  • COLUMN: The cost of following Jesus

    Today’s reading from Luke chapter 14, verses 25-27: “Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: ‘If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.’”

  • COLUMN: Life's simple things

    In my life I have been blessed to travel and to see some of the most amazing things, from the beauty of Yosemite to a snow covered village in the mountains of Japan, from the awesome power of a pacific storm crashing into the cliffs off of Washington’s Puget sound, to the splendor of a starlit sky while camping in the Appalachians.
