  • Verbal Abuse in the Church

    Does unity in the church require ignoring verbal abuse from the pastor or other members? In the interest of unity, should we just suck it up when we experience a pattern of abusive behavior? That’s the question I’m living these days. I’ve just been “fired” from my volunteer leadership position at our church. The how…

  • Let’s Take Another Look at Halloween

    As October rushes upon us, young and old begin thinking about Halloween. The stores have been filled with ghosts, goblins, and witches for at least a month already. Soon neighbors will decorate their yards with as much gusto as for Christmas. Halloween is the second most expensive holiday in America, close on the heels of…

  • From Grumbling to Gratitude

    Are you a grumbler? Complainer? Many of us are… We see the impact of the Israelites’ grumbling and complaining in the book of Exodus. God repeatedly provided for them, always in miraculous ways.

  • Concern for Your Body, Christ’s Body

    Have you ever pondered this remarkable creation called your body? Throughout history, we humans have studied and tried to explain the dynamic capabilities of this instrument.  Consider how the bones, muscles, and tendons work together to produce strength and movement.

  • My Anchor of Hope

    How’s your hope quotient? It’s no secret that we’ve come through one of the most challenging and turbulent years in my lifetime (and I’ve been around for a while!). We’ve lived through a toxic stew of a worldwide pandemic (complete with illness, death, shutdowns, and shut-ins), a venomous election (complete with alleged fraud and deceit),…

  • Is It Time to Pack Your Bags?

    As the Church has faced more opposition in the past few months, I’ve heard more “End Times” sermons than at any time in my Christian life. It seems that any time things get tough in the US, American Christians turn to the rapture as their great hope. They believe (and hope and pray) that we’ll…
