Last year while hiking near Sacramento, Mike Vilhauer got lost. He wandered off the path and suddenly realized he couldn’t find his way back. As the sun sank, Mike crawled under some shelter – and over the next five days, he weathered storms, battled hunger and even fought off an angry wolverine! But as he grew weaker, he started to think he’d never be rescued.

Last year a small church in North Carolina placed a statue of Jesus out in front of their building. The only problem was that it portrayed Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. And while the installation has spurred a variety of reactions from a lot of different groups, I think it highlights one of the central aspects of what Christ’s incarnation is really about.

Let me explain…

Anyone who grew up in the 1960’s knows who these two are –

It’s Simon and Garfunkel!

And over a five-year period, they recorded a string of hits that defined a generation. They changed the music industry and many of their songs are still being played on oldies stations around the world. Just the other day, I turned on the radio and there they were, singing about “Mrs. Robinson.” I’ve probably heard that song a hundred times, but as I listened to it again, it was like I was hearing it with fresh ears.

These days there’s a lot of discussion about what church ought to look like. Do you have to gather in a cathedral? Can you meet in a high school gym? Or what about a coffee shop? Where do we draw the line? Well, a group in Ventura has started an outreach ministry that I think will re-define the concept of what “going to church” looks like.

During the period directly after the American Civil War, many universities sprung up throughout the South with a single goal: educating “freedmen” – men and women who, only months earlier had been slaves. One of the most famous of these institutions was Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. Fisk opened its doors in 1866, but soon ran into financial trouble. By 1871, the school was on the verge of bankruptcy. Unless something changed fast, they’d have to close their doors.

And that’s when the Fisk Jubilee Singers were born.

Every year on Valentine’s Day I get my wife a card and a bouquet of her favorite flowers. Then we head out to a special restaurant for a great lunch. We don’t do these things just because it’s expected or because we’re going through the motions. Instead, we make the extra effort because it’s a great opportunity to make our love tangible to each other.

A friend of mine volunteered at a camp for kids with special needs. While some of the campers were in wheelchairs or needed help getting from one activity to the other, almost all of them struggled to express themselves in a way that we’d be used to. This became apparent during a time of devotional study when one of the boys was asked to lead a prayer. This camper really wanted to do a great job. But as he started to pray, my friend leaned in, trying hard to understand the words being said.

And that’s when he had a breakthrough.

I read an interesting article last year about the history of book making. The piece included an image taken from a book printed in 1544. In the margin, I could see a tiny drawing of a hand pointing a pen toward a passage in the book. The article explained that this was a common practice among scholars of that period. They would draw these pictures in to single out passages they found particularly interesting – sort of like highlighting, only more creative.
