Starting in Faith

First things first

Have you heard what Brown University is asking applicants for the Class of 2017 as an essay prompt? French novelist Anatole France wrote: “An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don’t.”…

Just as you are

It happened nearly five years ago. I had been divorced for five years, wayward, empty and had made too many bad decisions. No drugs, no alcohol, I was a sinner and made bad decisions. I was not angry, oh no, my Lord had been so good to me. I just wasn’t available to Him. But over time He drew my heart to Him. He used people to mentor me and…

Christmas: A story crazy enough to believe

If the story weren’t so ridiculous, I don’t think I would have believed it. I have been the skeptic, and maybe too often, the cynic. I see the holes. But this story? The one about a King born in a manure-caked stable?  It was the absurdity of the story that I found most convincing. I’ve been a news journalist since…

What’s the worst thing you could imagine having to forgive?

Many of us can think of a divorce, either ours or our parents; abuse as a child; a car crash caused by a careless driver… Pain reaches out to touch us in so many ways.  If you’ve ever found it hard to forgive someone, that’s normal.  The power to forgive can’t come from inside us on our own. Here’s…

You’re invited!

One of the most exciting pieces of mail delivered to your dust covered United States Postal mailbox is a hand written thank you card or invitation.  Something that invites you to come to a special event or a celebration perhaps.  Something to say your presence is welcomed.  Something to let you know you’re invited to be a…
