Don’t Give In: Be Resistant

Daniel 1:1–8 Daniel was keenly aware of the temptation to yield to the pressures of the culture around him. After all, he was a long way from home, and who would really know if he, for instance, changed his diet? Yet he chose to resist the pressures and not to give in to them. He […]

A Christmas Carol

“This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger” (Luke 2:12).   Growing up, I could not wait every year to sit in front of the television and watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” These were two of my […]

A fun question to ask someone as you get to know them is whether they consider themselves an introvert or an extrovert.

While the cultures and contexts […]

The 400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving

2021 marks the 400th anniversary of a special American tradition. Four centuries ago, during the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims sat down with their new Native American friends and celebrated the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  What a great tradition – where we gather together to recount the Lord’s blessings. I love the statement from […]

Dawn to Dusk

I am not a Facebook aficionado. Being both old and old fashioned, my preferred human interaction involves being able to smell the other person’s breath. I would much rather be “in your face” than on your Facebook. So it was somewhat out of character to open a message from Mike Garland, a former co-worker, to […]
