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?

Read "Uninsured" by Joe Heikman

I guess you really had to be there...  This Sunday was a uniquely Wildwood blend of words, music, and images throughout the service.  The focus was on naming some of the good gifts that God has given us: Justice, Wisdom, Freedom, Grace, and Community.  And the service itself was an exercise in community, as many of the poems and quotes were suggested by the congregation.  It can't really be recreated online, but to give you a taste, the script and some of the images are available here:  "Celebrating God's Good Gifts"
