Swim Parallel to the Shore

            Last week I called a gentleman whose wife I had helped him bury about three months ago.  He’s one of these guys who doesn’t really believe in anything he can’t see—that gets in the way of beli…

Being CAREFUL to Obey God

The rebellion of people against God is not a new thought.  “Rebellion is bound up in the heart of a child” the wise man said.  And such rebellion is graphically seen in the pages of the Hebrew Scriptures, as the apostle Paul wrote, “The things written aforetime were writte…

Whatever It Takes

In a community meeting about homelessness, I listened to a speaker imploring that all of us determine

THE DISTANCES BETWEEN US

Distance is usually measured in miles and meters, inches and feet, but sometimes distance must be considered based on culture and societal factors. As we “go into all the world and preach the gospel” we are faced with an ever changing audience. There was a time wh…
