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…

Recently, Syria has been torn apart by civil war. Peaceful communities have been transformed into combat zones and many have sought refuge in other countries. 

But from all the chaos, something unexpected has emerged…

High up on Cherubim mountain, overlooking an ancient pilgrim road that once linked Jerusalem to Constantinople, a massive 105-foot statue of Christ has risen into being. Assembled over the span of three days, the statue stands on the edge of a Greek Orthodox monastery and serves as a reminder of Christ’s continuing work in this world.

You might not know who Ray Harryhausen is, but I’m sure you’ve seen some of his movies. He was the driving creative force behind such films as Clash of the Titans, Mighty Joe Young and Jason & the Argonauts. With the magic of stop-motion animation, Harryhausen brought Greek mythology to life, allowed people to fly and always helped the hero defeat the monster.

Have you ever watched a Miss America Pageant? During the show, the host asks each contestant what they would hope for. Almost every time, contestants give the answer “world peace.” It happens so often that this response has become a cliché.

But is world peace really such an unattainable idea? I’d like to say, “With Christ, it’s not!”

Most of us have had those times in our prayer lives when we aren’t quite sure how to pray for a difficult situation.

Charles Spurgeon once wrote: “How can I pray? My mind wanders: I chatter like a crane; I roar like a beast in pain; I moan in the brokenness of my heart, but oh, my God, I know not what it is my inmost spirit needs; or if I know it, I know not how to frame my petition aright before thee.”

Have you ever seen one of these?

It’s an original Jesus Doll. This one was made about sixty years ago. And it’s probably a collector’s item now. It was made at a time when the idea of ‘personality dolls’ was becoming popular. Barbie also first appeared around this time.
