In Debt to God

Living In Debt

Author: Jean Leckie
We have so much, but so many of us are not happy nor healthy.  Where did we go wrong? We are not the first ones to look like we have it all together but know deep down, we don’t.

Excessive Abundance

Author: Jean Leckie
My two year old granddaughter was blowing dandelion seeds around the schoolyard the other day as we dropped off her brother at kindergarten.  I thought:  Just what this playground needs, more dandelions!!  ... Nature is abundant, excessively so.

Interdependent Complexity

Author: Jean Leckie
Jesus lived and taught among peasant farmers and fishers.  Many of his parables drew on the experience of making a living off the land.  (Matthew 13)  Even in Jesus’ time, people knew that when we do something that affects the natural environment, we often get unexpected results.

Restorative Destruction

Author: Jean Leckie

Our continent has taken quite a pummelling this summer. Fires, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes have left many communities devastated, thousands of people homeless and millions wondering where they can even start to put life back together again. 

One woman who survived Irma in her mobile home in south Florida said it was because God protected her.  That may be a comforting thought for her but if God saved her, was God causing or allowing the destruction of all the homes around her?

How do we understand God in the face of nature’s destructive forces?
