- Where do you draw the line between needs and wants?
I’ve been thinking quite a bit about material possessions recently. In the Bible there’s a spectrum of wealth that ranges from the destitute (think the prophet out in the wilderness) to the opulent (think the kings). Both find favor in God, yet they live in vastly different economic conditions. There do seem to be certain […]
- Is is time to rethink the tithe?
With tax day right around the corner, it’s not surprising that finances—and in particular, tithing—is on people’s minds.

That’s the message from the Givewell Blog, which cautions donors to be careful about donating to just any charity […]
- What’s your favorite part of Creation?
Up here in Michigan, the sun is finally starting to appear with a modicum of regularity. We’re sure to get hit with another snowfall—three years of living here has tempered my weather-based optimism—but until then, I plan to enjoy seeing all the friendly, happy faces out on the streets. With Spring on people’s minds, I […]
