Soooooo it's already the middle of August. Where did March, April, May, June and July go? When life seems more chaotic than stable, days, weeks and months tend to fly by.

This week we are wrapping up our time in the book of Philippians. As we shared in previous weeks, the Apostle Paul wrote this while he was in prison.

To be a member in Greek life means: you were most likely born in America, have a high school diploma, attend a 4-year university, and have the means to pay for it via employment, scholarships/loans, or having parents who can support you.

When I was pledging a fraternity in college, humility was the furthest thing from my mind.

During college, every time that I came home for a break, whether for summer or Christmas, I often heard the same refrain from friends and family: “You’re so different!”

“These unprecedented times...” “Awful year” “Yeah, it’s been weird” “I’m tired.” “This is so hard”. No one even needs me to write an introduction about how unfamiliar this season of life is for everyone.

I love going on night time drives with my best friends. There’s something strangely peaceful about an open road, littered with the lights of an occasional street lamp or passing vehicle. Our conversations often ebb and flow between belly laughs and comfortable silence.

I remember the excitement that came before any party, formal, mixer, etc. during my undergrad years. I remember the laughter and camaraderie that signaled the revelry to come, echoing throughout the Fraternity house.

I expect everyone, as a kid (or even as an adult), has that one article of clothing that just needs to go. It’s tired, faded and torn, but we simply won’t depart from it because, despite being decrepit and maybe filthy, it’s familiar and comfortable.

It takes only a few seconds of scrolling through social media to see that our country is filled with injustice, privilege, violence, fighting, finger pointing, and distrust. Maybe you, like me, find yourself asking “God, where is the justice? Where is the grace?” almost every minute of the day these days.

Friends, welcome to the first summer devotional! This summer, we'll be focusing on two New Testament letters from Paul- Colossians & Philippians.

Well, it’s safe to say this school year is not ending the way any of us thought or hoped that it would. Life has changed for us all over the past two months.

The death of Jesus. A gruesome and vile act. The moment that Christians associate with their salvation. "His death paid my sins." ... "By the cross we are liberated." ... "Jesus' crucifixion replaced my shame with honor."

What are you a fan of? A sports team, an actor/actress, musicals, artists, or something else entirely? A fan is someone who is a supporter, one who is enthusiastically devoted to a person, place, or thing.

Whenever I went home for a break in college it was bitter-sweet- I would be away from my friends, I would have less freedom over my schedule, and I would miss campus, but… at least I wouldn’t have to struggle with party culture for a few weeks!

Do you like knowing what is going to happen ahead of time? Do you like controlling your reality? What about knowing where your next internship will be and who you'll be working for? What about knowing when the Coronavirus quarantine will end, does that interest you?

Universities closed. Graduations cancelled. The NBA shut down. Bars & restaurants shuttered until further notice. Churches moving to online services only. We're living in strange times.

“So, where do you want to eat?” Ugh. I’m one of those people that this is my least favorite question. “I don’t care, wherever you want...But not this place or that place! Anywhere else.”

If you grew up Catholic or Lutheran, Lent may be an old idea to you. But for many folks who grew up Evangelical or not Christian, Lent is a foreign concept.

The next morning as I escorted “Jenna” out of my fraternity house – my brothers noticed.  Eyebrows were raised. Heads were scratched.
