    Sunday School Convocation

  • Hope is the breath of life

    We all need hope.  
    There have been times in my life that I have felt hopeless. Before I became a Christian and gave my life to Christ, I was constantly let down by others.  
    My family struggled with addiction and was not there for me growing up.
    Boyfriends in school would want one thing and then discard me. Even girlfriends in high school, were there today, gone tomorrow.  
    I looked to drugs and alcohol for a time in high school to make me feel better and numb the pain.  

  • Grace doesn't have to be earned

    Recently, two quotes from two very different people landed in my email inbox that have caused me to ponder.
    The first one came as a Christianity Today update about Tullian Tchividjian, the Fort Lauderdale pastor who resigned after admitting to an inappropriate relationship. The update said he has no plans to withdraw from the public eye.
    He wrote on his Facebook page: “One of the big questions I’ve wrestled with is, how do I properly steward this glorious ruin?”

  • Public opinion carries no weight in matters of the soul

    I recently attended a birthday party.
    As I was talking to a young girl, I soon learned she had gotten in trouble with her mom because of a Facebook comment she had posted.
    As I listened to her, the young lady was not too happy about her mom’s decision to make her stay off Facebook.
    I also learned the facts behind the problem, I explained to her why her mom was right and why she needed to respect that.
    My advice didn’t go over very well at all.

  • Shame-based culture on the comeback

    When I was a kid, we used to sing the taunt, “Shame, shame, everybody knows your name!”
    I don’t remember who taught it to us, but we took great delight in singing it to anyone we wanted to shame and humiliate.
    I was a horrible child. I’m still horrible, but I clean up nicely and mostly refrain from pointing out people’s sin to their face in public.
    Still, what is it about us humans that we love to shame others?

  • Everybody is susceptible to temptation

    You may not know the name Tullian Tchividjian, but you’ve heard of his grandfather, Billy Graham.
    Tullian is the former pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale. He resigned last month after admitting to an inappropriate relationship with someone other than his wife.

  • Former ‘gargoyle’s’ questions prompt sharing of answers

    The other day I got a letter from a Mark Gould of Southampton, New Jersey.
    He had just finished reading my book “Prayers God Always Answers” and he had some questions for me. He said, “I do like to question authors, more kindly now than in the past — once a gargoyle, not always one.”
