Have you heard of the smartphone app Postmates? It lets you to order food from almost any restaurant in your city and have it delivered right to your door. It’s amazing! These days, it feels like the world is changing faster than ever. But in the midst of all the change, the writer of Hebrews tells us that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

The other day, I saw a video of an Uber driver and his passengers singing along with The Weeknd’s hit song “I Can’t Feel My Face.” Every time they pulled up to a red light, the car would start shaking with all the dancing! It looked like a lot of fun, and it reminded me of these Psalms: “Shout for the joy of the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs… Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name” (Psalm 100:1-4).

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “Behind every great man is a great woman.” That statement has never been truer than when you open up the Bible. Whether it was Moses’s mother Jochebed, Samuel’s mother Hannah or Jesus’s mother Mary, you can see how God uses mothers to raise up the next generation of believers. They help us better understand God’s covenant love, of his compassion, his discipline, his patience, his longsuffering!

A few weeks ago I attended a friend’s church. As the service began, the choir began to sing an old hymn. It was a paraphrase of Martin Luther’s theological work, and it went like this:

A few months ago, Bill Del Monte passed away. He was 109 years old. But that’s not what caught my attention. Bill was also a one-of-a-kind guy. He was the last surviving San Franciscan who lived through the 1906 earthquake that leveled his city. One could think that after living through that, Bill would have wanted to get as far away from the city as he could. But the opposite is true. Bill stayed with San Francisco, always showing up to the commemorative gathering at Lotta’s Fountain before dawn. He was a link to the past, a living reminder of San Francisco’s past and re-birth.

Mark Gubins is an artist. He works out of an art studio near the airport. He’s so close that as the jumbo jets start their final approach for landing, they fly right over his studio. Wanting to be a good neighbor, Gubins climbed up onto his roof and in big, bold white lettering he wrote – WELCOME TO CLEVELAND.

The only problem is: Gubins doesn’t live anywhere near Cleveland. Both he and his studio are in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since he painted the sign, a number of airline passengers have done a double take, suddenly believing that they got on the wrong flight.

One of the most incredible mysteries in all of physics is called “quantum entanglement.” This is the phenomenon of two or more particles becoming “entangled” in such a way that each particle’s quantum state cannot be described independently of the other, no matter what their location in the universe is. This means that the two particles could be light years apart, but both will react equally and simultaneously to a force acting on just one of them.

A few years ago, Twitter offered users the option to upgrade their accounts to a “Premium version.” For five dollars a month, Premium Twitter users could have access to all the vowels in the English alphabet. Sounds crazy, right? But as I started scrolling through the feed, I looked at the date on my computer – April first. And I realized I’d been April Fooled by Twitter. Twitter’s upgrade was just a funny joke, but I know that there are lots of ways we can actually fool ourselves into thinking we need to upgrade our relationship with Christ by buying the “legalism package.”

Paul Harvey used to host a radio program called The Rest of the Story. It worked like this: he hooked the audience with a great opening, and then, when he had them on the edge of their seats, he’d reveal the identity of the famous person at the heart of the tale. But the show wasn’t over until you heard him deliver that famous catchphrase: “And now you know… the rest of the story!”

Last year, Dulles Airport hosted a microphotography exhibit that focused on cell imagery that was magnified 50,000 times the normal size. These wall-sized images included everything from the individual hairs that sense movement in the inner ear, to cross-sections of the brain’s movement sensors. The exhibit provided a rare and beautiful glimpse into an unseen world, and it reminded me of an integral part of our daily lives as Christians: faith.
