  • Remember those killed in South Carolina

    I have a copy of Chuck Coleson’s 1992 book, The Body: Being Light In Darkness.
    Sometimes I take it from the shelf, read and reflect on the stories presented.
    They express  transformation.
    One person surrenders life to bring God’s redemptive expression to others.
    Coleson writes of excruciating sacrifice. No denomination dominates the narrative. Pastors, priests and rabbis minister to individuals and groups inside and outside their traditions. The transcending stories bear witness of the power of God.

  • Sometimes tragedies are actually mercies

    Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people about how they came to faith in Christ, or how God delivered them from something that had them bound or how they were drawn closer to God because of a certain situation.
    More often than not, the circumstances that precede the turning point or the epiphany or the moment of surrender or rescue are dire, tragic, painful. Sometimes the painful situation is what God uses to bring a person from no faith to new faith or running from God to running to him.
