  • Clean hands and pure hearts

    As a Christian, I have a longing desire to grow in my knowledge of God. I never want to come to a point in my life when I can look back on times past and say that I was closer to Him then than I am now.
    I have sadly witnessed so many individuals in my life that seemed to have had a more intimate relationship with Christ years ago than they do at present.
    In my quest to have a deeper relationship with God, I find that few requirements are more important than purity of heart.

    Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.

  • The greatest love story ever told

    There was once a great, noble, faithful, righteous husband who married. His wife became discontent. She left him, looking for greener pastures. She chased after false lovers who held out a deceptive promise of a full and satisfying life which she vainly pursued.
    Initially, it felt like freedom. She thought she was choosing, but increasingly she fell deeper into a tyranny of her own desires and fell captive to users and abusers.
    She was trapped, stuck, captured. She accrued a tremendous debt. A debt produced by selfish desires and the manipulation of and by others.

    I hate clutter, although you’d never know it by looking at my desk.
    This morning I had some free time, so I decided to go through the piles of notes and scribbles scattered around, which usually results in a “random notes of grace” column.
    I hope something will be helpful or encouraging to you today:
    Some months ago, I wrote down something my friend Mike said: “I had faith that I was going to heaven, but I didn’t trust God to fix me NOW because I didn’t see how he would or could do it.”

  • For me, Easter changed everything!

    As I sit down to write this article, my fingers are pecking on keys on a device called a computer. The first time I encountered a computer was my junior year in college in 1990.
    One of my classes, Psychology 101, was being used to introduce computers to college students and we had several assignments where we had to go and answer questions on a new system called e-mail.

    A few years ago, classical musicians started doing “random acts of culture,” usually in busy shopping malls.
    All of a sudden, someone in the crowd would start singing or playing a violin and then others in the food court or on the escalator would join in until 10 or 20 or more voices and/or instruments would create a moment of cultural beauty while surprised shoppers stopped and listened, pulling out their cellphones to record it to share with their friends on Facebook or YouTube.

  • My faith is strengthened

    Growing up I remember participating in the Easter reenactment at dawn followed by a breakfast that filled the entire church with wonderful smells. We sang the songs that celebrated the resurrection of Jesus.
    In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul gave four specific pieces of evidence proving the resurrection of Jesus.
    First, Paul gave a logical and subjective argument (verses 12-19) stating that if Jesus has not risen from the dead then preaching is useless, our faith is a farce, and we are still in the bondage of sin.
