Ten Things Your Children Need to Know

This is the outline of a talk I gave in Colorado last year to a group of parents/grandparents. Psalm 71:17-18 Guilt is not a feeling. God forgives. God is real. God acts in our lives and in our behalf. You can know God. Daily devotional habits will change your life. The Holy Spirit will empower you. Bad things happen to good people. You are gifted — and responsible to use your gifts properly. Eternity is a long time.  Act in light of it!   … Read entire article »

Abraham Rescues Lot and Meets Melchizedek

Abraham Rescues Lot and Meets Melchizedek

These are some notes from a sermon I shared at a local church in Lusaka, Zambia recently.  The chapter is Genesis 14. Five kings versus four.  This was a regional conflict. Sodom is captured and plundered. Lot is captured and removed from Sodom.  (Was this a good thing?  Sometimes bad things happen which actually could be viewed in at least a partially positive light.  Lot didn’t need to be in Sodom.) Abram hears. There is no mention of his emotions. … Read entire article »

The Waiting Room: A Skit on Faith and Healing

The Waiting Room: A Skit on Faith and Healing

The following skit was inspired in a real waiting room in early 2016.  I wrote much of it shortly after that.  Our church’s lead pastor wanted us to perform it during a Healing Service held recently.  Apart from Bill’s medical issue, I pulled from true stories from friends, family and my own experiences, because I wanted the skit to embody real life events. Comments are welcome.  Please let us know if this skit makes you think … Read entire article »

A Note to Harried, Frustrated, Overworked Moms

A Note to Harried, Frustrated, Overworked Moms

My wife and I have been parents for a long, long time.  At least, it seems that way.  One thing I’ve learned is that being a parent is a tiring job.  Actually, it can be exhausting. I likes to observe people.  As we celebrate Mother’s Day this month, I can look around at the mothers of all ages in my circle of friends and at church and reflect on their countenances.  I see the mothers of … Read entire article »

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

This article is a feeble attempt to put into words what happened on what I now call my last Sunday in Brazil, but at the time I was calling it my last Sunday.  After morning church, I had spent part of the day wandering jungle paths with my camera and my trusty native guide, Logan.  Then Phil took me and some other guests out on a beautiful excursion across half of the Amazon where I … Read entire article »

How to Take a Cold Shower: A Primer for Spoiled Americans

How to Take a Cold Shower:  A Primer for Spoiled Americans

Before the trip passes by, I felt compelled to write what I hope will be an instructive guide for American tourists traveling to Brazil.  First, you have to understand that Brazil is hot.  Yes, I know, Arizona is hot.  Florida is unbearable.  And the record for hottest temperature on earth was in Death Valley, CA.  Blah, blah, blah. Brazil is a different kind of hot.  To illustrate this, I’ve included this photo of my deodorant stick.  … Read entire article »
