I hung out with some of my alumni recently.  (If you’re new here…I worked in college ministry for 12 yrs.)  My guuuuurl, Tia noticed me lookin’ all sad and dejected.  When we talked later, I told her it wasn’t about anything she’d imagined, but just regular ole shame.  The type of shame that makes you wanna […]

A few years ago, I worked for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship as a Regional Black Campus Ministries Coordinator.  That meant I was in charge of overseeing all of IV’s black chapters, black staff & non-black staff working with black students in MI, OH, W.

York & I in matching yellow IN 1995! I favored the brown lip liner.  Unfortunately.

In case you hadn’t noticed I added a new category above: Mentoring.  Recently I started meeting -in person- a wonderful young lady we’ll call T.  She was a freshman in one of my on campus Bible studies way back in the day.  I’m talkin’ 2004, y’all.  She’s a beautiful soul.  Additionally, I am also beginning […]

I am reading -and loving- R. York Moore’s newest book, Making All Things New: God’s Dream For Global Justice.  Because York is my current mentor, married to one of my very bestest friends, my former InterVarsity staff worker & the one who led me to Christ and discipled me, it seemed fitting to mention that outright.  Also, […]

Let’s face it, y’all.  It’s easier for us to believe that God is a pissed-off, hot-tempered, sandwich-board-wearing fire-bringer than a kind, compassionate, slow-to-anger, grace-bringer. This morning I was trolling through an old journal and I found an interesting entry I wrote this past February.  At the time, I was attending a Spiritual Formation retreat with […]
