Getting Off the Couch

Life is unfair. Just turn on the TV, read the paper, or look at the stats on the ‘net. Murder, war, suicide, disease, slavery, it’s everywhere. It’s hard to ignore, but if anyone could be the best at ignoring it, it would be us, the North American population. Everyday we …

The Example of the Magi

Imagine. You’ve just traveled a long journey. Through barren lands, over hills, facing storms of dust, all just to reach one humble destination. You’ve been called crazy, a maniac, after all, who follows stars, claiming that they will lead to the Messiah? Finally, you arrive. You come in and ask …

Stinky Feet and Holy Ground

I’ve been running around a bit. Connecting cables, moving equipment. Responding as fast as I can to the question, “Can you give me a hand with this?” It’s not really stressful, but certainly busy. Being involved in ministry seems to be like that. I’ve been on my feet all day. …

There is no greater mystery then that which we live in. Continually, I find myself dumbfounded by the actions of people, the course of events, and the peculiarities of nature. The harder I look, the more I see, and the less I understand. The simple things often made complex, and …
