Worship Shopping

#ChristmasShopping. Man, what an undertaking! Truth is, I have always enjoyed going out and dealing with the crowds, the hustle and bustle, and doing Christmas shopping. However, I just recently had an experience which tried even my Buddy-the-Elf-level enthusiasm for all things Christmas. I was attempting to buy a particular product – which, until post-Christmas […]

A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

On December 8th, 1941, US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt voiced these now legendary words, “Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” American forces were joining the Second World War. What would it have […]

Is There Any Good in the World? Of Course There Is…

What makes a person walk into a crowded church building and randomly open fire? What drives an individual to take the lives of strangers from a hotel window? We struggle with these questions. We want answers! Sadly, there is an answer. The answer to all of these “why” and “what causes this” questions is the […]

How to know if we’re “measuring up” spiritually

We have been doing some car shopping lately. Great fun. (Do you sense the sarcasm?) The way I shop is I gather info on 4-5 different cars and compare and contrast them…usually to a ridiculous degree. Why do I do that? Well, primarily, I want the best value for my dollar. I have a standard, […]

How do Christians weather hurricanes?

Holding On in a Storm Harvey and Irma. Sounds like the nice old couple down the block. But, in the minds of many, those two names will forever recall far from pleasant memories. Experience is an incredible and sometimes cruel teacher. Most of us have no idea how we would react if we lost everything. […]

Hanging By a Thread 

“With you here, I am strong, no sign of weakness. With you gone, I am hanging by a thread” — (Nickel Creek – This Side) Have you ever felt stretched too thin? Ever felt like you’re about two seconds away from total emotional, mental and spiritual meltdown? How do we get there? More importantly, how […]

Back to Family

Back to School Family Let me just admit right up front: last year at this time I wrote a very similar article – not the exact same, but similar. (Yes, I’m admitting to plagiarizing myself!) But the same notions always hit me this time of year. Summer is so fondly anticipated – then it’s gone! […]

One Which Side are You?

How fickle humans can be! At one moment, we are hailing someone to be our hero. Then, in the next moment, we’re saying “away with him”! Imagine almost 2000 years ago, as Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a colt, the crowds were hailing Him as the conquering hero (Mark 11:8-10). A few days […]

Worth Dying For

History is replete with accounts of men and women fighting and giving up their lives for their beliefs. Regardless where one searches, the following are almost assuredly on the list of the most important revolutions in world history: The October Revolution – also known as the Great October Socialist Revolution, this 1917 political revolt in […]
