  • May the ‘Force’ be with you!

    Be a Jedi Christian!
    We must be prepared — we must be equipped, armed. Every day we wrestle against “The Empire” — Satan and his Imperial Forces.
    But we need not fear! The “Force” (Jesus) not only is close to us, He is here to help us. All we need do is call on Him.
    There are parallels between Jedi warriors and Christians.

    A number of years ago a woman called me at work, wanting to tell me her story.
    She wanted to tell someone who would believe her and not laugh, someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful, impossibly improbable things.
    She had heard that I believe that God makes pigs fly.
    That I do, although I haven’t seen any in a very long time, but I’m praying that I will.

  • Hope in the night, light in the darkness

    Several years ago I began a column: “The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the ‘week from hell.’
    “We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.
    “Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness. We scowled. We sulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.
    “It was one B-A-D week.”
    That could be said of the past several weeks, locally and globally.

  • We are never alone

    Don Powell, Gideon’s

    Probably one of the worst feelings we mortals must occasionally endure is the feeling of loneliness.
    We may suffer the loss of a loved one or close friend due to death. We may have to suffer through the heartache of divorce after many years of marriage. You may lose a roommate unexpectedly. Whatever the situation, suddenly, we find ourselves with feelings of loneliness. We find ourselves lost and alone in a sea of people.

  • Local Churches celebrate Go Red for Women's Heart Awareness
  • No turning back

    There is a hymn that says, “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back.” I remember that song at an early age, when as a preteen “I made a decision to follow Jesus.” But at that time in my life, what stuck out the most was “the no turning back.”
    I accepted Jesus at church camp. I was away from my very dysfunctional and abusive home, and believed this decision was not going to take me back to those circumstances. If Jesus cared enough to save my soul, then I just knew he would save me from “going back.”

    CITY ON A HILL

  • Grace Notes

    This past Valentine’s Day, the newspaper ran a story I wrote about Harry and Charlotte Austin who have been sweethearts since Charlotte was 10 and Harry was 11.
    They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.
    I’ve written about them before -- they sit behind me in church on Saturday nights.
    For the past five or so years Charlotte has had dementia, and in 2015 she had a stroke that affected her left side.
    So, when they come to church, Harry positions her in the pew next to him in such a way that if she leans she won’t topple over.
