Recently, a photograph surfaced online that showed an early version of Sony’s PlayStation game system. To me, it just looked like an old cable box. But when I looked closer, I saw that this version had both a cartridge slot as well as a CD-ROM. But what really caught my eye was Nintendo’s logo prominently displayed across the controllers. I had to stop and ask – how could these two video game titans have worked together? Wouldn’t this collaboration give one an advantage over the other? It was that thought that led me back to the scriptures.

Yesterday, I saw a “Wanted” poster for a 33-year-old man with long hair and a beard. The poster said he was wanted for leading an underground liberation movement. They listed a couple aliases – “Prince of Peace” “Son of God” and “Messiah” – and warned that he’s still at large. See if you recognize him,

Have you ever been to camp? Or maybe a work retreat? Or just played on a sports team in high school? If you’ve done any of these things, odds are you’ve participated in something called a “trust building exercise.” Let me explain. The trust exercise is when a team gathers behind one member, while – at the same time, that single member is blindfolded and told to fall backwards, trusting that the rest of the team will catch them. Sounds kind of scary, right? Usually it takes a few tries before the blindfolded person is able to fall backwards and not stop themselves.

240 years ago on July 4, 1776, our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. In the preamble, Thomas Jefferson enumerated three inalienable rights given to mankind by their Creator – “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Since then, Americans (and people all over the world) have struggled to define that last right – “the pursuit of happiness.” What does it mean? If you look around at advertisements and media, we’re bombarded with products and trinkets that are guaranteed to make us happy.

I’ve heard that poetry is “the highest form of human expression.” It’s been called the “hieroglyphs of the heart” and an expression of “all that is beautiful, painful, real and imagined” – the stuff that makes life worth living. But I wonder if we ever think of God as a poet? The Bible tells us that: “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10, ESV).

A few years ago, U2 made a live concert film called U2 3D. The band allowed IMAX cameras onstage to capture their performance in incredible detail. They performed a new song called “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own,” and before he started to sing, Bono explained that he’d written it for his father. The song told a story about a father and son who had wasted most of their lives arguing only to realize that in the end, they needed one another.

When you think about a hurricane, what comes to mind – a lot of wind and rain? Or complete and total stillness? The truth is – both are present. At the center of a hurricane is something called the “eye of the storm,” a place where the wind calms, the rain stops, and the sun shines. Edward R. Murrow once described flying through the eye of the storm as flying through “a great bowl of sunshine.” There’s an interesting parallel here with the reality of prayer in our lives. Sometimes our lives can feel like hurricanes: noisy, confusing and unpredictable.

When Michelangelo talked about his sculpting process, he said that he believed that the figure was stuck in the block of stone, and his job was just to remove what didn’t belong. I think this is an interesting way to view our spiritual formation, the process in which we’re transformed to look more like our Lord Jesus. So often we think this process is about what we’re adding: more fruits of the Spirit, more prayer, more service, more giving, more heightened spiritual experiences. But what if becoming like Jesus is just as much about what we’re taking away?

Have you ever tried to lose weight? It’s a lot harder than it seems. You fight hard to eat healthy only to slip up at dinner and order a slice of cake. How does this happen? Paul talks about it in Romans: “For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do” (Romans 7:15).
