Sacred Pandemonium

It finally happened. After 37 Christmases with 3 children, their loves and our 7 grandkids I guess it was inevitable. In National Lampoon worthy fashion, this year the Christmas tree fell over. Now, to be accurate, we have two trees. The formal, pretty one we call “Mom’s tree” and the other is the “family tree”. […]

That’s My Dad

My Dad died two months ago. I was privileged to speak at his memorial. With Father’s day around the corner, I thought I’d share some excerpts from that eulogy to honor his memory…. If you knew my Dad or ever sat under his ministry, you most likely know the words: “The Cedars of Lebanon.” It was the title of His […]

Little Gifts From A Big God

Her eyes were as big as silver dollars when she looked over my head and gasped in surprise. Without taking her eyes off whatever had mesmerized her, Dianne said, “Don’t move! Just look over your shoulder.” Now those are not the first contradictory commands I’ve heard from my wife of 35 years, but I could […]

The Full Extent of His Love

Endings say a lot about what went before. I saw this personally and painfully as I conducted the memorial service of my 36-year-old nephew this week. A brave fire-fighter, a loving husband, a dedicated father, a real friend. David died as he had lived, spending his life-currency on others. The real stuff—the core of what […]

Just Like Me!

The only thing better than a new baby around the house is… TWO! That pleasure is amplified when they are grand-babies! That is the happy predicament in which my wife and I find ourselves. Two new grandbabies invading our lives only a few months apart and each planting their own flag of conquest in our […]

Hidden Beauty

Sticks. That’s really all they were. Whether unused lumber from a construction site or broken branches from a tree, they were discarded scraps of wood deemed unfit for use. Nothing but waste. Refuse. Junk. Fuel to be thrown in the fire. That’s what most people thought. But not Luther. He would pick up an old piece of wood and see what no […]

Strange Beauty

Raw beauty shows up best in the strangest places. Like down the street from my friend Thomas’ house in Brazil. It’s just a normal street absent of any outstanding or attractive features. Yet, growing out of a small patch of unmowed grass along the side of his road is one of the most beautiful trees […]
