30 Days of Thankfulness: An Exercise in Intentional Gratitude

30 Days of Thankfulness: An Exercise in Intentional Gratitude

Recently, as I spend time in the Word, I find myself being particularly drawn to the theme of thankfulness. While the Scriptures are silent on many of the things we tend to quibble about, one thing that they’re not silent about is thankfulness — when we ought to give it, why we ought to give it, and even to an extent, how we ought to give it. Take a look at what I mean…

Burn Like a Fire in Me

Burn Like a Fire in Me

What is it that you want out of life? What burns inside of you? What keeps you awake at night? What in the world are you passionate about?

Who Do You Think You Are?

As I set out to type this post, it’s 2:18am. The light of my laptop screen shines in an otherwise dark room and Bobby Timmons provides me with some background music. I spent the past hour tossing and turning, partially because I’m excited to move back to…

Jesus Love Me, This I Know…

I was driving home this afternoon as, unexpectedly, the lyrics of “Jesus Loves Me” popped into my head. I don’t think I have to remind you how the tune goes. For those of us who grew up in the church, its unadorned simplicity is unforgettable. I think,…

When in Rome…

Today, we embarked on a mission to do as the Romans do. The first step was making it to Rome. Out of the 14 students studying abroad in Leipzig, 13 decided to start their travels in Rome. Since we all had to catch the same flight, we left this morning at…

Prague, cooked duck, and how to almost get kicked off of the train in the middle of nowhere.

After a brief class this morning, we dismissed and those of us going to Prague for the weekend went to our rooms and packed. We arrived at the train station with about half an hour to spare, so we ate at some sort of Asian food place. The train ride was…
