• COLUMN: Open the door for Jesus

    I don’t know who invented the door, but to whomever did, I am very thankful. Our front doors keep out the wind, rain and cold of winter. Inside doors allow us some privacy in busy households. Some doors allow us to hide messy rooms when we have guests over.

  • COLUMN: Driving nails: A bent nail isn’t the end of the road

    Recently I had the chance to help with a building project in West Liberty, a tornado ravaged community in Eastern Kentucky. Now, I can use a tape measure and hammer a nail or two, but I am in awe of the men and women who just seem to know how to handle a hammer and saw.

  • COLUMN: Mud: A tangible reminder that we need purification

    It’s been raining a lot lately and mud seems to be everywhere. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get things muddy and how hard it is to keep things clean? Some people even have a mudroom at home, a room to kick off muddy boots or shed muddy clothes before going into the rest of the house, but I bet it doesn’t work that way all the time.

  • COLUMN: Forgive them, Father

    Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Luke 23:32-34 says, “Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with Him (Jesus). And when they came to the place, which is called ‘The Skull,’ there they crucified Him (Jesus), and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ ”

  • COLUMN: Phones: We are constantly updating

    Everybody reading this has had phones around their entire life. But think how much phones have changed recently. The telephone was invented in 1876 and in 1891 the first dial telephones were invented. That basic phone stayed the same for the next 74 years until 1963 when Bell Systems invented the “touch tone” phone, which was still pretty easy. My grandparents’ whole life they had simple and stress free telephones.
