  • Choose a relationship with Jesus and have the ‘best part’

    Life is full of choices. We choose daily different directions and options – everything from the color of the shirt we will wear to what we will eat for dinner.

    Everything in life is a choice, and everything we do is based on a decision. As we grow older, we sense the importance of making the right decisions. God gives us an open-book test; this life comes with an instruction manual called the Bible.

  • No need to have fear; Belief in Jesus removes death’s ‘victory, sting’

    When people ask me what I do at my job at the newspaper, specifically what topics I write about, I tell them the shorthand version: old people, dead people and God.

    Actually, I cover a lot more than that, but those three — old people, dead people and God — are the three areas that seem to fall to me. This past week I wrote stories about four people who had died, and only one of them I would consider old.

    Of those four people, I attended three memorial services. As I write this, I have two services to attend in the coming week.

  • Does your church show the compassion of Jesus?

    Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Jesus.  And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them.’ ” (Luke 15:1-2)

    This passage could be described as classic Jesus. In these two verses, we find Jesus doing what Jesus does best in Luke’s gospel — loving the social outcast and offending the religious establishment. I often wonder why many of us in the church seem to do the opposite?

  • Family connects us forever – for better or worse

    Every family begins with a marriage. Two weeks ago, my family got together in California to celebrate our parents’ marriage with a huge party for their 60th anniversary.

    It was a 1950s-themed party, minus the poodle skirts and black leather jackets.

    My sister transformed her garage into a ’50s-style combination soda shoppe and hot rod garage, complete with a juke box in the corner playing classic rock ’n’ roll music.
