  • Aiming our Thanksgiving

    Two or three years ago, on a Sunday afternoon, I was having lunch at one of our local restaurants with another family from our church. When the time came to pay the bill, the waiter told us that the bill for our lunch had already been paid. Someone else sitting somewhere else in the restaurant decided to do something incredibly kind and generous for which I am still very thankful. They did not even want to receive praise or thanks for doing this, so they kept their identity a secret. I found myself wanting to thank someone but had nowhere to aim my thanks.

  • Honoring the pastor

    Psalm 23:1, 1 Cor. 11:1

    There are annual days that are observed within most of our local churches. We celebrate Choir Day, Missionary Day, Usher Day, Men and Women’s Day, and Senior Day. But when you think about it, these are opportunities for us to look back over the past year and examine whether we have been the men and women, the choir, ushers, missionaries, and seniors, that the Lord requires us to be. If not, then why the celebration.

  • Grace for the broken

    When I was about two years old, I bopped my baby brother with a wooden hammer and once put a wad of gum in my sister’s hair.

    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth-grade I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.

    Once I shoplifted a bottle of Compound W wart remover and a Yardley Lip Slicker lipstick from Thrifty Drug Store.
