  • 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.

    Recently, I met a woman who had moved to the area to stay with family after a painful divorce and some health problems on top of that.
    She had lost everything and was starting over.
    “I’m too old for this,” she said, although she didn’t divulge her age.
    She looked to be maybe 40, which isn’t old, but when you’ve lost everything and you’re starting over in a place you really, really, really don’t want to be but feel you have no choice and nowhere else to go, any age is too old, I suppose.

  • Working for the Lord

    When we consider the phrase, “working for the Lord,” most of us think about the tasks we perform at our church. Tasks that include teaching, singing, serving as an usher, a committee person, janitor, grounds keeper, trustee, church treasurer, secretary, visitation ministry, etc. The list goes on and on.
    As important and necessary as these tasks are, did you know when we go to work each day to “earn a living,” we are working for the Lord?

  • What is God like?

    Here’s a question for you: What is God like? From your gut, how would you characterize him?
    A number of years ago, Baylor University conducted a survey, asking people to choose words that described how they characterized God and his level of anger and also their perceived level of his involvement in the world.
    The researchers concluded that Americans viewed God in four distinct ways:

  • Moments when we all feel trapped

    I was at the movies the other evening and viewed the upcoming films that would soon arrive. One particular summer film by Warner Brothers caught my attention, Dunkirk. This movie is a true story of one of the most remarkable miracles of World War II. This miracle is beloved and cherished by those who are aware of what happened in a little French fishing village in 1940.
