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 […]

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO TRUST LEADERS?

February 13, 2017

The American mind has a very difficult time trusting those in authority.  Perhaps we were more traumatized by the tyranny of King George or the dictatorial demands of authoritarian regimes from which we migrated than previously expected.  Perhaps words like Watergate, Lewinski, WMDs, and deleted emails have broken down the walls of trust.  Perhaps too […]

The Truth About Suffering

July 4, 2016

(An explanation of Ecclesiastes Chapter 4) There it was – only inches from my eyes – the document that I’ve heard about since my days in Mr. Bowman’s 4th grade class.  Only a few weeks ago I stood in the National Archives Museum with my wife and three children looking through bullet-proof glass at a […]

Is it Possible to Know?

Ephesians 5:17-21 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Thankfulness: A Powerful Stress Buster

September 30, 2015

  “In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.” Psalm 56:11  I am a big fan of old musicals. In them, the Von Trapp family sings their way out of Nazi Austria, a lowly flower girl learns to talk like a proper lady, sailors have […]

September 24, 2015

People are frequently confused about the difference between a paradox and an oxymoron. And often times the reason for this is because both involve words which seem contradictory to each other.  In the case of oxymoron, it’s often two words where each words definition is completely contradictory – and yet are commonly used in our English […]

An Amazing God

“Return unto they rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.” – Psalm 116:7 As I pulled up to the stop light in my old Honda minivan (this van was an absolute answer to prayer just about 8-weeks before this story), a young high school student pulled up right next to […]

Counting All Things as Loss

September 1, 2015

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,” Philippians 3:8 It seems that from the time we are children, we are encouraged […]
