A Good Word from N.T. Wright

Sharon Evangelism, Missions, Theology 3 Comments

This weekend I am getting spoiled. I am currently in San Francisco attending the Society of Biblical Literature Conference, where religious scholars from all over the world come and share their latest research and insights. After only a day of sessions my brain is already over-loaded with nuggets of theological goodness, so today I’m going to share a simple but …

Out of the Heart

Sharon Evangelism, Missions, Social Justice 1 Comment

Continuing my reflections on the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit, I’m going to do something today that I almost never do: talk about a politician. I am rather jaded when it comes to politics, and I NEVER endorse candidates publicly. Not to sound overly simplistic or self-righteous, but I would much rather spend my time endorsing Jesus. However, one of …

The Radical Romance of the Gospel

Sharon Missions, Women's Ministry 4 Comments

As I’ve mentioned in several of my last posts I was out of the country last week, but I don’t think I ever actually revealed where I was. I spent the week in Dubai with some friends of mine who now serve as church planters in Central Asia. The trip was incredible! In case you’ve never been to Dubai, everything …

Evangelical She-Women

Evangelical women get a bad rap. These days, the world conceives of evangelical women as little more than Christian Stepford wives. They look pretty, they obey their husbands, and they churn out babies like there’s no tomorrow. And if they’re really good, they’ll get their own reality t.v. series about what it’s like to homeschool 16 kids. This is not, …

The True Measure of Obedience

Well I am back from spending 2 weeks on the other side of the world, and it was awesome! I tried foods I swore I’d never try (if you ever come across a fruit called durian, run far, far away as fast as you can) and I saw things I never dreamed of seeing. It was a fantastic mission trip …

To Love a Stranger

Sharon Missions 2 Comments

Since I’ve been in Southeast Asia I have done a ton of crazy stuff (ever eaten stingray??) and I’ve met some really amazing people. But of all the people I’ve met so far, one stands out among the rest, and for a very obvious reason. He is a student I met at a local university, and he is a male …

So It Turns Out West Virginia Is Pretty Awesome

Or at least their prisons are! 🙂 I just got back from my mission trip to West Virginia, and it was nothing short of INCREDIBLE. I learned more than I ever could have imagined! In addition to the many spiritual truths and insights that God revealed during the last several days, I also learned how to whip a large van …

Hey guys, I wanted to let you all know that I am gonna be out of town until next Friday, so I won’t be blogging during that time, but I would greatly appreciate your prayers. I’m taking a team of college students to West Virginia where we will be doing prison ministry. It’s going to be an amazing time for …
