Is That Your Name?

Our baby is having a baby. My wife and I can hardly believe it. That little girl we held in our arms just yesterday will soon be embracing her own little girl for the very first time. As all new parents do during the process of a pregnancy, Lauren and Chase had to choose a […]

The Chicken Or The Egg

Growing up I had never heard of “Lent”. It was a foreign concept to my low-brow spiritual upbringing. In fact all of the “church calendar” (with the notable exceptions of Easter, Christmas and Pentecost) were seen as the machinations of the elite liturgical church used to manufacture artificial spiritual experiences. Jeesh…we are a dumb lot […]

The Garden

It started in a garden. Creation. Worlds erupted to life. Stars flung through skies. Planets spun into orbits. Mountains sculpted. Seas filled. Chaos took shape as order was formed. The void animated with the energies of new life. Out of dust man was created. From his body, a perfect match forged. In place of nothing, a beautiful, flourishing Garden called Eden burst forth full of life […]

A Blanket Proposal

It wasn’t his best day. Not even close. After a very long obedience in the right direction, he let down his guard, had a bit too much to drink and wound up in a highly compromising situation. Had he been able to stay awake, he would have been embarrassed and humiliated. But he was in […]

This Father’s Heart

It burst out of him spontaneously. He literally couldn’t help himself. When our oldest grandson, Gabe, was little and something really good happened to him, he would look up with an ecstatic smile and squeal, “Happy birthday to me!” It made no difference that it wasn’t even close to his birthday, he could think of no better […]

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 Re- asons I Do Lent

I grew up in a “low-church” world. We sang gospel music out of “camp-meeting” songbooks, had “testimony” services, “prayed through” at the altar and didn’t mind a bit of jitterbuggin’ for Jesus. So clearly, I never celebrated Lent. Truth be told, I didn’t even know what it was until I was in seminary. Church calendars were high-brow stuff […]
