Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

In the Beginning…

Started a 10-week class on Genesis today. Now I have at least 50 questions that never occurred to me before. Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3


I saw this movie a long time ago. Maybe even more than once. I remember it as a Disney movie about a girl played by Haley Mills who single-handedly transforms a whole town with her sickeningly sweet positive attitude. Urg, I’ve often used the term “Pollyanna” as a negative way to characterize syrupy optimism withContinue reading “Pollyanna”

Moral Dilemmas

When I was in college I was drawn to the study of secular philosophy. In fact I majored in it. I went to graduate school to study Ethics because I wanted to learn enough about it to maybe teach and write about it someday. Let’s just say I didn’t remain in that line of work.Continue reading “Moral Dilemmas”

God the Father

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Genesis 1:1-2 The Bible is so full of imagery of God the Father. But is God’s Fatherliness an essentialContinue reading “God the Father”

Wear a Hat

One of my best friends for the last 30 years had a large melanoma removed from her scalp during the pandemic lockdown. Of course it had taken longer than it should have for her to get an appointment with a dermatologist due to the pandemic. And by the time she got a dermatology appointment, theContinue reading “Wear a Hat”


When do you feel like you “know” something as opposed to just “believing” it? I know that the Earth is round, or at least I think that I “know” that. But really, I don’t have any direct eye-witness evidence of that. I have heard others explain it to me, and explain why the evidence weContinue reading “Knowing”

Happy Anniversary

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary this week. Jimmy Carter was the first born-again Christian elected President of the United States. Although he served only one term as U.S. President, he and Rosalynn have continued to serve Christ throughout their lives. “I believe now, more than then,Continue reading “Happy Anniversary”

Only God Can Save

Have you ever tried to bring the Good News to someone who seems sooooo ready, but just is not “there” yet? I have a close relative who informed me two years ago that she was going to take her own life. She wanted me to be there with her when she did it and IContinue reading “Only God Can Save”

A Time For Prayer

There were many things I was thinking about writing today. I’ve got a list, and was eager to discover which of those things God would lead me to tap out on this keyboard today. And it didn’t happen. God kept whispering to my heart that this isn’t a time to write. It’s a time toContinue reading “A Time For Prayer”


Years ago I took a job that was an hour and 15 minute commute each way from my home. I did the math and figured out how much that daily commute was going to cost me, including wear and tear on the car (no public transportation), gas, tires, oil changes, etc. I knew exactly howContinue reading “Integrity”
