It was on a snowy evening in January when the doctor received an urgent call summoning him to perform an emergency brain surgery at Trinity Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama. But he was only able to drive a few blocks before his car stalled in a heavy snowstorm. He made the decision to walk the rest of his journey in the biting cold. Finally, he arrived at the hospital, dried himself off and got to work.

Noted Theologian Karl Rahner once lamented that if you took the doctrine of the Trinity out of modern Christianity, most churches and religious literature would remain unchanged. That’s a scary prediction, but it did get me thinking about how important this concept really is.

When people think of the word “grandparent,” it is often connected to another word: retirement. It seems like there’s a memo going around that when we get older, we have to slow down. But let me tell you about a lady who disregarded that memo. Her name is Mavis Albin, and she’s a grandmother of eight. Instead of trading in her heels for a pair of comfy slippers, she bought some Nikes and hit the gym. Since childhood, she dreamed of playing basketball, and at 55 those dreams came true.

I’m sure almost all of you have used Microsoft Excel at some point during your professional career. It’s a computer program that helps you manage large amounts of information. The data is entered into a “cell” and then organized across a spreadsheet and highlighted according to user’s preference. Sounds kind of boring, right?

If you tuned in for the Olympic ice-skating in Russia earlier this year, you probably heard a piece of music written by Japanese composer Mamoru Samuragochi. Over the last 20 years, Samuragochi has worked his way to the top of the charts, composing for both symphony orchestra and video games alike. And he did it all while being completely deaf!

C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite religious authors. His wit and intelligent defense of Christianity have always encouraged me in my faith. But when I read through Mere Christianity last week, I was challenged by this quote: “I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless he sees that it is good for him to wait” (Lewis, Mere Christianity). Now when I read that I had to stop and think, “What does he mean?” Let me take a stab at unpacking it.

Have you ever heard the phrase: The Wrath of God? It’s the kind of saying that sends shivers down your spine and conjures up imagery from Dante’s Inferno. But when you really think about it, what does “the wrath of God” actually mean? How can God be fully love and also pour out wrath? It’s a question that has baffled many scholars for thousands of years.

I want to tell you a story…
