Book Review- Saturate Field Guide

What do you believe about discipleship and evangelism? Do you think it is a job for few paid professionals or the hyper-religious?  Even if you do believe it is the role of every believer, do you feel equipped to train up someone else in the fullness of the gospel? My views on this have changed […]

7 Reasons You Should Support the Work of 20 Schemes

I recently had the privilege of observing  the work of 20 Schemes, a church planting ministry in Scotland. Working out of Scotland’s housing schemes -think American housing projects on a bigger scale, they build church planting teams, train leaders and develop resources.  We believe that building healthy, gospel-preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities will bring […]

Inheritance Part 2- Citizens and Heirs

Most believers and non-believers alike understand that putting ones faith in Jesus somehow connects you to the ‘family of God.’ Maybe they have even seen a “I am the daughter of King” Facebook meme, but do they really understand what that means… do you understand what that means?

Transitional Housing is a Holy Pursuit

A Brief Biblical Theology of Hospitality This post doesn’t emerge from the part of me that finds it necessary to hurriedly defend my actions with Scripture.  This post comes out of a gentle wandering with the Lord through the Scriptures as I asked the Lord what in the world being hospitable had to do with […]



Ahhh it’s that time of year when many contemplate and some participate in the monastic and self-depriving season of Lent.

Despite that […]

The story of Jacob and Esau in the Bible is one of the more difficult ones.  Well at least it has been for me.  It is the story of twin brothers. Esau, the  rough around the edges, older brother was his father’s favorite. He was also entitled to a great inheritance as the first born. […]

Hope from Disorder

Hope from Disorder

Our lives often seem chaotic – at least mine does. If people saw me, day in and day out, they would agree. At Loaves and Fishes, our clients’ lives often seem characterized by chaos. The key to understanding that disorder is to look back to the fall. This requires us to accept that disorder is […]



Reconciling People – God, People – People, People to Creation God reconciled us to himself through Jesus. Because of that we can live reconciled lives meaning not only the end of estrangement but the enjoyment of acceptance, communication and relationship. We can enjoy increased peace and harmony in our lives if we seek to restore […]

Universal Identity

Universal Identity

Born in the image of our God and King every human being is deserving of dignity and has inherent worth. Born descendants of Adam we are all subject to sin, sickness and separation from God… We are all broken.  We have all fallen short of the glory of God and are ALL in recovery from […]
