  • Who are we to say that we’re not good enough?

    Lately I have taken up a new hobby:  paint pouring.  It doesn’t sound too difficult…how hard can it be to pour paint onto a canvas? But, it turns out that it does take some hard work and knowledge to be able to do it well.  You have to do a little bit of chemistry, a little bit of color combining, and a whole lot of trial and error.

    A week or so ago, I went to a celebration of life service at a church I’d never been to before.
    Behind the altar was a huge glass wall with a huge glass mosaic crucifix in the middle.
    While I waited for the service to start, I studied the crucifix, the intricate pieces of colored glass fit together to form Christ’s body.
    Unlike a jigsaw puzzle, these glass pieces didn’t fit together smoothly and perfectly. The edges appeared to be rough. Perhaps the artist had used broken bits and pieces? I couldn’t tell.

    In the 27 or so years I’ve been writing for the newspaper, I’ve listened to and retold the stories of many hundreds of people.
    My favorites are the ones of redemption.
    Lately, I’ve been interested in the stories told by recovering drug addicts, their descent into a living hell and how the grace of God pulled them out and set them free.
    One man, a heroin addict for 25 years, once slit his own throat. Yet God saved him and now, 25 years later, he’s helping to save others.

    One of my favorite things in life is architecture.
    I love buildings, especially huge skyscrapers and massive structures.
    That’s why, when the Notre-Dame Cathedral caught on fire a week or so ago, I was interested in the rapt attention worldwide -- over a building.
    People actually mourned the destruction of a centuries-old building, and not just the people of Paris, but people from around the world.
    Why?

  • Wouldn’t synchronized churches be enough?

    I recently enjoyed a weekend in Tennessee with some young folk from church. We were attending a retreat sponsored by a Christian college.
    First, kudos to these young people and the folks raising them. They were fine representatives of both their families and their home church.
    Needless to say there were young people, about 250, invading the campus from at least seven states. There was food, loud music and plenty of activities – my body has gotten really o-l-d!
