What Is In Your Hand?

This past weekend in my message at Eastbrook, I asked a question from John 6:1-15: “what is in your hand?” I started my message with the story of Dr. Abraham Verghese, a medical professional and professor at Stanford University. Verghese was recently featured in a TED talk entitled “A Doctor’s Touch” that is profound. You can watch his presentation below, or read more about it here:

A Visual for Chaff

Since most people I know do not live a rural, agrarian societies, I thought I’d share this video clip about chaff that helped me have a visual picture for my message, this past weekend, “Chaff,” from Psalm 1:4-6:

Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

A Song of Hope – “You Never Let Go”

I talked with a few different people this past week who are in the midst of some challenging situations. In the midst of our focus on hope this week, the following song came back to my mind. It speaks hope into our lives with the simple, yet profound, truth that God walks with us through the ups and downs of our lives. I hope it’s an encouragement to you today.

[This is a continuation of this week’s theme of “Beginning to Live with Hope.”]

Martin Luther King, Jr., and Pride (In the Name of Love)

As we remember a real legend of our own nation today, here is a moving rendition of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love)” covered by John Legend. This was recorded for a History Channel special on Martin Luther King, Jr. entitled King. Find out more about the show here.

It’s hard not to be moved by the final words of the video, showing MLK saying the following:

If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means, keep moving.

Stories of Influence: Dietrich Bonhoeffer – The Power of Truth

Mel Lawrenz, who recently visited with us at Eastbrook Church, has produced a very nice video short on Dietrich Bonhoeffer in support of his new book Spiritual Influence. Bonhoeffer is one of the most influential 20th century theologians whose importance continues to grow today. Bonhoeffer’s writings on community and discipleship have transformed my own journey with Christ.
