It really doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. You could be a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and find that you’ll agree with a Philadelphia Eagles fan, at least on this one point. Even the redneck and the socialite will find common ground here. I think we can all agree. During this COVID-19 […]

301 years ago, Robinson Crusoe, widely considered the First English Novel, was released in England to enormous praise.  Audiences loved the simple story of a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad.  Poor Crusoe encounters prisoners, mutineers, and even cannibals during his adventurous stay.  Yet the first foes he would face would not come […]

Today’s Blog is a guest post from my wife, Heather. Enjoy! “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as […]

A Baptism in India

November 16, 2015

It was a rural village. When Heather and I arrived in the farming community about 25 miles outside of the municipal town of Salur, it seemed the entire village was on high alert. When I say this please understand that I am not exaggerating in the slightest; and it had nothing to do with our […]

Movie Review – Light in the Darkness

January 6, 2014

I’ve never reviewed a movie on my blog before. This fact seems a bit odd since my blog has developed into a hodgepodge of theology, practical ministry, marriage & parenting, humor, book reviews and random other topics of unrelated origin.
