Madonna, the 57-year old queen of pop, made a tearful reference to the recent Paris attacks at her concert the other night in Stockholm, Sweden. She said, "There are people who have no respect for human life and there are people that do atrocious, degrading, and unforgivable things to other human beings. But we will never, ever, ever change this world we live in if we do not change ourselves."

When performing weddings, pastors often walk a delicate line between competing agendas of the couple, their families, musicians, and wedding directors, many of whom may not fully appreciate that a wedding is a religious service, the occasion of which is the love of two people celebrated and witnessed before God.

Developing a language of humility

I've seen a dynamic in couples struggling in their relationships that I do not often see in stable, loving relationships. That factor is this: Stable, loving couples have developed a language of humility and use it.

I have found that God does this amazing thing when we are present during the death of a loved one. When the time comes for that person to move on, and when the veil between heaven and earth becomes increasingly thin, God creates what can only be called "holy moments" for those who make themselves truly "present."

It's too easy to chalk up last week's tragedy in a New York church to the actions of a bunch of crazies. It's too easy to simply shake one's head in disgust, flip the page and move past the story without thinking how such a horrific thing might relate to us.

Not long ago, I was having lunch with a few pastor friends of mine when one remarked at how often he sees siblings from the same family, all raised the exact same way in regards to church, approach church involvement very differently as adults. Some become pillars of their church, while others appear quite indifferent (possibly attending or even serving when it is convenient) or completely stay away.

I've had the opportunity to develop and teach a few ethics courses at Armstrong. In those courses, which I base on Christian ethics, I often feel the need to outline for students the distinction between "deontological" and "teleological" motives in ethical decision-making. Let me explain.

One way Jesus taught and reinforced Kingdom values was by reinterpreting laws. In His interpretations, Jesus would emphasize to His listeners the spirit behind a law, instead of the necessity to blindly follow some rule without understanding why it was important. He often explained a law in terms of the fundamental, eternal truth undergirding it - such as the holiness of God - so His audience could see the law in a new light, and understand it as a reflection of righteousness instead of as a burden or yoke. "You have heard it said…., but I say to you…." was one common ...

I will never forget the young man who came to see me years ago about a friend of his. It seemed that every time this young man, who I will call "Joe," began to move forward in his life or career, his friend - who struggled with a substance abuse problem - would have a crisis and Joe would put everything on hold to help him. It was like clockwork, he told me.

Bonnie Parker was a faithful person, perhaps not much different from you or me. She was a dedicated follower of Christ and sincerely wanted to believe with all her heart. Then, she was diagnosed with cancer.
