    Where do you turn when things go wrong in your life and you need answers? I am challenging each of us to look at who or what we rely on. We know bad things can happen, and we can all agree that no one likes to face a crisis. We would much rather avoid suffering, pain, frustration, or really anything that might make us uncomfortable. When we are looking for answers, do we turn to God? Do we seek…

    This certainly is a joyous season! Christmas music fills the air. Christmas greetings arrive from distant friends. Families gather joyfully around the Christmas dinner. Children try unsuccessfully to contain their excitement as Christmas draws near. What is a “Merry Christmas,” anyway? To some, a Merry Christmas is simply a happy time of year when they can get together with family and friends. To…

    In the first chapter of Luke, the Holy Spirit makes us witnesses of two miraculous encounters. First, the angel Gabriel appears to the priest Zechariah and reveals to him that his wife, Elizabeth, will bear a child even in her advanced age. They were to name this miracle child John, and he would prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah. Six months later, just a three-day walk away in…

    What is so powerful about a manger located in a barn holding a baby that is sleeping?  Almost all, if not everyone, in the United States has at least a basic understanding of the Christmas account in the Bible. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is the only birthday that has been celebrated for 2000 years. Holiday retail sales in 2019 generated $789.4 billion dollars.…

    I remember as a kid I liked watching Saturday morning cartoons, like Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd and Sylvester and Tweetie. However, I remember how much I disliked Wile E. Coyote and Ralph Wolf, whether it was Wile. E. Coyote trying to outwit the Roadrunner or Ralph Wolf trying to devise a diabolical plan to nab one of the sheep under the careful eye of Sam Sheepdog. But the thing about Sam…

    I’ve met interesting people over the past years of pastoring. I learn about many things in life by the experiences and stories of others. Everyone has a story. Everyone has one life to live. At some point we all have wrestled with the question, “Why am I here?” or “What am I going to do with my life?” For some the calling becomes clear early in life; for others, they struggle for a lifetime.…

    Psalm 19:14 speaks about our words being acceptable or pleasing to God. Let’s think about our words. Not only do we speak words, we also type them and we read them. We use words all the time. When we are using words, what are we saying with them? What impact do our words have on those who hear or read them each day? Do our words bless or do they curse? Do our words build up or do they tear down?…

    “The lake (Superior), it is said, never gives up her dead … when the gales of November come early.” And so goes the story of “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” This is probably the most recognized ship disaster of the Great Lakes, due in large part to Gordon Lightfoot’s 1975 ballad of the same name. Forty-six years ago, on Nov. 10, the Edmund Fitzgerald — with a crew of 29 — sank into the…

    Ryan Arnold of Denver, Colorado, knew what was important to him. He also knew the risks. In fact, there were many risks to consider, but the decision he made demonstrated that he had his priorities straight: the life of his brother was worth risking it all. Before the surgery, where Ryan planned to give his brother Chad part of his liver, they had one last embrace. Sadly, this would be the last…
