I Should Read This

I Should Read This

Images May be Disturbing (Not Really)

Images May be Disturbing (Not Really)

Why do we look when we we’re warned “Caution, some images may be disturbing to sensitive viewers.” Who wants to be disturbed? It seems we do. There’s something weird about us that’s drawn to look at car crashes, violence, and scary movies. I don’t get it....

Why Are You So Different?

Why Are You So Different?

When Christ takes control of your life, something supernatural happens. It’s almost like magic, but magic implies something other than the power of God. No, it’s the Holy Spirit, which out ranks any other force in the universe. An authentic change takes place in your...

Can You Believe This Guy?

Can You Believe This Guy?

I have a friend who’s very nice. He’ll smile when he sees you, he’ll ask how you’re doing, and he’ll ask about your family. He’ll compliment you. He’ll offer to do things for you. He won’t rest until he’s exhausted every avenue to make sure you’re content. He drives...

Who Are You Shaping?

Who Are You Shaping?

You never know who you’re impacting. I was nine. I didn’t know anything. All I knew was I liked baseball, brownie pudding, and the Beatles. (50 years later, not much has really changed.) By the time you’re nine, much of your personality and character has been formed....

The Terrible Drivers and You

The Terrible Drivers and You

Slow drivers. Fast drivers. Clueless drivers. Do they drive you crazy? I half-jokingly posted a question asking if anyone ever talked to other drivers, knowing the answer. Of course we do. We all do. And it’s usually derogatory. I sometimes wonder why someone would...

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

It’s always an adventure in the neighborhood I walk every day. It might be an aggressive dog or just a friendly one. It might be a bustling garage sale or giggling kids on bikes. But through all the various activities, the neighborhood has become very familiar. I know...

Remembering Gathering

Remembering Gathering

Just a month ago we gathered. Remember that? We thought nothing of it. We always gathered. Gathering was a way of life. Gather, gather, gather. It was what we did without hesitancy or consideration of the possibility that we would ever NOT gather. We built our...

Forgiveness is Our Biggest Need

Forgiveness is Our Biggest Need

It ultimately defies our limited logic, and it’s at the center of our very being. The Bible says “None is righteous, no, not one;” (Romans 3:10) So the gift of no guilt, no remorse, no depression? What could be more important? What could be more powerful? And it comes...

Corona Era Kids in 2020

Corona Era Kids in 2020

Kids in the 50s had the scare of nuclear holocaust. In the 60s we worried about political assassinations, riots, and getting drafted to Viet Nam. The 70s had their share of issues, too. Acid rain, the Ayatollah, disco, you name it. The 80s had the threat of aids, the...

Peace in Crisis

We could all use a little peace. Okay, a lot of peace. The world can seem less peaceful every day. There’s a reason for that. It’s why it’s called “the world.” Jesus told us, “In this world you will have trouble.” So, knowing this to be true, we’re no longer surprised...

I went to a store, whose name you’d recognize, to return shoes that didn’t fit. The Customer Service lady greeted me warmly and listened intently to my concern. She asked if I had my receipt. I apologized because I did not. She said, “No problem! Just pick out another...
