Merry Christmas! 2020 Year End

Generally, when posts and memes and tee-shirts reference 2020, they 1) point to how hard this year has been and 2) include one or more swear words to make the point. I have had more than a few moments when I have felt similar feelings about the world we live in now. Pandemic, racial tension, political unrest. I can understand [...]

He Is Risen – Station 7

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb… John 20:11 I imagine she hadn’t slept. Her pain too intense, her loss too deep. Did she toss on her mat, did she sit outside of her home curled up and crying, did she wander aimlessly in the dark? For aimless, she [...]

Jesus Dies on the Cross – Station 5

Christ is Crucified. Our Redemption is Accomplished. Jesus is raised up on the cross. He is surrounded by a distressing and frantic scene. People pass by and yell horrible remarks at him, or they are entirely indifferent. The chief priests are sarcastic and scathing towards him. There is no anger and contempt of Jesus’ eyes – only compassion. Our hope [...]

Celebrating 10 Years in Haiti!

I am not a big wrestling fan; the truth is I’m not a fan at all except for maybe Nacho Libre (Pssssst Chancho, I need to borrow some sweats). Even though I am not a fan of wrestling, one of my favorite stories in the Bible is when Jacob wrestles with God in Genesis 32. The night before he is [...]

Jesus is Nailed to the Cross ~ Station Four

Now Thomas (also known as Didymus ), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I [...]

Jesus Carries His Cross ~ Station 3

This week’s devotion begins quite ominously and somber. We enter into the event where Pilate delivered Jesus to them to be crucified. This action happened right after Pilate made another attempt to release Jesus but was shouted down: “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!” “Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked. “We have no king but Caesar!” John 19:15. [...]

Jesus is Condemned – Station 2

Luke 22: 66-71; 23:1-25  Jesus is Condemned - Station 2 They all shouted, “So, are you claiming to be the Son of God?” And he replied, “You say that I am.” “Why do we need other witnesses?” they said. “We ourselves heard Him say it.”  Luke 22:70‭-‬71 NLT Then a mighty roar rose from the crowd, and with one voice [...]
