My Visit to Phil’s Music Room

October 31st, 2016 No comments

Kristi and Phil

Over the weekend, my family and I took Radio Friend Phil up on a longstanding invitation to visit his music room in his home.  This special space is the product of decades of vinyl collecting and meticulous audio gear curating.  He even has a sofa set up at the exact sweet spot for the listener to clearly hear every detail the recording artist intended.  The results are amazing!  Phil sat us down with a mug of his favorite hot tea and played a variety of records for us: Franz Schubert, Herbie Hancock, Billie Holiday, Credence Clearwater Revival, Pat Metheny and The Beatles.  We fell in love all over again with familiar songs like “Here Comes The Sun” because we heard parts we never heard before…all because of how well Radio Friend Phil presented the music.

It got me thinking about how I present things.  Am I taking great care of the material like Phil cares for his vinyl?  Do I make sure that I set up my words as well as Phil sets up his gear?  And do I make sure that my listener is as comfortable and well-positioned to hear the heart of what I’m saying like Phil does with that comfy sofa and hot tea?

Ephesians 5 talks a lot about living intentionally and graciously as we interact with others.  I love the phrase in verse 15 that say “Be very careful, then, how you live.”  It’s something that comes to my mind a lot.  God has been so very good to us!  I want to honor and love Him by cheerfully choosing to be very careful how I live to bring Him glory. Verse 2 gets to the heart of it, “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling fragrance.”

matthew-5-16

I was baptized at Hershey Free Church when I was in junior high.  It just so happened that the day my church was holding the event was on Halloween, and I was at a point in my life where my school was my mission field.  This was back in the day when “In The Light” by Charlie Peacock and “Be The One” by Al Denson were newer hit songs, not Classics — and “Shine” by Newsboys didn’t even exist yet!  I carried my Bible with me every day at school and invited friends to youth group events.  I was on fire for God on couldn’t think of a more powerful day to be baptized than on Halloween.  I was into Frank Peretti books and learning about spiritual warfare…being baptized on Halloween was as good as it could possibly get!  It was like taking the darkest day and making it stand for my dedication to Jesus, which I figured would send a loud and clear message to the devil.

The Bible verse I shared before taking the plunge was Matthew 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

If you’re in total darkness, even just one match is a game changer!  One very small light will always defeat darkness.  “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5

In the Bible, “Light” is life.  It guides our path.  It purifies.  It brings hope.  It is closely associated with God’s presence and favor.  Jesus is called the “Light of the World”.  Isn’t it such good news that God called us out of the darkness and into His marvelous light?!  We’ll sing about it with a light-themed playlist on this Sunday’s Praise & Worship Show from 6-10 a.m. and I hope you’ll join me.

Hi there,

Here’s the “Good Good Father” devotional  

The Hillsong United song “Rhythms Of Grace” is rooted in Matthew 11:28-30The Message (MSG)

28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Feel free to get in touch,

Found in Translation

October 3rd, 2016 No comments

I love having a Bible app on my phone.  I like the access to a variety of devotional plans and checking in to see the Verse Of The Day.  The other morning, I opened the app and saw some brand new phrases that I never read before:

“For God is sheer beauty,

all-generous in love,

loyal always and ever.”

WOW!  I though, “I’ve grown up in the church and never heard this one before!”  What amazing phrasing!  I couldn’t believe that this verse wasn’t more popular.  I glanced at the reference and realized that it was a very familiar passage: Psalm 100:5.  In fact, this is a verse that many worship songs are rooted in–songs we play regularly on WJTL.  We usually know the verse in this wording:

“For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;

His faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Then it hit me: I left my app displaying verses in the Message Translation, when I usually read in NIV.  Just viewing the passage in a different wording can make the Bible come alive all over again.  If you need a fresh word from God, I encourage you to look up some of your favorite verses in a translation you don’t usually use.  After all, Hebrews 4:12 says “the word of God is alive and active.”  (Or, in the Message Translation: “God means what He says.  What He says goes.“)

Our Guide Through Life’s Maze

Fall has just begun, and it feels like the season in full swing already.  So many of us have been itching to get to cooler weather and its cornucopia of harvest-themed activities.  High on the list for families: corn mazes!  There are lots of options all over the listening area.  Click here for a list. Yesterday, my family and I went to Newport to visit Butcher’s Family Fun Farm.  I, personally, was happy to sit in the corn box with my son, Josiah, instead of panicking and guessing the turns through endless rows of corn stalks.

One of my biggest weaknesses is directions.  My internal compass seems to have been faulty since day one.  Needless to say, I’m not the person you want to follow into a corn maze!  If I go in, it’s gotta be with someone who I am confident can get us back out.  Life can be that way.  Some of us seem to navigate it more easily and effortlessly…but we all have a trustworthy guide.  No matter how deeply lost in “life’s corn maze” you feel, listen for God’s loving voice to help you find your way.

What kind of bug would you be?

September 13th, 2016 No comments

Kristi and Butterfly

I recently visited the new Butterfly Atrium at the Hershey Gardens with my family.  It’s a wonderful place, perfectly setup as a walk-through experience inside a butterfly’s world.  There were colorful flowers and plants, a little stream, and big chunks of fruit set out, where butterflies lounged and filled up on nectar.  There were all kinds of butterflies: from teeny tiny ones to ginormous.  We walked through on the path, watching each step since the butterflies roam free, flitting to and from wherever they please.  While may were in flight from here to there at any given time, we found some hanging from flowers, others clung to the windows, and a few liked to plop down right in the middle of the path.  Everyone carefully approached to get a close look at their wings and take some pictures of these amazing creatures.  I was thinking how special the experience was…and how different it would be if it were any other bug.  I mean, nobody wants to visit all sorts and sizes of spiders in their natural habitat!  There’s something about butterflies that makes us feel comfortable and even a little mystified.  Then…out of no where, a butterfly landed right on my nose!  And do you know what happened?  Nobody shooed it off.  No one rolled up a news paper to swat it.  And I had zero urges to flick it away.  Instead, everyone responded with incredible delight, treating me as specially chosen by this butterfly.  Phones and cameras emerged and we all giggled until it finally detached its sticky little feet from my face and flew away.  It would have been so different if it were any other bug.

In the days after that experience, I’ve wondered how people would respond to me if I were a bug.  Are there qualities about me that sting like a bee?  or smell like a stink bug?  or cause concern like a mosquito?  Do I have a problem with boundaries like ants at a picnic or drone on loudly like a locust? I hope not!  I really want to be like a butterfly.  I want people to feel at ease–and even special if I come close.  And the good news is: God wants us to be like that, too!  The fruit of His Spirit certainly makes us beautifully attractive: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  (Galatians 5:22-23)  None of those are scary or intimidating–and we are marked by those qualities because of Jesus living in our hearts.  If you don’t feel like those things describe you very well, I’ve got more good news: Jesus Christ makes us into a new creation.  (2 Corinthians 5:17)  The old stuff is gone–and we are transformed.  That’s something butterflies can relate to! 🙂
