Are we ripe for revival?

On Easter Sunday, I was abruptly reminded I am no longer 30 years old! Lisa and I had accepted an invitation from friends to play pickle ball. We had never played, so we said, “Sure, let’s do it! After all, it’s not a contact sport.” I work out regularly, but mostly with a stationary bicycle […]


Buddy Up & Stand Courageous: Be A Man for Jesus!

One of the names of God is El Gibor, which is translated “Mighty God” in Isaiah 9:6: “For unto us a child is born, … and his name shall be called … The Mighty God, …” It can as well be translated as “God is our hero.” The word “gibor” can also be applied to […]


Mommies & Daddies, Daughters & Sons

“Mommy, where do daddies come from?” In some cases, this hard question supplants the awkward query “Where do babies come from?” Mothers are sometimes stumped in their efforts to explain where daddies come from, especially when the father is absent in a child’s life.

‘Tis the Season! Expectation of Light & Hope for the World

The Light of the World has come! His coming is what we celebrate at Christmas. From the very start, His light drew people who hungered for truth from far and wide. Consider the magi, or wisemen. Many of us know the song, “We Three Kings,” written by John Henry Hopkins Jr in 1857 for a Christmas […]
