  • 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.

  • God's kingdom is full of failures

    Once again it’s time for a mumbo jumbo, bits of odds and ends column filled with random thoughts and various things I’ve found and have been saving that are too short for a full-length column yet too good not to use. I hope there will be something helpful to you.
    •In a sermon at the church in Tampa we often visit, the pastor talked about fear, a subject I am well acquainted with, although I’m much better than I was.

  • Love is willing to be uncomfortable, get messy

    This past week at church we sang the song, “They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love,” which made me smile.
    Written by a Catholic priest in 1968, I knew the song from my childhood. I have a vivid memory of my little brother singing it -- while beating the tar out of my other brother.
    I’m sure neither of my brothers appreciated the irony.
