He Who Sleeps Near to the Ark

The early passages of 1 Samuel paint such a sorry picture of the spiritual condition of Israel during the administration of Eli, the Priest. The ESV describes his sons, Phinehas and Hophni in 1 Samuel 2:12, “Now the sons of Eli were worthless men. They did not know the Lord.” Without going in to great […]

Their Blood Cries Out From the Earth

The rampage of ISIS across the sands of the middle east continues.  Murdering men and beheading innocent children, raping women and selling them into slavery with impunity.  Rough estimates put the body count at 24,000 in 2014.  In the news media and around the world the cry is- WE MUST DO SOMETHING TO STOP THIS […]

Do Judge Me

All right, I admit it; I am different. My entire life has demonstrated that I view things rather differently than a lot of my friends and co-workers. I certainly view life through a vastly different lens than many of the folks I run across on Facebook and Twitter. I prove that very often when I […]

Choose Wisely

In the final scenes of the film “Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail,” the chalice supposedly used by Christ in the Last Supper was hidden among hundreds of other cups of many shapes, sizes, and qualities. The Knight guarding the vault where the chalice was hidden warned the villain who wanted to possess the cup […]

I Press On

” Forgetting that which is behind and pushing toward that which is ahead, I press toward the mark of the high calling of God. ” Philippians 4:13-14 Christmas is not only a time of family, great meals, and the giving of gifts. Because of its placement on the calendar, Christmas also signals the end of […]

Counting Blessings

I am encouraged by a truth tonight. The truth that comes from the Scriptures that tell me “be anxious for nothing, but in every thing make your requests known with thanksgiving; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7) There are many things […]

Loss

I was saddened this morning to learn that a good friend and college classmate had lost his only son yesterday. The fact that his son was only 5 years younger than my own first-born helped me to at least imagine the grief he and his wife are feeling today. My wife and I buried a […]

Oh, Really?

As Barbara Feinstein presented the Senate report on CIA torture of enemy combatants for the purpose of extracting information from them with the goal of saving American lives there was a collective gasp of horror and disgust that went out across the land. Senators and Congressmen, politicians and citizens of every ilk have expressed their […]

The Greatest Miracle

In a recent conversation with some of my colleagues we were asked about our favorite “Christmas” passage. Several very uplifting passages were shared. I shared mine, from Matthew 1:23: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel. (which means, god with us). This of course is a […]

There Is A Name

     Sitting here at my favorite place having a salad and soda, catching up on today’s news – I am struck by the number of articles posted on social media and internet news sites decrying the growing hatred of Christianity in the world.  There seems to be a generalized state of confusion, even amazement, that […]
