  • COLUMN: God isn’t fooled by masks

    Masks are everywhere today. On Main Street tonight kids in costumes will be searching for candy and goodies. Maybe in your neighborhood you’ll see a few trick-or-treaters. You may have kids or grandkids that enjoy dressing up. You may even put on a plastic mask or a wig or a pair of goofy glasses just to have a little fun. It is just that time of year.

  • COLUMN: The church of Philadelphia

    Of all the churches Jesus told John to write about, Philadelphia is the church I chose for our church.

  • COLUMN: Take time to recognize life’s little miracles

    How did it happen that we have become so blind to the little miracles of everyday life? Big, amazing miracles still happen. Someone returns from deep under the shadow of death and we rejoice. An unexpected financial windfall saves a family home. You look up after a frightening moment on the highway and realize that the crash never came.

  • Leaves need water and food, but people need God's word

    It’s that time of year again when the leaves are changing. As the weather grows colder the leaves put on their fall colors. We get to enjoy crisp cool days and beautiful orange, red, and gold hillsides.
    This year the colors are not quite as brilliant; many trees are shedding their leaves with hardly a bright color to show. The drought this summer has left its mark in the fall foliage. Without the rain the trees could not pull needed nutrients out of the ground. They are not as healthy, so they are not showing off as much this year.

  • Don't be sucked in by counterfeit identities

  • COLUMN: Are you feeling trapped?

    Not long ago I was stuck on an elevator. It reached the floor I wanted, but the door wouldn’t open. After a long day I just wanted to get to my hotel room and call it a day. Instead I spent the next 45 minutes trapped, just waiting for someone to get me out of that little box. Someone had to come with a key to get me safely out of the elevator.

  • COLUMN: Teach children to fear the Lord

    Each year it gets harder to raise our children up in the fear of God. Our children come in contact with a lot of ungodly things in the world. Television, politics, government leadership, news from around the world — everything is infiltrating our children’s minds.

  • COLUMN: Fearful times call for courage from God

    We live in fearful times. Overseas an ambassador is murdered, embassies are attacked, and our troops are still in danger in Afghanistan. Riots in the streets endanger American travelers throughout North Africa and the Middle East. But it isn’t just overseas, everyday it seems there is a murder, a robbery or some other danger not far from our back door.
    Then throw in an unsettled economy, high unemployment, job losses, salary cutbacks, and a there is plenty of fear to go around.
