  • Ashes and Valentines

    Planets are colliding as you read this. Beginning today, Wednesday, a 48-hour cycle will witness Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day. Obviously, we cannot call this a seamless event. But they may be closer than we think.

  • God works for the good of all as in this story of a heavenly hole-in-one

    There were three people in heaven who decided one day to play a round of golf at the Heavenly Country Club.

    The first man stepped up to the tee, hit his drive, and watched as it headed straight for the water hazard. Just as the ball was about to land in the water, he raised his club, pointed it out over the water, and the waters parted, allowing the ball to land on dry ground. He walked out between the two columns of water and hit a perfect second shot, right in the middle of the green. One of his partners said, “Wow, good shot, Moses!”

  • A quiet reflection on sexual abuse and gun violence

    In 2001, a large task force of men and women in the Catholic Church began to be well-trained to educate people in our church about child sexual abuse.

    Once this task force was equipped, all adults who had any contact with children or youth in church programs were required to take the course called “Protecting God’s Children,” to have a background check and to faithfully read a monthly bulletin provided on line about child sexual abuse for as long as their ministry involved children or youth.

  • Book provides pastor with needed ‘jolt’ to his faith

    I have a confession. My walk with Christ received a much-needed jolt this week. This divinely-guided jolt arrived in the form of a book I purchased a few days after Christmas. 

    The book was about global missions, persecuted Christians, human suffering, doubt and the triumph of our crucified yet resurrected Lord. Sound interesting?  If your faith needs a jolt, then this book is for you. 

  • I am No. 24601 — and so are you

    In case you haven’t seen “Les Misérables” — go see it. In case you don’t fully understand the concept of the power of grace and mercy to change a human heart — go see it.

    In case you’re caught up in the drive to make others pay for their wrongs and can’t see your own — go see it.

    I heard it said once that all of life illustrates Bible doctrine, and this movie does just that.

  • Challenge yourself by praying for God to ‘put you in over your head’

    Have you heard the story of Charlie Riggs? More than 50 years ago, he gave his life to Christ and was discipled by a young man named Lorne Sanny, who himself was being discipled by Dawson Trotman, founder of the Navigators.
