The kettle is a big deal

Don’t forget the kettle. The Salvation Army as they do each year is having their drive. Apparently, the Christmas season brings out the giving spirit in many and this wonderful organization actually depends on the generosity of millions to keep their mission strong throughout the year. If you’re like me though, you…

The wonder of the incarnation

On the night of His birth, thousands of angels just outside the city, serenaded shepherds proclaiming good news for all people. The sound waves must have shook the hills. Several months earlier, lights in the sky compelled a handful of astrologers from the East to head West. Sometime later thousands of miles from home, they found…

The goodness of God

This look says it all. The pie was yummy! On Thanksgiving, we all probably indulged a little too much. But aren’t you glad that you can’t overeat it when it comes to consuming the true meaning of Christmas? It’s like your soul has the capacity to soak in the lights, the sounds, the smells and especially the Truth…

Thanks a million

When I was a kid, quite often my aunt would express her thanks to a friend with the phrase, “Thanks a million!” I wondered if she really meant that? Giving thanks a million times is a lot! Is she really going to take the time to thank her friend  that many times? Surely not! But how about 50,000 times? Our church is going to…

Thankful for your service

As an exercise on being thankful, a speaker recently challenged us to write out a list of things of which we’re thankful. Just for fun, create a list as long as your age. I wondered if I could come up with 65 things. I did. In fact, it took far less time than I thought it would, and as I suspected, just thinking about some of these things,…

Needed: More world changers

Dr. Alan Cureton, president of Northwestern University is a mentor and friend to us all at Northwestern Media. He sent an email out today re: the senseless acts of violence we’ve been witnessing including the most recent killings at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg.  I hope you will take time to read it and pray for those…

The world serious

As I watch the World Series, I think about how we Americans use sports as an escape to help take the sting out of the tougher things that we have to go through. I do it. So does most everyone I know. Occasionally, ESPN will do a human interest story about a young person battling a terminal illness who is found rooting for his favorite team…

Readers are leaders

I participated in the Read Across America at Linn Grove Elementary for the fourth straight year. It’s a simple idea where members of the community take fifteen minutes and read aloud to students. I love it! It’s been often said that “readers are leaders” but you may be asking, how do children become readers? …

Hope brings joy

Hope brings joy and joy makes all the difference. Whad’ya think? Is it true? Is it true, for you? I heard a preacher once say that in a believer’s life at any one time, we have to deal with “good and bad things” simultaneously. There are things that are easy to swallow. Good news from a relative, the anticipation…

Walk carefully

He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly… with your God This well-known verse was given new meaning to me recently as I was listening to my pastor share at my local church. The “a-HA” experience came from the translation

Do I have to earn God’s love?

To some degree, everybody grows up in a world where love is conditional. I think we have a hard time not projecting that onto God as if He can’t be any different.
