  • Grace Notes

    A few years ago I learned that somewhere in Citrus County Jesus was in a tree.
    Not literally, but a woman had called the newsroom to say she could see an image of Jesus in a tree that was in her yard.
    Lots of people think they see Jesus in stuff. Just Google “things that look like Jesus” and you’ll see photos of the face of Jesus in everything from pieces of toast and cloud formations to slabs of marble or rust stains on the surface of an iron.
    Some items are even for sale on eBay.
    People see Jesus everywhere.

  • Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead

    Every year Easter reminds us that Jesus has risen from the dead. From time to time, we forget this, especially when facing some sort of difficulty. When this happens to me, I find encouragement knowing that the early church leader, Timothy seemed to have this same problem.
    The Apostle Paul wrote two letters to Timothy included in the Bible.

    My niece, Jennifer, has three daughters, Leah, Emma and Lily.
    Last year I bought them a book, “Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing,” by Sally Lloyd-Jones. It’s a children’s devotional book that simplifies Bible stories and concepts -- I highly recommend it for all my adult friends.
    Theology sometimes makes grown up people a bit crazy because we tend to take the simple and straightforward and make it ridiculous and complicated.

  • A difference between hope and wishful thinking

    I have always loved college basketball. I grew up in Virginia and on the Friday of the ACC tournament, my friends and I would skip school to watch all the games that day. I was a misguided and misdirected North Carolina fan in those days (think Michael Jordan, James Worthy, and Sam Perkins – 1982 NCAA champions – my junior year in high school).
    I was thrilled to move to Kentucky several years ago because, among many reasons, college basketball is king around here. Having seen the light, I really enjoy Kentucky basketball.

    I love bad jokes.
    One of my favorites involves a house painter who used to cut corners by thinning his paint with turpentine.
    As he was on a job, up on a scaffold, the skies opened up and a torrential downpour washed away all the thinned paint on the building he was painting. Next, a crash of thunder knocked him off the scaffold and into a puddle of thinned, worthless paint on the ground.
    The painter, believing it to be a message from God, cried out, “God, forgive me! What should I do?”

  • Rattlesnakes and mountain lions

    I pulled up to the ranger station at Zion National Park and sauntered up to the ranger. “I need to get a backcountry camping permit,” I stated very matter of factly.
    “Where do you want to camp?” the ranger asked, gesturing to a map laid out before me.
    My finger came down on an area that I thought looked inviting.  “This part of the park looks good to me,” I said.
    She shook her head, “There’s been a lot of rattlesnake activity in that area the last few weeks, I would stay out of that area.”
