the things we're already certain of in the future.

We know more about the future than most, don't we?

As Christ-followers we actually know how it all turns out.

New Beginnings

Photographs, memories of childhood road trips, and words from the prophet Jeremiah. Thoughts on how God's love & mercy give us a new beginning each time we pause & reflect on who he is, and what he has done. 


A Season for Peace

We view Christmas as a season of peace, but does December really feel peaceful? 

Jesus is referred to as the Prince of Peace. What does His peace look like in the midst of regular life, including the difficult times? 


Everything is New in 2020 in Light of the Incarnation

God’s word of love becomes flesh in us, is embodied in us, is enacted through us and in doing so, trust is forged between word spoken and the reality of which it speaks, between the words we speak and transcendent realities to which we point. 


The Hope of Christmas

I am so grateful for Christmas, for The Hope of Christmas. Not the sugar-coated, Hallmark movie kind of Christmas, where everything turns out okay in the end. Not the presents and candy canes and tinsel. Not even all the messaging about love and giving and togetherness.

Our Hope has a name. Jesus Christ, Immanuel, God with us.


What does Christmas Look Like?

I know the ideal Christmas looks different to each one of us.

I wonder if God has an ideal image of Christmas that he wants to develop in our minds.

For many, thoughts of Christmas involve family gatherings, festive decorations, and the smell of our favorite seasonal foods. For some, the look of Christmas is a decorated tree that is shadowed by heaping mounds of brightly wrapped presents. For others, the look of Christmas is more like a Norman Rockwell or Hallmark image, or the beautiful December page in our calendar.

In spite of the various ways our cultures decorate, some of us picture Christmas with a tiny baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger, surrounded by livestock, shepherds, angels, and wise men.


Full Circle Gratitude

30+ years ago I was a Graduate Student.

One of my housemates was a teacher, and a very even- tempered woman that everyone loved. I distinctly recall one weekend she was in tears, and bawling. I had never seen her cry before and asked if she was okay. 

She managed to get out “no” between sobs.


Giving Thanks when Life Sucks

There are so many things that happen in our lives that just suck.  How can we give thanks when times are tough? Is it really God’s will that all these bad things happen in our lives? A simple understanding of how we can give thanks when bad things are happening is to look at things from a broader context.
