When The Sky Weeps

It turned cold this morning; I had to put on a jacket. The forecast is for more of the same, with cloudy skies and rain. It makes the earth feel sad. Then again, I suppose it is appropriate. Today and tomorrow our church mourns the passing of one of its members. I didn’t know him...

Copy of Kung Fu Fighting

Of course, I have taken Karate. My one two hour class didn’t give me the skills to compete with these guys, but I learned enough to run away. Whenever you watch a tv show or movie where someone knows a martial art’s skill, it seems everyone else in the show does too. It’s like musicals,...

Cereal and a Pound of Sugar

A diet like that would reek havoc on your body, so we stay away from them, or at least our wives hide the sugar. Sugar is as a bad as cocain. It is very addictive, and once you start down that path it can lead to all kinds of physical problems.  “You need milk, not...

Big Guys, Little Punch

Fighting rarely solves anything, unless the Lord is fighting for you. This past Sunday I spoke about Joshua’s admonition to the people of Israel not to mix with the people of the land. He knew full well that marrying the Canaanites would lead the people to worship other gods. They would chose carved rock instead...

Why? Why Me Lord?!

There are times I have felt this way. Sometimes the problems seem small, other times they have been overwhelming, but the pain has always been mine, and the question deep and real. Where is God when things don’t go the way we want them to? When everything is going well, God was as close as...

STOP IT!

Watched a video clip last night with Bob Newhart. He was a counselor who could fix all your problems with two words, Stop It! A lot of our behavioral problems are the result of early childhood trauma, not enough love, and the lack of appropriate touch. But despite our history we are responsible for our...

Headaches and a Toilet Bowl

Yes, it is exactly the picture that just shot through your mind. 5:30 am I woke up with a terrible headache. Stumbling through the house, I made it too the couch. I don’t know why I thought the couch would be better than being in bed. Maybe it let me groan without waking Rebecca. Porthos...

Identity Theft

Identity theaft isn’t new, it is the oldest sin in the world (and you thought it was prostitution). In Genesis we are taught that man is created in the image of God, but that image (our identity) was stolen by the serpent when he deceived Eve in the garden. The cost to mankind has been...

Wow! Accident? I Think Not!

God seldom leads in a straight line, and the line he has led me along looks like a spighetti bowl.   I am the Pastor of a Mennonite Church, but that’s not where I started. According to my mother, when I was in kindergarten, we stopped at corner where stood a church. I have been told...
