smartly, not seductively

I had an interesting conversation with a friend recently. “Much preaching about women dressing modestly has been destructive,” she said, “because it subtly places the blame for men’s lust on women. Men should take responsibility for their lust, and women should be free to wear what they... read more »

after the wilderness

If you’ve ever experienced prolonged disappointment or pain, you know it can feel like you’re in the “wilderness”—a barren place where you never seem to reach the much-hoped-for “Promised Land.” This imagery is drawn from ancient Israel’s own wilderness journey (Numbers 10–36),... read more »

demanding answers

Remember that thing Charlotte used to say when she didn’t get her way?” My wife Merryn and I were sitting in church after the morning service. Merryn’s comment referred to a time when our niece, then 2 years old, wanted to play with all her blankets instead of just one, and the response she... read more »

i am He

Friends, it is time I revealed to you who I really am. I—Sheridan Voysey—am He. I am the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God. I tell you the truth, I—Sheridan Voysey—can do nothing by myself. I do only what I see the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, I also do. For the... read more »

trustworthy

My wife and I were visiting the British Museum last year when we came across a group of people in the Assyrian gallery listening to a man who we thought was a museum tour guide. “This is the Black Obelisk,” he said, pointing to a statue. “It records the triumphs of Shalmaneser III in the ninth... read more »

During an interview, a young actress described to him how she’d go out and walk the streets of Paris when she felt sad. As Kieslowski probed further, he learned that 6 years earlier the actress had been close to a... read more »

the fruit of suffering

“How are you doing now?” my friend asked as we walked down the path. The last time Adrian and I had spoken, I had told him that my wife and I were not able to have children and the pain this had brought us. “On the whole,” I said, “we’re doing better. I guess we’re trying to focus... read more »

in the shadows

I know a couple who have just had their third miscarriage. In two of those painful losses, they’ve held a perfectly formed, lifeless little body in their hands. While there’s much light in this world—beauty, goodness, joy—there are also the shadows of sadness, evil, and suffering. Sometimes... read more »

wonders and whispers

Scene 1: Elijah is on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:16-39). The prophet has declared a test. He and the prophets of Baal will each erect an altar and call to their respective gods. The one who sets the altar on fire will be revealed as the one true God (1 Kings 18:24). The prophets of Baal holler to... read more »

looking beyond calvary

The Mount Grace Priory in North Yorkshire is one of England’s best-preserved medieval monasteries. For hundreds of years, Carthusian monks lived there in solitude, devoting themselves to prayer. The priory’s ruins are impressive, but a more modern monument caught my attention on a recent visit... read more »
