March Madness is not a laughing matter

March Madness is here. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It’s when 68 of the best teams in the country go head to head in a single elimination tournament leaving just one as national champion.  Watching March Madness used to be my favorite thing to do in an easy chair with a mug of diet root beer. However, believe it…

Leaving a legacy

A truly lasting legacy is only found in the footprint of one with genuine humility and razor-like focus. Such was the life of Rev. Billy Graham, who went home to be with Jesus on February 21st at the age of 99. Most will know him as the greatest evangelist of our time but he was also the second president of Northwestern College and the visionary…

Compassion for the poor is something we all need

As our listeners grow in their compassion by responding to the Matthew 25 command of Jesus, I find myself dreaming big of what might be possible as we put the needs of others ahead of our own. You’re familiar of the Matthew 25 passage, aren’t you? Check it out if you need a refresher. One commentator writing about this oft…

The perfect church

The late Howard Hendricks, esteemed Bible teacher and former President of Dallas Theological Seminary said this, “If you find the perfect church, don’t join it you’ll ruin it.” If you don’t get the humor in that one-liner, read his quote again then wait for it. If you do get it, there’s at…

The face behind the mic

It happens all the time. Listeners meet our on air personalities and the first thing they say is something like, “you don’t look anything like you sound!” We heard that a lot recently at our “Life 101.9 Movie Matinee.”  In my first radio interview, my boss told me I had a face made for radio! (OK, I made…

Groundhog Day has meaning for us all

This week, I am reminded of the 1993 movie “Groundhog Day.”  In this cult classic, a TV news reporter played by Bill Murray, inspires us to believe that though we are all creatures of habit, we can choose to change. Like the song says, we can change who we are. We can live intentionally. One of the things I’d like to…

Check up from the neck up

A wise old sage once said that if you want to improve your attitude that it all starts with an assessment of what you put into your mind.  You need to give yourself a “check up, from the neck up”. Apparently, a positive mental attitude starts with feeding your mind those thoughts that are true and edifying. This makes sense…

Keeping the creche out

Each New Years Day afternoon, it is our tradition to take down the Christmas decorations. And so it was again this year. As I glanced at the Nativity set one final time, I wondered if we could just leave it up this year. What prompted the thought was the joy I have found over the years through periodic visits to the family room where a small…

Are you a thermometer or a thermostat?

At the time I am writing this, it’s three degrees below zero with a wind chill index of -17. The room I am in is chilly and not all that comfortable. Guess it’s time to adjust that thermostat. And speaking of thermostats, permit me to share one of my favorite Christian metaphors. It may give us some food for thought as we contemplate…

Are we there yet?

Do you ever find yourself asking God, “Are we there yet?” or “Are we near the time when your Son will come back?” It’s a fair question to ask the Father and one that I have asked more than once. The Bible tells us that there is a time when he will return. It also says that we won’t know exactly when…
