    We all know Micah 6:8, but there's a lot more to the message than just a T-shirt slogan.

    In the marathon subculture, T-shirts are everything. As a runner, you become a billboard for 26 miles, or 13, or 6, or in my case 3 miles.

    Launching from Jesus' call to love our enemies and be perfect, this sermon speaks of love and welcoming.

    Christmas is filled with details large and small, but the important detail is God's incredible love in Jesus Christ who came to save us.

    One of my childhood Christmas highlights was putting up the crèche. I don’t know why my Norwegian family called the nativity set by its French name, but we did. First we would put the wooden framework in place. In back of it was a music box which we wound to play a tired version of ...read more

    In a society where half of marriages end in divorce, what do Jesus' words mean for us? And what's heaven going to look like when most have been married multiple times?

    A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, "Ma'am, what are the grounds for your divorce?" She replied, "About four acres with a nice house in the middle." "No," he said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?" "Concrete, brick and mortar," she ...read more
