Keeping Faith In Our Crazy Up-And-Down-Ness

This is a sermon I preached recently at a very lively church about the crazy up-and-down journey of our faith. The text is 1 Kings 18-19, about my favorite prophet Elijah.

Some things I talk about are: The time I tried out for a Nickelodeon TV show, feeling forced to say ‘Praise God’ to keep up the Christianese, the first step to quitting porn, and the best wedding kiss of all time.

Quote: As They Are

God loves human beings. God loves the world. Not an ideal human, but human beings as they are; not an ideal world, but the real world. What we find repulsive in their opposition to God, what we shrink back from with pain and hostility, namely, real human beings, the real world, this is for God the ground of unfathomable love.

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer
