In 1 Cor 1:18-25 (and beyond), Paul writes about the difference between the wisdom of God and the wisdom of the world.  He says that the message of the Cross looks like foolishness by some standards and that God intentionally chose a path that looks like weakness.  And yet "God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom and God's weakness is stronger than human strength."  What does it mean to choose God's "foolishness" instead of worldly wisdom?  And what might that look like in action?

Read "Wise As Fools" from Joe Heikman (a natural choice to talk on the subject of foolishness...)

The Bible is full of miracle stories, from Abraham and Sarah conceiving a child at the ages of 99 and 90 to Jesus healing the blind, deaf, and lame.  These stories challenge our modern sensibilities--did those things really happen or are they just stories?  Can we expect miracles to happen in our own lives?  And what does the existence (or non-existence) of miracles say about the nature of our world and our purpose(s) in it?  

Read "Beyond Belief" from Joe Heikman (spoiler: he doesn't answer all of those questions...)

During the season of Lent, we often talk about the practice of fasting.  We usually understand fasting as an exercise in self-discipline, "giving something up" as a sacrifice to God, to train our minds and hearts and wills to do what God wants instead of what I want.  And that's all well and good.  But the choices that Jesus made on his journey to the cross went beyond spiritual discipline; his fasting in the wilderness made himself physically weak.  Jesus chose vulnerability over security, weakness over strength.  Do we dare to follow in that path?
