Stooped down

God is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like our God, the one who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down…raising the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap… (Psalm 113) And God stooped down in the birth of Jesus.

How do you hold the mystery of glory stooped down?

A table in the wilderness

Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? Even though God struck the rock so that waters gushed out and torrents overflowed, can God also give bread, or provide meat for his people? Psalm 78:19-20

Where do you find nourishment these days? Do you question God’s ability to provide?


In Genesis 18, Abraham and Sarah receive three visitors with generous hospitality. Both, the three visitors as well as Abraham and Sarah are cared for. The Psalmist asks in Psalm 78:19 “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness?”. Hospitality is shaped by culture, values and faith.

What does hospitality look like these days when we cannot host each other in the ways we are used to? What creative ways to extend hospitality have you seen or come up with?
