The Light Shines in the Darkness

Dec 23 2014

The Christmas story is filled with contrasts and extremes.  On one hand Christ birth brought some extreme joy, while others were filled with terror.  One of my favorite opening sentences in all of literature is from Charles Dickens, “A Tale of Two Cities.”  “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”


It doesn’t take a genius to look around us and see that we have a problem. It is not about the specifics of any one incident, but rather it is an environment that breeds contempt and distrust. It is ridiculous to think that we can either ignore or deny that there is a problem with racism in our country today.

Remembering My Father

Dec 09 2014

As we prepare to say our last goodbyes in this life to my dad, I have been overwhelmed by a flood of emotions and memories.

God does not give us a spirit of fear, but from where does it come? It begins with our experiences in life. We begin with a childlike faith, but as the disappointments and heartaches come our way, so do our fears.

A Great God

Pressing On

There are 2 dangers that we face in life as followers of Christ Jesus. On one hand, we can become so discouraged by the trials of life, our apparent lack of progress were simply the state of the world around us, but we simply stop trying, while on the other hand, we may think that we have arrived and therefore we can rest on our accomplishments.
