  • COLUMN: Living a generous life in the name of Christ

    A few weeks ago a series of devastating tornadoes hit communities in Kentucky and Indiana.  In just a few seconds, life changed dramatically for the families who live in those areas.  Homes and schools gone, lives turned upside down, in some cases lives lost.  My family survived a tornado several years ago and I know the physical and emotional toll it can take.

  • COLUMN: Jesus must be both savior and Lord

    Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.”
    I believe many people have opened the door and invited Jesus in their heart, but many times they forget to make Jesus the lord of their life because they start thinking about a sin they cannot give up. If this happens, sin will devour you.

    Knights of Columbus Grand Knight Bill Greenwell, right, poses for a picture with All Saints’ youngest inductee into the Fourth Degree, Adam Villanova, with proud mother, Annie, in attendance.

  • COLUMN: Make it a point to love your neighbor

    Do you know your neighbors? I don’t mean just to speak to; I mean do you know them? Do you know their struggles, the challenges they face, the burdens they bear? I bet you know more about them than you think.
    For example, I grew up in a suburb of Baltimore. Across the street was an older couple who had no kids of their own. Next to them lived a police officer and his young bride and new baby. Our next door neighbors were from Great Britain. He taught high school and one day found his Volkswagen placed on his porch by some prankish kids.

  • COLUMN: No more excuses: Get in the word

    I was thinking this morning about how many excuses I have heard about not reading the Bible.

  • COLUMN: Start the day off right with God

    Do you remember getting ready to race when you were little? Someone always said, “Ready, set, go.” And you would take off.
    It seems like there was always that one kid who would say, “Ready, set…,” and then pause before saying “go.” Without fail someone, like me, would fall forward and we’d have to start all over again.

  • COLUMN: People or paperwork?

    Over the last few weeks I have been interacting with insurance agencies, banks, doctors and assorted other organizations on behalf of my mother.  The headaches and mindless policies can drive you crazy!  And then there are those who forget that each policy number or account number represents a living breathing person! By the way, all of this stuff happened in a state that will remain nameless, although orange and volunteer may give you a hint!

  • COLUMN: A disastrous downtown

    In 1 Kings 3:9 we see King Solomon asking God to give him an understanding heart to judge the people between good and bad. Did God answer that prayer? Look at 1 Kings 4:29-30: “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country and all the wisdom of Egypt.”

  • One way: Jesus is the only avenue for this life

    You may not know this, but I grew up in Baltimore Maryland.  At that time the Colts still played in Baltimore and the Orioles used to occasionally win a World Series.  Then, I ended up in Southern California for a while, about the time a fellow called Magic Johnson started playing for the Lakers.
