Dear Friends,

This morning I did a very unwise thing.  I turned the radio on, and listened to the news.  And I say it was unwise because listening to the news almost always gets me either frustrated, or discouraged - or more often than not, both of those things.  This m...

Dear Friends,

When I was in first grade, I cut my hand while out playing with my brothers.  It was a deep cut, and as we ran back to the house I remember one of my brothers saying to me, “If you don't look at the cut, it won't hurt.”  His advice worked for about 10 seco...

Dear Friends,

The past few weeks have been unusually busy at the church, and the result is that my “To Do” list of administrative tasks has continued to grow.  So this morning I left my house firmly committed to getting through at least of half of the items on the list....

Dear Friends,

This morning I was doing my daily devotional reading, and came across Genesis 12:2, which says, “I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great, and you will be a blessing to others.”  For those of you who aren't familiar wi...

Dear Friends,

I have been a fan of the author C.S. Lewis since I was in fourth grade, when I first read his book, “The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe.  It was a story that really captured my attention, especially the part when the White Witch offers Turkish Delight t...

Dear Friends, 

It's hard to believe that December is almost here.  As I looked at the calendar this morning, the reality sunk in - and I realized I needed to get busy with all that needs to be done before Christmas.  My initial response was to begin making plans for the...

Dear Friends, 

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Romans 8:38 - where the Apostle Paul writes, “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.  Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about...

Dear Friends, 

The past few days I've been thinking a lot about the “Armor of God”.  If you're unfamiliar with this term, it refers to an illustration the Apostle Paul uses in chapter 6 of his letter to the Ephesians.  Here he describes the resources we have as believer...

Dear Friends,

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about “memorials”.  The reason it’s been on my mind, is because I’m at a place in life where I need to be building more of them.  Here’s what I mean:  when God led the Israelites out of the wilderness and into the Promise...
