Down the Mountain

Down the Mountain

People who are looking for God often climb mountains. This is why so many temples are built on high places. But the mountains we climb are not just made of rock. It is not so much that we expect to find God sitting cross-legged at the summit. We just assume that in the spiritual realm, God is high and unreachable. It is true that God is elevated...

How to Fight a Bear

When I was a kid we went on a trip to Canada. On our hikes we wore bear bells — our only defense against the beasts lurking in the thick woods. Never saw one but I’m convinced we narrowly escaped.

Stuff That Needs to Die

Stuff That Needs to Die

Healthy soil contains organic matter, which is composed of things that have died. The dead matter becomes worm food. As the matter is consumed, nutrients are released that feed other living things like plants. All this to say, decay can lead to regeneration. Jesus compared the human heart to soil.
