  • God loves hilarious givers

    When I first started thinking about writing an article to do with stewardship, I thought about the churched folks, dechurched folks and the unchurched folks.
    My thought was “What is the first thing each one will think about when they hear the word stewardship?”
    So I conducted a poll of 100 random people asking the question, “What is the first word that comes to your mind when you hear the word stewardship?”

  • Welcoming a daughter home

    Recently, a friend told me about the nose prints on her front window.
    “I’ve been pressing my face against the window, watching and waiting for my daughter to come home,” she said.
    After being away for a number of years, and after the worst possible year of her life thus far, she’s coming home for a time of respite and healing, starting over, starting fresh.
    However, at least as I write this, she’s not home yet.

  • It’s never wise to mess with a mom

    This past week I wrote a story in the Chronicle about a baby born 14 weeks premature who faces all kinds of health problems.
    That she survived at all is a miracle, and her family, especially her grandmother, knows that this baby, Hannah, is a gift from God.

  • A gift from Mrs. Polly

    I was reading this past week of the death of Garo Yepremian, former member of the Miami Dolphins professional football team. He was very instrumental in assisting the Dolphins win back to back NFL championships  during the early 1970s.
    Yepremian was a native of Cyprus. He came to the United States at the age of 22 and had the distinction of kicking in the first football game he ever saw.
    During this time in my life, Anna and I were living in Paris, Ky.

  • Are you a good person?

    Dateline NBC did a story recently on a murderer who had been convicted of hiring hitmen to kill his wife of 20 years.  
    As I was flipping channels, I became intrigued by this story. From the outside, this man looked like a “good man.”  He went to church on Sunday, had a high level executive job, had two beautiful children, and a faithful wife.  The family appeared to have acquired the American Dream.

  • Reaching the big 4-0

    Forty years ago, a very young man I barely knew got into his 1973 white and orange Ford Comet and said he was going to the store to buy film for his camera.
    I said to this very young man I barely knew, “You’re coming back, aren’t you?”
    Later that morning, this very young man I barely knew and I, also very young, had plans to get married.
    We were both stationed at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine, two miles from the Canadian border, and there were patches of snow on the ground.
    It was May 3, 1975.
