Is Your Faith Riddled with Doubt

This morning I am looking out my window on our first cloudy day for quite a while. Like most people, I love sunshine and relish the long cloudless days that are often part of summer even here in the Pacific Northwest. But even more than that, I love the sunshine that radiates through the clouds, and(...)

Ed Young to Preach a Series on “Drones”

HT: Medium.com

Ed Young is an excellent communicator. His theology is terrible most of the time, but he’s got skills.

His skills led him to make the following promo video for an upcoming series………

What is your take? Bad use of metaphor? This is the same pastor who celebrated the “greatest sniper in US History.”

Thank You Thank You Thank You – Our Kickstarter Campaign Was A Success

I think that the title of this post says it all. It’s time to dance and sing and clap your hands. Together we have done it! I just wanted to extend a big thank you for those of you who contributed to our kickstarter campaign. Our target was $5,000 and we raised $5,300.  Hopefully we will(...)

Love is Always the Trip

I’m sitting on the 16th floor balcony of a Brooklyn high rise and the sun is setting over the big concrete giants that dwarf the trees around them. I’m visiting my best friend of nearly seven years and while she is sitting in class at Pratt I’m spending my time having the cool breeze blow my hair about and thanking God for the life that I am blessed to call my own. They say the best things in life are not seen but felt, that lightness in your heart you get when you’re

Little Miracles

That sounds like a paradox doesn't it? Miracles are supposed to be life changing, astounding, and magnificent. I certainly count an lots of those types of miracles over the next 11 months (and beyond). But there are also "normal miracles;" miracles that are a part of everyday life and usually taken for granted, like breathing, gravity, birth. And lastly there's something in between those two- what I like to call "little miracles". They're unexpected blessings, things unplanned for but delightful

And sometimes God shows you very specific picture of your life...

There's this house. It's really big.But not too big from the outside.The simple beauty of it is what initially attracted me.There's a front yard with freshly cut green grass.I know all the cracks and crevasses of the sidewalk and the pattern that the grass grows in.I know all of this because I've spent a long time there, longing to go in, but too scared. The house is much too nice for me to go in. I'm not worthy enough. There is too much dirt, too much filth on me. But someone sta

-Drinking afternoon coffee out of buckets is perfectly normal… still tastes great!

-You eat corn tortillas, black beans, and avocados for breakfast everyday… Your pastor proceeds to tell the congregation to bring your team avocados if they want to give you any type of gift…

-You've acquired the awesome habit of pointing with your lips.. so much more discrete! And fun.  -You have developed an adaptive blindness to small ants being in sugar, coffee, or any of your

Jesus is ALIVE

Jesus is ALIVE. I woke up last Saturday morning questioning if God really does heal people miraculously and if so why are we not seeing it happen. These are the final words from my journal entry that morning: "Lord, I have questions about healing. Please answer them. Please show me in your word what YOU say about it. I don't want to take teachings I've heard about healing out of context. I want to operate in the power you have given me." I was desperate to see the Lord move. His word says th

Do you know Obama?

"Who wants to preach Saturday?" Kesley asked. "I'll do it" I volunteered without giving it much thought. I didn't have any idea what I would say or preach on- I just knew God wanted me to do it. It was Saturday afternoon and I sat down with a cup of coffee to prepare for the message I would be giving later on that night. The small boy that had been following me around since I gave him my oatmeal at breakfast came over and stood next to me. I looked at his swollen belly and tattered clothes an

Vintage Paris - The Future is Bright

I'm moving websites and will no longer be blogging here on the World Race page!  New blog at jennamalinen.wordpress.com. Click HERE to go check it out.   

Vintage Paris. 

It’s a café here in Branson, both a coffee shop and a wine bar. Which, I must admit, is a fabulous combination. It means if I want to get away, but it is no longer a reasonable hour for caffeine, I can still come here and have a drink of a different kind.
