    Two words have been on my mind a lot lately: posture and presence. They may seem minuscule compared to other words, but they actually pack a big punch.

    And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20, ESV)

    This past Sunday, Paul Briggs helpfully put Psalm 130 in front of us as a church. I confess I’m not a big fan of the dentist experience, so Paul’s humor about the tooth pain definitely got my attention (very sorry for you, Paul—it surely wasn’t funny then). We might indeed “cry out” for lots of reasons in our life, whether excruciating toothache or excruciating emotional pain. But the cry of Psalm 130:1, “Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!” is a cry altogether different.

    I recently read a book by an FBI hostage negotiator and listened to an interview of a military interrogator. The common thread between the two is the use of empathy in their jobs. Empathy isn’t something I associate with either the FBI or the military. They are fascinating.
