Unexpected Stewardship Challenges

Stewardship topped my chart a few years ago when I realized how much stuff we had that we didn’t use. Since then, I actively seek to rehome anything that can better serve elsewhere. If I don’t love something or need it, it’s on it’s way out the door. Five days ago I realized that I’m failing to be a good

Socialism, Equality, and the Garden of Eden

The relative value of socialism and demands for equality or equity dominate politics, academia, and public debate. What few consider is that the conversation began in the Garden of Eden. Reducing God to human level denies His qualities of being other or more than we. Sinful human nature seeks to bring God down to our level rather than being inspired

Living With Christian Victory in a World that Denies God

The United States is a hot mess of disunity. If you’re not at war with someone over what they think, you’re not in the game.

Life is a marathon with mile markers between the beginning and end, some accompanied by squeals of delight while others peel the skin right off whatever hits first.

The True Spirit of Christmas – It’s So Much Better to Give Than Receive

  I discovered this story years ago. May it bless and inspire you as it has me. Miraculous transformations, like Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch, are possible once we realize it’s so much better to give than receive. Scrooge: “Bah, humbug!” Narrator: “Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!”

Discovering New Reasons to Celebrate Christmas – Recovering from Humbug

  Thirty years ago I loved everything about Christmas, firing up seasonal songs the first of November, singing along with off-key gusto when no one could hear, searching out the perfect gift for each special person on my long list. Some years my decorations were photo worthy, often designing gift-wrapping as personal to the recipient as the gift itself –
