The Right Kind of Crazy

Madness. It reigned over and rained on this city just weeks before we landed this weekend at McCarran International airport. Las Vegas–affectionately dubbed “sin-city”–was shaken to its core when sin made its ugliest darkside known. A thoroughly broken man lit up this city of lights with a semi-automatic weapon, a bump stock and a cache […]

More Than You Prayed For

Once in a lifetime. We say it often, but Zechariah experienced it for real. By tradition and because there were so many Levitical priests, many priests never had a chance to go into the Temple to serve. If they did get the chance…it was the chance of a lifetime. Such a great honor and rare privilege. (Luke […]

The Great Divide

It’s a memory as fresh as yesterday, even though I have made more than forty laps around the sun since then. The scope and scale of what I saw were enormous. It’s expanse and beauty breathtaking. Instantly and simultaneously I experienced both heart-racing exhilaration and heart-stopping terror. Growing up in the American northwest, by age 14 I […]

Running on Tiptoe!

She is one and she is walking. Fast! Isabella went from wobbling like a Weeble to running like an Olympian in what seemed like days. Funny thing is she walks—even runs—on her tiptoes. She isn’t terribly stable and she falls fairly often, but she bounces back up and immediately starts bounding like a gazelle on the […]

Leaking Life

Leaking life…every day for twelve years. That’s what was happening to a woman who snuck up on Jesus in a last-ditch attempt to get well. (Luke 8:43-48) You see, she’d had a menstrual hemorrhage for twelve years. Since, as Scripture says, “Life is in the blood”…she was literally discharging life. What’s worse, she had spent her […]

Numb And Number

My fingers were numb. I couldn’t feel anything. And not feeling is a weird feeling. It happened a few weeks ago when I picked up my guitar after not having played for years. I used to love to play, but piano has taken guitar’s place as ‘my’ instrument. Now I am at that age where […]

A Swift Kick in the Ask

It wasn’t much really. Just a nudge in the pre-dawn thoughts on a Wednesday morning in late January–like a poke from a friend on Facebook. I woke up and knew I was to speak at my Dad’s memorial service. I also knew exactly what I was supposed to say. Now understand, Dad wasn’t dead or […]
