How saturated is your life with praise?
Praise is the atmosphere of heaven, and we can enjoy that here on earth, as a Christian. The authentic and radical Christian has the advantage in this.

Looking back over the past year there are many things we can be thankful. Often times we only remember the bad things and forget that God got us through those times by his grace.

When I begin to understand the power of faith, I begin to appreciate what the Christian life is really all about.
Some people like to refer to themselves as a man or woman of faith. Yet, if you query them along that subject you discover they have no idea what a man or woman of faith is. Faith has become just a word we use when thinking of somebody who is religious. Their faith is rooted in their ...read more

No matter how long you have been a Christian there are still more wondrous things to be discovered about the Christian life. And it is the challenge of my life each day to seek more and more of what it means to be a Christian.
Matthew 26:17-35; John 20:19-31 F. W. Boreham has a very interesting essay on the subject, “Seek and ye shall Find.” He takes a different twist on the Scripture and I was fascinated by it. He tells the story of when he was young and lost a little toy. He acquired this toy by exchanging ...read more

Some people say we are living in the "new normal." I'm not sure exactly what they mean, and I don't have the time to ask, nor the desire. If the "new normal" is what I have been experiencing in the parsonage for the last several months, I'm all for it. Let it ...read more

I am not very agile when it comes to finances. Do not get me wrong, I know how to spend money; it is just that I do not know how to save money. Somewhere I lost my little piggy bank. One of my father's favorite quotes was, "A penny saved is a penny earned." It never made sense to me, ...read more

There are times when my bad hearing is a blessing. I'm not sure if I'm not listening or not hearing. It’s hard for me to tell.
