Burn the ships

Embracing the struggle

A wise sage once quipped, “If you think you have all the answers, you haven’t heard all the questions.” I think there is great wisdom in that statement. In fact, I would go so far as to say that God has orchestrated a life that poses questions to which there are no easy answers. It makes me wonder if he does this so that…

The power of being misunderstood

A pumpkin because of it’s bland taste (until you add sugar) has to be a vegetable doesn’t it? It’s not sweet or tangy so it can’t be a fruit, right? Wrong! A pumpkin is actually a fruit and it’s designation has nothing nothing to do with taste. It’s a fruit because by definition, it has the structure…

Faith that defies logic

As I write this post, a young mother and friend of mine suffers in the hospital and may be losing a very long battle with breast cancer. She is a model citizen of the Kingdom of God; a true saint in every sense of the word. Her family clings to hope that she’ll recover, but at the moment it doesn’t look good. Why is this happening?…

20/20 vision

Ok, it’s football season. My apologies to you Bear, Viking and Packer fans but I wasn’t raised here and will not be talking about your favorite teams. I’m from Kansas City so as you’d expect, I’m a die hard Chiefs fan. This year, more than any other in the past 50 years, I’m rooting for what others…

School days

School days, school days, dear old Golden Rule days… The Golden Rule. Hmmmm. Where did that idea come from and what does it mean? Turns out the Golden Rule is in the Bible. It’s part of what has become known as the “Sermon on the Mount” chronicled in the NT gospels of Matthew and Luke. The lesson of the Golden…

Breakin’ out of the holy huddle

So how do you break out of your holy huddle? You know about the holy huddle, don’t you. That’s the treadmill of activity that keeps you so involved in “church activities” that you don’t have time to cultivate relationships with people who see life differently than you do. Here’s how we form…

Rainy days and Mondays

(I wrote this post on a rainy Monday morning this week. You probably can’t tell it by this picture, but the flowers on our back deck were getting quite drenched at the time.) A popular song by the Carpenter’s taught us that “Rainy Days and Mondays ALWAYS get me down.” The song came out in 1971, the year I graduated…
