Water water everywhere

No, this is not about the hurricane off the east coast. But it is about distribution issues. All over the world relief agencies send food to countries with starving people, but it never reaches its intended target audience. Corrupt governments and inefficiency contribute to an already distressing issue. Then there is Puerto Rico, in our...

On The Way

Jesus said, “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end” (Revelation 22:12,13). Three times in the book of Revelation the phrase Alpha and Omega is used. The...

It’s not about me

I’m sitting here thinking about all the opportunities we have put together for the people in the congregation to deepen their walk with Jesus. That is my desire, to find faithful people who will commit to the discipleship process. Paul’s admonition rings in my ears: You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that...

Poppin’, Poppin’ Differently

I voted today. Shirley’s popcorn unveiled four new flavors created by their employees. Customers could come in and vote for their favorite. There was dill and cheddar, chocolate and raspberry, chocolate and something else, and the chocolate volcano (it was hot). Very seldom can you go wrong with chocolate, but when I cast my vote...

One Unmovable Force

I was flipping through CNN’s pictures of the week and two stood out to me. I have put them together above. The one is a shot of a volcano flowing hot in the night sky. It is a beautiful shot, an awe inspiring photograph. I have always been fascinated by volcanoes, because they are a...

Oh, Beautiful America

“Oh, beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.” America the Beautiful  I was reading an article about how the U.S. uses its land. It’s amazing how...

It Changed Everything

Does Jesus make a difference? I suppose it depends on your relationship with him. We all have stories. Stories of family, stories of faith, even stories of joy and tragedy. In each of these stories lies a deep need to connect with something bigger than ourselves. Here is my story. My family was typical of...

Drywall Dilemma

I am so glad my son came this weekend. Even though he hasn’t ever put up drywall, he is very exacting. We would pump this project out in no time. The first night was exhausting, we didn’t put up nearly as much drywall as we expected. I guess I hadn’t thought too much about prep-work....

Porthos sat at the window, gaze straight, and body shaking. Crossing the yard was a family of turkeys. The father strutted in front, leading his family dutifully toward the woods across the road. The mother lagged behind with her turklets (baby turkeys), making a gobble that sounded much like, “hurry up, your father doesn’t want...

Disconnected

Rebecca was straightening her office and asked if I would move the internet modem. You wouldn’t think it that big of a deal, but I had to disconnect it in order to move it. It was a nightmare to get my internet service in the first place. Just thinking about pulling the plug sent chills...
