  • A confession of love for, fear of the confessional

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was 7 or so I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.

  • Opening the door to sin lets the devil get his foot in and take over

    For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

  • Prayer is a winning strategy in the game of life

    My family and I were outside playing a friendly game of football recently. I say “friendly” because it sounds nice. When, in all actuality, I am a momma who plays to win.
    Now, you probably don’t know this about me, nor would you think it if you saw my smaller frame, but I have got some skill. It is not my quick feet or my massive strength or even my knowledge of football (which is questionable) that leads me to be victorious. My skill is strategy.

  • WWJD? He wouldn't make followers be perfect

    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.
    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s, the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, et al.
    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • God sends help when it’s most needed

    I’ve mentioned my friend Harry before.
    He’s 86ish and used to golf every day, but one day several years ago he decided he’d had enough and hung up his clubs, or whatever it is you do when you stop golfing.
    Harry and his wife, Charlotte, have sat behind me in church for as long as I can remember.
    When we built the sanctuary 12 years ago, Harry and Charlotte scoped the place out and chose their spot on the second row, second section on the left, Saturday night service.
    I chose my spot on the first row, right in front of Harry.

  • Christians should take note of soccer team’s example

    It is usually the front section of our newspapers that contains information regarding violence in the world.  When we turn to the sports sections of our papers we usually do not find a great amount of news that causes us any concern, except if our favorite team is on a losing streak.  Can we say Cincinnati Reds?  
    Within the last two weeks we have read about and watched a replay of two San Antonio high school football players hitting a referee from behind.
