Will the Next President Win by a Mudslide? 

Written on May 24, 2016 at 1:01 pm, by

I’m curious as to what the next few months will bring to America as the political ovens begin to heat up.  The vitriol (yes mom, I use a big word for me) seems to have only begun.  Likely, our land will be scorched from both indignation and revelation. Shall we turn the tide? My reason […]

Following God: If or Yes? 

Written on May 10, 2016 at 2:05 pm, by

I urge each of us to yield to those common sense factors which sound good to our own ears; but in reality are excuses to refrain from trusting God.  Our serving, our loving, our reaching, even our giving tend to be guarded when these should rather be executed. We practice as if God is one big […]

Maybe We Could Break Away From Being The Way We Are

I know.  I know that is a rather strange, maybe obscure, title.  It isn’t exactly how I think it should be; but the thread is.  I wish to address those of us who go through our days as if we give them little thought as to how they might advance from dull routine to incredible […]

Why Some Christians Don’t Pray 

Written on April 26, 2016 at 11:24 am, by

I speak not from criticism of a few; but rather, first, from experience of me.  For years as the one person in the church who should have been praying, I was not.  I did not. And I can’t explain the precise whys or why-nots; but a slight glimpse into this oddity might open some of […]

A Word Of Hope To Parents 

Written on April 19, 2016 at 12:15 pm, by

I cheer you on, moms and dads.  Use those constant negative infractions which naturally come your child’s way to train them for a desperately needed attribute for life. I’m not sure exactly how accurate my assessment is, but I point out that we seem to live in a time of perpetual quitters.  We quit relationships. […]

Why Are We So Afraid To Cut Loose And Live? 

Written on April 12, 2016 at 4:24 pm, by

The subtle rigors of walking upon earth bind us, bind all of us, in ways which we mostly do not detect.  Yet, we are unconscious to our missing out.  We could even be found to be quite prideful of our limitations; unaware, but nonetheless limited. Whether it be relational, political, or financial, ideas which would […]

Sorta Kinda Wanna Believe God 

Written on April 5, 2016 at 10:40 am, by

It seems that the starkest faith issue facing us is whether we believe God.  I say this fully aware that we religious sorts have mantled and dismantled things like who handles the missions money, what qualifies a Sunday School teacher, and when, where, if, and how to take communion, Beneath our sub-concerns is a bigger […]

How To Live A Life Of Good Fortune

Written on March 29, 2016 at 10:18 am, by

Why is it that some people seem to have all of the right breaks when others can’t seem to be as blessed?  Is it a matter of the luck of the draw?  Or, the spin of the wheel?  Or, that proverbial silver spoon?  What separates the haves from the have-nots? I didn’t know this for […]

Believe Past What You Can See 

Written on March 15, 2016 at 1:26 pm, by

Faith sees.  You know that don’t you?  Faith peers through the visible veil into the true “what is yet possible to become” portion of our very practical lives. Faith is not a game of Guessmanship where the one whose best guesses come true wins.  Faith brings about.  It creates.  It is a non-fleshly dynamic that believes […]
