Your Voice in the Dark

It’s rampant.  It’s everywhere.  It’s infected every sphere of society.  It has become so normalized, that too many are blind and deaf to its devastating effect.  I shouldn’t have to explain any further than the recent allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the hashtag response of #metoo.  What breaks my heart about this recent wave of … Continue reading Your Voice in the Dark

Consistent Contact

Two things I've always tried to hold on to in my relationship with Jesus are these terms: Consistency and Constancy.  First, let me say that I am in no way claiming to be an expert on this issue.  I only speak to this because of my consistent and constant failure as a Christian.  The reason … Continue reading Consistent Contact

Before you take your mark

Ever watch the Olympics?  I do, and my favorite athletes to watch are the sprinters in the track & field events.  The power they exhibit coming off the blocks, the flawless running form, and the speed is awesome to watch!  As I'm sure you have noticed, they are dressed very differently in how they come … Continue reading Before you take your mark

A National Thanksgiving

"Our company are, for most part, very religious, honest people; the word of God sincerely taught us every Sabbath; so that I know not any thing a contented mind can here want..." (William Hilton, an eyewitness account of the first Thanksgiving, 1621) Even though we are without a doubt one of the greatest nations on the planet, … Continue reading A National Thanksgiving

Practicing Inconsistency

Read this carefully.  Once completed, read it again.  If necessary, read it one more time after that.  Let it marinate. “So they may profess that they have seen the truth of the gospel, and that they not only think, but know, that the Scripture is the word of God.  But if it be so, why … Continue reading Practicing Inconsistency

Greater Gratitude

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. This time of year always brings me a sense of love, pride, thankfulness, and humility. I always make sure to spend time remembering and thanking the Lord for all … Continue reading Greater Gratitude
