Brothers . . . behave!

We hosted two of our fourteen grandkids for a sleepover last night. We love all of our kids––and all of their kids––with all of our hearts. God has blessed us with a family that is close, tight-knit and following Christ. We could hardly ask for more. Yet, with two rambunctious five-year-old cousins in the house, […]

What If We Couldn't Go to Church

I recently released a new book: OLD PATHS AND ANCIENT MARKERS, Guarding the Treasure of the Gospel. I wrote it to be instructional and inspirational in particular to parents and their families. I did not see it at the time as prophetic and yet . . . it has turned out to be just that. […]

Until the Fury Has Passed By

My friends, here in Vermont we have entered a new phase of challenge in this pandemic we have come to call COVID 19. The governor of Vermont today announced a stay-at-home order, asking all non-essential persons to stay in their homes. It may be that it will be longer than we had hoped before we are […]

An Act of Faithful Disobedience

“Jesus is the Christ, son of the eternal, living God. He died for sinners and rose to life for us. He is my king and the king of the whole earth yesterday, today, and forever. I am his servant, and I am imprisoned because of this. I will resist in meekness those who resist God, […]

Abandoned

The Problem with Repentance

  I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, (Deuteronomy 30:19 ESV)    The United States of America is at a crossroads.  It is a far greater decision we must make […]

Trump Won My Vote Tonight

     As a matter of fact I do, and always have had, a so-called “litmus test” for the casting of my vote in ANY and ALL elections……..I vote for life. Who will stand for life? Who will protect the unborn? Who will call this nation back from the brink of the abyss of wretchedness. […]

Taking Congress

My good friend, John Goyette has written a fascinating book entitled, THE POWER OF RETURN (Published by Destiny Image Publishers, Shippensburg, PA 2010), in which he does an in-depth study of 12 major times of spiritual renewal in the nation of Israel.  He has carefully studied times of spiritual renewal under such men as Joshua, Samuel, […]

The Smartest Man in the Room

      On January 1, 404 A.D, a monk by the name of Telemachus, traveled to Rome in order to encourage the churches in Rome.  When he arrived he heard about the Gladiator fights in the Colosseum. Having never witnessed such things, Telemachus went to the coliseum. He was shocked by the barbarism, and […]
