Liminal Space

Can you pray for me, Stay awake for me, Remain here, and Watch over me? Can you see the Altar bare, Let go of wondering where The pretty things went While I carry this cross for you? Can you let go of what you need Turn your focus unto me, Hear my fervent pleas From the garden of Gethsemane? Will you take this bread, Drink this wine And every single time Receive this grace In remembrance of me? Can you be bereft of me believe in me For through brief emptiness... Read More

Both Feet In

It’s a funny thing about feet in our culture. They are fully useful appendages, worth more than their weight in our well-being and mobility. But they embarrass us. Perhaps it’s their lowliness. Or perhaps the way they form over time says something about the load we carry. And how we carry it. Jesus knew this too. But he also knew that if leadership were only making decisions in the biblical boardroom and teaching a continually dumbfounded population, the disciples included, being... Read More

CHC's a link in sustainable food chain

Every Tuesday, a miracle of modern ag marketing begins rolling through the doors of Memphis Tilth on Suzette, a short street of squat, brick buildings from the 1940’s that once houses a hive of auto-repair businesses. A few residuals of the era remain but not a lick at 575 Suzette, where a well-swept concrete floor replaced the shop car lifts. A new walk-in cooler hums in the background. Farmers stride through the double-wide doors with bins of lettuces, ruby-stemmed chard,... Read More
