I think a lot about the purity of things…   Not to sound like an old fuddy-duddy, but I often think back to when I was 6 or 7 years old and when I be the first one awake in our home and I would turn on the television and there was only static. And […]

It’s happening right now somewhere… Someone is facing what seems to be or actually is an impossible situation or decision. Deciding to start chemo again or not. Resisting drugs or alcohol after being clean for a significant amount of time. To go see a lawyer about a divorce. To quit or try again. To forgive. […]

There was a woman who had suffered for years. But it wouldn’t go away. She had tried everything. She was alone. She was out of money and it wasn’t getting better. The doctors had no answers. She was at the end of her rope. And it’s not just her. Men and women, young and old […]

But as you know sometimes we […]

“For the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Remember the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast, and how the prince became a beast? An old woman comes to his castle asking for shelter and he is so repulsed […]

So one Sunday just before worship started, this church member named Barb came up to me and stopped me. And she joyfully said, “Christopher! I was reading my Bible last night. While I was reading, I came across this verse and I thought of you…You’re our letter!!” I thanked her and then looked at the […]

I have never physically been in a desert or wilderness. I flew over one once in Africa. I have read about them. But I have been in the wilderness. I know the wilderness. And I suspect many of you do too. Let’s talk about the wilderness… In the Bible, the wilderness is an arid, dangerous, […]

So I know that I am late in grasping the phenomenon of the television show The Biggest Loser (the finale was last night). But having watched just a few episodes, I wanted to share some interesting spiritual connections. As you may know it is a reality show where people who are dangerously overweight, with professional […]

Once upon a time, I sat next to a girl in a class in which the desks were two-person desks. Often the teacher would go around the room and randomly ask quiz-type questions of students. And often when the girl I sat next to would hesitate or seem to be stuck, I would lean closer […]
